Shiver me timbers matey, it's a Dan Armstrong with a scary pirate sticker! I found this one on the Reverb web site with an asking price of $2,500. Here's the description...
"This is an original 1969 Ampeg Dan Armstrong Lucite guitar in excellent condition. It comes with 2 pickups; an original Rock Treble pick up as well as a Kent Armstrong Rock Treble pickup. It comes with an original hard shell case. The only changes I've made are the addition of strap locks and a new wooden bridge guide custom fabricated with a fret wire added to the wood. This insures that the intonation is perfect."
Back on the market in April 2015 with an asking price of $3,400...stay tuned.
"1969 Ampeg ADA6 clear lucite/plexiglass Dan Armstrong model in fabulous shape; a guitar with a long and storied history in the annals of rock. Played by some of my very favorite rock heroes: Paul Westerberg (The Replacements), Johnny Thunders(New York Dolls), Joe Perry (Aerosmith), Greg Ginn (Black Flag), Ronnie Wood (Faces & Rolling Stones), Keith Richards (Rolling Stones), and Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters/Nirvana). Keep it simple, stoopid! One volume and tone control, one pickup. Plug in and rock! Comes with the Rock Treble pickup (they made five others which are interchangeable - see the recessed slot on top of the guitar - held in with a thumbscrew on the back of the guitar). The Rock Treble pickup is all you really need. If you like P-90s you'll like the Rock Treble."
"The case is pretty beat up but it still functions well in every way. Some previous owner spray-painted the name of his/her band on it - "Sweet Releese." Heh…cool. Has just the right amount of road wear to be totally awesome."
"The guitar itself is one of the cleaner examples I've seen. No major scratches in the lucite and the pickguard is crack free with little to no wear in the lettering. The toggle switch is rock solid (many of these have been known to get loose or break) and functions perfectly."
There have been a few minor modifications to this guitar during its 46 years. They are as follows:
"*It looks like one of the three original strap pins has been replaced and two are missing the rubber washer that sits underneath them. This affects nothing. All three work as expected."
"*Also, it would appear that one of its previous owners was a southpaw as there is an extra strap pin added to the lower cutaway horn. This also affects nothing. In fact, if you're left handed and have always wanted an ADA6 here's your chance to own one and not feel guilty about drilling holes in your newly acquired vintage axe."
"*The 1969 model originally came with an all-rosewood bridge saddle. This one came to me with a rosewood bridge saddle that has a guitar fret embedded in it for better sustain and intonation. Later models came equipped with this same style bridge. I was told this was custom made and not original? I'm not able to verify this. As you can see, whoever made it did a nice job. I have another ADA6 that has the original '69 bridge; I cannot tell the difference between the two."
"Other than that this thing is all original and in very good shape. Original Schaller tuners work well, there's no scratchy pots, it's comfortable to play and works REALLY well for slide guitar in its current set up. The action is just right for slide, but could easily be lowered by tightening the truss rod and/or installing a set of .09 gauge strings, if so desired. As it's set up currently it's still very playable for standard play. But compared to my other ADA6 this thing just kills with a slide. It has just the right amount of tension and the action is just high enough that it doesn't fret out at all when running the slide up and down the strings. Played standard or with slide it sounds smoking' hot either way."
"The later models ('70-'71) had a much thinner piece of maple for the neck on them. I don't care for the thinner necks. This has the chunkier neck and it is very comfortable to me. Whether playing "Left of the Dial" or "Stay With Me" this guitar will get it going for ya."
