George Porter, Jr (The Meters)
"I found on fly dates that the Ampeg SVT line works anywhere in the world I am. I have seen my guitar player go though hell every night with his amp, but the Ampeg SVT always works."

In 1969 Ampeg and guitar super-guru Dan Armstrong set about revolutionizing the electric guitar. What came next was "clearly" innovative, technologically advanced and well, clear! The Rolling Stones took the stage with Keith Richards sporting the 'See Through' guitar and Bill Wyman playing the companion bass. The legend was born.
Ampeg is once again offering this iconic guitar to the public. "See Through" a Dan Armstrong today.
