Re: Dan Armstrong lucite guitar needed

I've just got a "replica" Ampeg , lucite guitar. Email for pix,etc. Mike

Re: Dan Armstrong lucite guitar needed

I Have a Conrad lucite copy if your interested.

Bridge, Hardshell case, pickups, serial no....

I just bought a '60 Dan Armstrong plexi (LOVE it!) and I'm looking for info on the following;
1) my "original" bridge doesn't have the fret-like wire that was atop the wooden bridge, so I'd like to get a complete original bridge or one of the ones from/on the recent reissues with the immovable saddles -- if those bridges fit on the original guitars.
2) my hardshell case is falling apart. i was told by ampeg that a strat case would work, went to buy one, tried fitting the DA in there and it doesn't fit. anyone have a DA hardshell case or know what case fits the guitar?
3) I only have the rock treble pickup -- would like the modern drive or humbucker if anyone has.
4) How do you determine the exact age etc. of the guitar from the serial no.? where IS the serial no?
5) any other info would be helpful.

thanks!

Christian

Re: Bridge, Hardshell case, pickups, serial no....

If you're looking for the Serial Number, peer down through the curve of the top cutaway, as if you were wearing the guitar in a strap. You should see it through the Lucite.

replacement switch

I have recently picked up an old clear body Dan Armstrong from a local pawnshop.
The switch has been replaced, what do I need to return this back to spec?
Can I tell how old this is by the serial number?
thank you for your time.
Thanks

Re: replacement switch

:There is a way to tell the production number and somewhat"date" the guitar from the serial number. Did you find the original equipment you needed. I'm looking for a replacement saddle. Please contact me by email if you want to discuss further. Dave. I have recently picked up an old clear body Dan Armstrong from a local pawnshop.

Perspex body DA guitar

Could you please let me know the name and specs of the transparent perspex (?) Dan Armstrong guitar used by Keith Richards around the time of the Exile on Main Street album. I dont think KR ever got the same sound after he stopped using that guitar. Are there any available how much are they etc.
Thanx

Re: Perspex body DA guitar

I have a shaftsbury DA guitar which is what Keith played. It is currently in pieces but I am planning to rebuild it fairly soon. It has been modified to some extent, mainly to strengthen the neck/body joint which was a bit of a weak point, and I do not have the original pickup which was a gibson-type humbucker. I have no plans to sell this guitar but I can give you more specs and photo's if you like. Also if you were to offer a good price I might consider selling.

Amplifier Information ?

I've looked all over the net to no avail to find information on my amp - it's a Dan Armstrong 30w tube, model 'Dan 1', serial no 1200, with built-in graphic equaliser.
I believe it's late 70s-early 80s....
Can anyone give me an age or point me to a source of more info ?

Re: Amplifier Information ?

I am looking for info on Dan Armstrong amps as well. I have the 100 watt version and need schematics. Good luck

Re: Amplifier Information ?

: I am looking for info on Dan Armstrong amps as well. I have the 100 watt version and need schematics. Good luck

I also have a Dan Armstrong 100watt head I purchased in the UK - where they were originally produced by Boosey & Hawkes ( http://www.booseyandhawkes.co.uk/ ) who might be able to provide schematic info. Other information is available on the site http://www.danarmstrong.org/dan14.html/ . Hope this helps! Dave.

armstrong acoustic archtop

HELP!
I own a Armstrong archtop six string acoustic guitar that i got about
35 years ago from a relative as a gift. I have been all around the net trying to find out if this instument is worth fixing (neck is loose.) Also who made it and how old could it really be?
The reason I am contacting your site is obviously the name and the fact that i found connections with sears and dan electro ( i was told that this was a sears guitar but i found out that they made Silvertones.
thank you john coombs
