|Comments||Tasked by Ampeg with improving their ‘Grammer’ guitars, the late Dan Armstrong produced a number of innovative designs using non-traditional materials. Perhaps the best remembered are the Plexiglass models; this is a fairly rare fretless version of his bass. it’s in good original condition and plays well.|
