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
Case: Original Bag, Additional pickup in bag
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
Scale Length: 30"
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...
