Pretty rare 1970s CSL Dan Armstrong Electric Guitar.

Made in Japan by the manufacturer of Ibanez and branded CSL ( Charles Summerfield Ltd) for UK import.

Its an interesting take on the Dan Armstrong Plexi/Lucite guitar - it has two Maxon humbuckers very close together with a master volume and tone and 3 way switch. Its all original but is pre owned and loved and has signs of use and age.

  • A few small marks and dings and a couple of scratches around the body and on the back of the neck as shown in the pics below.Theres a little ding in the edge of the body on the lower inner horn just below the neck 24th fret.
  • Some marks on the headstock face and around the headstock edges.
  • Tarnishing to the hardware , especially the machinehead keys and the bridge posts.
  • Damage to the scratchplate where the jack socket is - my guess is it took a knock with a lead plugged in which broke the scratchplate around the socket - it now has a couple of washers used to cover this and strengthen the area.
  • Some fretwear.
  • The bridge has 3 white nylon saddles and 3 metal ones. Not sure if this is original.
  • The nut is a replacement but I will include the original in the sale.

It has a strong 3 piece maple neck with double octave rosewood 24 fret neck with brass frets which I have cleaned and lightly polished and the fretboard has been oiled..The electrics all work fine but are 30 + years old.

New strings have been fitted and the action is low - if anything it could be raised a touch, the truss rod works and the intonation is pretty good but the low is a little out. The buyer may wish to have a set up to their requirements.

A pretty rare guitar that I'm in no rush to sell. No case but will be well packaged for shipping.I'm open to offers but only very near ones will be considered.
