About This Listing

Smoked lucite Ampeg Dan Armstrong bass, with two interchangeable pickups, adjustment tool, original brochure and hard case. Instrument and peripherals are in excellent playing and cosmetic condition.

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.

The ADA4's neck features 24 frets, which when combined with the unique diamond-cut acrylic double cutaway body allows a full two-octave access clear of the bass' ultra-thin body. 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..."
