Azola Lightning Bug Upright Electric Bass, 2009

Azola Lightning Bug Basses – and other Azola Electric Upright Basses or EUB’s – were built from 2001 at the Azola shop in California until Azola ceased production in 2010. Azola started building in 1994 with a rebuild of the classic Ampeg Baby Bass. While putting together his Baby Bass prototype, Azola thoughtfully approached Ampeg for authorization. The results were positive – not only was Ampeg supportive, but when they decided to formally re-issue the classic Baby Bass, they asked Azola to build them!

❌SOLD❌ Ampeg Dan Armstrong Plexiglass Fretless Bass, 1969

Here we have an Ampeg Dan Armstrong Plexiglass Fretless Bass, built in 1969 likely at the Ampeg facility in Linden, New Jersey. It’s a full 34 inch scale with 1 9/16 nut width, and weights in at 10.34 pounds – this weight is one of the drawbacks of the body material. The neck is maple with a flat-sawn Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard, which at the time was very commonly used on quality instruments. There is some wear to the covering of the pickup, and the body has some light scratching, as expected for an instrument of this age. It appears to be in original condition, with an extra washer added to support the output jack – this is always a vulnerable area.
