Starting at left with Michael Anthony, of Van Halen and Chickenfoot. Though I'm not sure he ever played one onstage he appears in this photo along with an Ampeg representative (probably at a NAMM show) peering through a reissue Dan Armstrong · Ampeg guitar. At right, in 1970 Dan Armstrong jams on one of his own creations, a Dan Armstrong clear bass in what looks like his shop in the village based on the brick wall in the background. Notice the use of an Ampeg bass amplifier as well as what looks like a Shure column speaker for PA over his right shoulder. This may have been taken at one of the 'after-hour' jam sessions that often took place in his shop.
