The revamped Ernie Ball Music Man Armada has arrived. New features include a slimmer neck carve, newly-designed custom Music Man pickups, and a full maple top. The Armada is now available in two color options: black with gold hardware and an ebony fretboard or Tiger Eye with chrome hardware and a rosewood fretboard. Constructed from carefully selected tone woods, both color options sport a Honduran mahogany neckthrough design with okoume wings, arched maple top and solid maple headstock. The redesigned Music Man pickups feature a higher output bridge humbucker with alnico 5 magnets and a neck humbucker with ceramic magnets, delivering a well balanced tone with smooth mids. Additional appointments include block atlante pearl inlays and parchment binding on the neck and body.
