Highly modified DA bass up for sale in Newton, MA, with the seller asking $1,600. Changes include replaced tuners, a P-bass style pickup, extra tone switch in the pickguard, replaced thumb rest, and straplocks instead of just plain strap buttons. Note that both horns have got straplocks. Comes with the OHSC, which looks to be in serviceable condition.
"This thing is the bees knees... but I probably don't need to tell you that. 1969, first year Ampeg Dan Armstrong Plexi Bass, serial #D645A puts it smack dab in the middle of the year."
"As you can see, the original pickup has been replaced with a split P-style pickup that sounds fatter than the original (unfortunate for the value, but fortunate for the sound)."
"I took a number of pics that capture the essence of the instrument. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks, Greg."
