Guitarist magazine recently spent some time assessing the Ampeg Dan Armstrong Plexi Guitar, and the verdict is in. Drumroll, please…. After a thorough vetting from fingerboard to pick-ups, the re-issued “see-through” earned a four-star rating, garnering heaps of praise for its unique voice and retro-modern good looks.
“Dan Armstrong’s vision is a perfect example of the highly experimental time of the late-sixties and seventies…. There’s definitely something quite inspiring about the instrument.”
The reviewer notes that this guitar, like the original, is still one-of-a-kind: “For those of us that ‘get it,’ the ‘see-through’ remains a truly unique and highly recognisable instrument.”
So, do you get it? We thought so.
As a bonus, the review includes an interview with Dan Armstrong’s pick-up maker son, Kent. His opinion on the new Plexi?
“I think the latest version is far superior to the old ones. Far superior.”
