SHIPPING

We put a strong emphasis on fantastic shipping practices. After learning from shipping thousands of guitars, we have come up with a few shipping rules:

  1. We only ship instruments and amps with FedEx or UPS.
  2. All shipments (besides inexpensive accessories) are shipped with a signature required, no exceptions.  
  3. Instruments are packed so there is no movement in the outer box, and/or inside the case (this is the key!).
  4. Plenty of tape!
  5. Always have shipments on the truck the same (by 2pm ET) or next day.

You will receive a tracking number as soon as your order ships. Please note: Tracking numbers usually take 24 hours before they appear in FedEx/UPS/USPS systems.  All delivery changes (hold for pickup, address change, etc.) must be requested before your purchase leaves our store, otherwise, they are the responsibility of the customer.

RETURNS

You can return an item for any reason (simply just don’t like it, etc.) 5 days from receipt of the item. This does not apply to international orders nor to instruments with custom modifications completed by our tech team per the customer's request (pickup change, strap button install, etc.) You will need to pay the return shipping cost and actual outgoing shipping cost (even if “free shipping” is offered), as well as applicable restocking fees dependent on your payment method (usually a 3-10% fee).

If an item is damaged in shipping, we will always complete a return at $0 cost to you (we will cover return shipping, and charge no restocking fee no matter the payment method, etc) AND/OR offer a partial refund to fully cover the issue. Please notify us within 48 hours of delivery if there are issues with your instrument. 

We highly recommend reviewing our full return policy before purchasing.

1998 Dan Armstrong Ampeg Lucite Bass Clear Reissue

From the original press release for the reissue:
"...The Ampeg ADA4 is a near-exact replica of the original Ampeg Dan Armstrong "Plexi" bass, the 1998 MIJ reissue ADA4 features the same eye-catching clear acrylic body and unique sound that made its predecessor an immediate hit among iconic bassists of the era."

TRADES - LAYAWAY - 0% FINANCING 

Weight: 9.5lbs

Case: Original Bag, Additional pickup in bag

Year: 1998

Cosmetic Condition: Excellent.  There are a few minor areas of scratching on the bass - mostly on the back and one of the horns.  See listing photos for details.  Super clean bass. 

SETUP & INSPECTED BY OUR LUTHIER

TECH NOTES: Setup low and easy playing

Body: Unique diamond-cut acrylic double cutaway

Neck Joint: Bolt-on

Frets: 24

Scale Length:  30"

Tuners: Grover

Additional Info:

The re-issue benefits from an improved bolt-on neck joint, as well as a solid bridge with compensated brass saddles. This bridge couples directly to the bridge plate enhancing tone and sustain, while the bridge plate, which is also the string holder (tail piece), allows the most efficient string-to-body contact available.

Custom removable pickups by Kent Armstrong, who designed the original guitar and bass pickups for his father in the '60s and '70s, employ a unique stacked design where the tone control mixes the treble and bass coils for a depth of tone that belies the instrument's 30-inch scale. Two pickups are included with the bass: "Bright Bass" and "Deep Bass."

Additional instrument features include nickel Grover tuners, vintage rotary volume and tone pots with a two-way switch, and an authentic Formica pick guard with aluminum backing for electronic shielding and maximum durability...
