This guitar first appeared on Craigslist Classified in February 2011 with an asking price of $2,500. Apparently it didn't sell, because it then appeared on the 'Reverb' web site in February 2013 with an asking price of $4,000.
"A near perfect 1970 Dan Armstrong lucite guitar. I bought this from a friend about 30 years ago. His mom had bought it for his 18th birthday present, and then 3 months later he joined the armed forces, and it got put in the back of a closet. I would usually take it out once or twice a year and noodle on it, but it seemed impractical for performance, so it mostly sat in my closet too. This guitar has seen very little use and is as close to factory perfect as a guitar of this age is likely to be found anywhere.The guitar came with two pickups, one an unmarked humbucker with square pole pieces, and a single coil bar pole that is stamped RB. There are two extra bridge saddles, one with the fret metal installed, and one of plain rosewood. There is also the factory truss rod adjustment tool, and an envelope from the Ampeg company. The guitar is kept in the original case, which was designed to fit the bass guitars as well, so there is extra length inside. I have worked as a Luthier, Model maker, and Acrylic fabricator, and went over the instrument several years ago, polishing out every little scratch I could find. I won't say there are no scratches, but I can't find them if there are. The Humbucking pickup has 2 small surface cracks from age that are not removable. I understand there are small differences between the 1969 and 1970 guitars, mainly a thinner neck on the 1970's, and the fret strip on the saddle. The serial number is A2553D, visible through the body as a stamp on the bass side of the neck mounting area. There are a few dings on the case."
