1970 Dan Armstrong ARMG-2

Here is a vintage 1970 Dan Armstrong ARMG-2 ‘See-Through’ lucite electric guitar. These incredibly iconic transparent-bodied guitars and basses were only produced between 1969-1971, and are quite desirable for both their performance and advanced aesthetic.

This particular example, serial number D351A, is in good condition. Although this guitar does exhibit a few modifications, there are no structural problems, i.e. no breaks, no cracks, and no repairs to the body or neck. The pickguard has been cracked around the input jack, and has unfortunately been modified for a selector switch. The tuners, truss rod cover, pots, knobs, bridge saddle, strap pins, and input jack have all been replaced. The guitar does feature the original Treble Rock pickup.

Somewhat famous for the enhanced sustain thanks to the dense lucite body, this guitar sounds exceptionally great. It plays smoothly, as it has a perfectly straight neck which is intonated with precision. It has the lowest possible action, and the slick medium-sized neck profile enables even those use to slim guitar necks to play it as if it were second nature. The pickup sounds awesome. Notoriously slightly heavier than your average guitar, this one weighs 9 pounds and 10 ounces.

This is a great opportunity to buy a rare original production example for the same price as the Japanese reissues! The guitar does not include a case, but will be packed and shipped accordingly.
