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.
