The Music Man Armada Electric Guitar is a groundbreaking instrument that represents several innovations for the guitarmaker. For the first time, Music Man is using a neck-through design in one of their guitars. With a mahogany neck running through its mahogany body, the Armada gains in both tone and sustain, bringing an exciting new sensation to a Music Man instrument. The fingerboard is rosewood with a 12" neck radius, 22 stainless steel frets and curved triangle inlays. The body is topped by a striking layer of figured maple that's cut in the form of a "V" to highlight perfectly 2 Music Man proprietary humbucking pickups. The headstock sports an inset Armado logo to cap off the list of cool, new features. Includes case.

    Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Armada Electric Guitar:

    I have been playing guitar for over 20 years. I just recently picked up the Music Man Armada from a Guitar Center in IL. I was instantly drawn to it because its stunning looks. I own a lot of different styles of amps and I haven't got a bad sound of out of it yet. This guitar has a treble mod done to it so when you roll down on your tube amp, you wont loose any clarity. The pickups are not super high output but you can get some great tones. Metal to clean and all in between. The neck reminded me of a 59 Les Paul. Lastly the build quality is excellent!! I put some NYXL Strings on the guitar and seems to work well with that combination. P.S. Don't be afraid to be unique!!!

    Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Armada Electric Guitar:

    I played one of these at a GC in CT. I wanted it! Until I plugged it in. It has the nicest neck and action on any guitar I've ever played. I don't know why that didn't translate into sound when I plugged into a backstair HT-60 Stage. May be it was the pickups or maybe me. I was disappointed. I ended up buying a PRS CST-24 instead.
