ErnieBall MusicMan Armada
ErnieBall MusicMan comes up with a unique looking neck-through-body guitar with a V-shape maple top, the Armada.
The MusicMan Armada's flamed maple V-Shape top turned quite a number of at the recently held 2013 NAMM Show.
The Armada joins ErnieBall/MusicMan's 2013 catalog of guitars featuring eye catching aesthetics and embellishments.
The guitar features a mahogany body with a single cutaway shape. Its most distinctive feature is the top of the body, it features a flame or quilt maple V-shaped bookmatched top that gives the Armada series a retro sci-fi appeal.
Connected via neck-through-body design is its Honduran Mahogany neck. It is topped by a Rosewood fretboard that has 22 frets. It has a scale length of 24.75" with a neck radius of 12". The neck matches the bodies color while the headstock matches the color of the V-shaped maple top.
Adding to its already impressive aesthetics are even more embellishments, it has a 4-ply Cream/Black/Cream/Black binding that wraps around the body, v-shape top and the headstock. Chrome hardware further accentuates the color combination of the instrument. Wrapping up its eye candies are custom made mother of pearl inlays and a single ply cream binding on the neck.
The guitar is equipped with Schaller M6-IND locking tuners with pearl buttons to keep the strings in tune. On the other end of the string is a Standard Tuneomatic bridge with thumbwheel height adjustment and individual saddles, paired with a Graph Tech tail piece.
Capturing the guitar's tone are two MusicMan Humbucking pickups, that are controlled via a 3-way toggle pickup selector, a volume knob and a tone knob.
This guitar is available in a variety of color combinations including Flame Natural Trans Red, Flame Sunburst, Quilt Natural Trans Red, Flame Black Trans, Quilt Black Trans, Quilt Sunburst and Black/Gold Opaque.
The Ernie Ball Armada is expected to be available in early April of 2013. For the complete specifications, you can visit MusicMan.
