As seen upper right, and belonging to Craig Johnson, this Dan Armstrong instrument features the highest serial number I have seen to date A2837D which almost certainly was produced extremely close to the end of the production run of these instruments.
When asked about the actual number of instruments produced from 1969 to 1971 Dan had said which I originally took to mean 6,000 guitars and 6,000 basses.
As seen upper left, the base of the neck is also where the instruments serial number can be found.
It is stamped into the bass side of the neck in a black ink or dye and once the instrument has been strapped on, or otherwise held in the playing position, one can easily see the number by merely looking straight down and through the clear acrylic body and onto this portion of the neck.
As a means of quick reference, guitar necks alone can be approximately dated by the serial number on them.
Everything that Dan and Ampeg had learned about the manufacturing these instruments were featured on these instruments.
The UAD Bandwidth Allocation setting (in UAD Meter & Control Panel) may need to be reduced to compensate when UAD plug-ins are used within a DAW.
