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.
Serial Number N/A, Built 1969.
Pricing $1749.00 CAD with original case.
Neck Maple neck with unbound rosewood fingerboard, rosewood head plate and trussrod cover.
Frets No frets to wear out!  30″ scale length.
Body Instantly recognisable Plexiglass double-cutaway body.
Finish Neck has clear lacquer finish in good shape. The body has no finish.
Hardware/electronics All original with addition of washer around output jack. Grover tuning gears, woodgrain pickguard, rosewood thumb rest, steel bridge base with rosewood saddle. Original Bill Lawrence design pickup with some wear around the blade magnet.
Playability/Action Plays very well. Fretless basses are normally set to a low action to get a ‘growl’, which with frets would be an undesirable ‘rattle’.
Case Original case included.
