    Armada Love....

    So
    I've had my Armada for about 6 months now.... and it's the best of everything, - I can't put it down, it's actually getting me to play more and more every day.

    my question is.... why aren't these in everyone's stable? have you guys tried them?

    Love my Armada! Not your standard EBMM, but at the same time it oozes Music Man and Music Man quality.

    Never had a chance to try one out. I can't buy something I can't play first. I just can't.

    Same as Greg, I have never seen one in person. I've purchased EBMM guitars without having played the model, but nothing so different from the others. I've always been intrigued by them, though.

    Ditto. Always been curious, haven't had the opportunity. Terrified that I'll love it and buy another guitar.

    That's how I feel too. I also think I use my Morse all the time so I really don't need to try it.

    High-quality build can be guaranteed, but in the end I believe that it's about the design-shape, finish, and how it looks.

    If an Armada were to appear at a local shop, I'd love to try one and most likely bring it home with me. Especially if it was that blue...

    I've special-ordered each EBMM I own, but many times I've at least been able to try one out before placing my order... I have yet to see an Armada "in the flesh".

    [rant]
    Stores within a 50mile drive of me (so ~8 or so) never have any EBMM in stock. They can always order me one, but *I* can always order me one! If I wanted to order a guitar, I'm not going to drive to a brick and mortar store to place an order, this isn't the 1980's, I have the internet on my phone, ffs. I leave my house and drive to a store to have something in my hands *now*.

    At my local GC, I've seen Majesty, Various JPs, Luke, St Vincent, Cutlass, Silhouette and Morse.

    Never seen Armada, AL or surprisingly an Axis. I have seen several SBMM Axis though.
