I am the owner of single sliding pick up double cut away timber built Dan Armstrong - does anyone know anything about their history?

Re: Dan Armstrong sliding pick up

I bought one in 1976 from a guitarist who had recently got it from Clapton. (Jack Bruce had a matching bass). I used it in a pro cabaret act for over 30 years. Always kept in tune and plyed great. I dropped it and the neck cracked near the head. I got it fixed by a professional luthier. Saw one sell on eBay about 2 years ago for around £1000. Would sell this at a good price. Must be very rare these days.

I had one on 1976/7/8 playing in a punk band in Birmingham UK. The neck broke off during the punk festival August 1977.
Great sounding guitar

Clive:

I am the owner of a "Timber" Dan Armstrong with a single sliding pickup which I purchased new in 1975 in Sacramento, California. When I purchased it, there were two options in the colors - dark mahogany, which I have, and a "Pumpkin" color. I purchased it for about $750.00 and it came with a huge hard-shell case. I don't think there is much resale value - or at least the stores where I am are do not think much of the guitar. I look forward to hearing from you.
