Here we have abit of a one-off for you at RGG. Its a lovely 1973 Univox Lucite (Ampeg Dan Armstrong Styled) Plexiglass Guitar. This is one very cool guitar & you aint gonna see many, if any about!

She is in great condition, with killer action & straight neck. The only change has been to replace the machine heads with better quality Kluson styled heads. The single pickup sounds awesome & really does cut through & will surprise you with its clarity & power.  She comes with light-weight foam padded gig case.

This style of guitar became synonymous in the early-mid 70’s as a ‘To be seen with’ piece. Kieth Richards, was an endorsee of the similar Ampeg Dan Armstrong acrylic model.

When searching for vintage/rare guitars, particularly when on a budget, one name that often comes to the mind to collectors is Univox, a name generally associated with the “copy era” of the ’70s. Univox was one of the first brands to make copies, and the brand achieved a fair amount of national visibility and distribution.

Univox was not, as you might guess, just another isolated Japanese import, but was part of a much larger story of its importer, the Merson company. And in this context, Univox is a part of the much larger story that included names you probably see everywhere but know little about, since they’re off the beaten path, names such as Tempo, Giannini, Westbury, Korg and much more!


So come on, your’e gonna stand out in the crowd with this beauty, so don’t let her slip away!
