    Definitely this. I've been actively seeking them out when I'm traveling, but I've mostly been striking out. The Chapman video really made me want a blue Armada. I'd love to be able to try one out.

    2007 Axis Pacific Blue Burst (9/25/07)
    2016 Axis SS Starry Night PDN (11/23/16)
    2016 Axis SS Semi-Hollow Trans Teal one-off (6/8/16)
    2018 Axis BFR Steel Blue No. 45 (9/18/18)
    2010 JP6 Mystic Dream (6/22/10)

    2016 Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe Caribbean Night
    1995 Washburn N2 Padauk Stain

    Thanks for the replies everyone, I suppose the manufacturing costs would have a bit of an effect as some have said and especially for a guitar which in its original form is not (unfortunately and undeservingly so) as popular as some of the others out there.

    Though looks like there would be some market out there for it if the consensus of this thread was anything to go by fingers crossed for someday!

    Sam Ash in Margate is the only dealer in South Florida that I ever see EBMM's in. They actually had quite a few on my last visit, but no Armada. I bought a Valentine two years ago without seeing one in person... still hadn't come across one in a store until Sam Ash got one a few weeks back.

    Necro bump - the problem with the Armada IMO is the lack of a second volume + tone. They took everything that makes a Les Paul a Les Paul (pretty much) except the dual controls... and created the Armada.

    If they offered an Armada that looked like the custom one made for Rob Chapman, I'd be all over it...

    I've got a black one and I'm in love with it. I think the problem is that guitar a general rule...are dumb.

    No, but really, it's not a cheap guitar and if we're not exactly dumb, we're not exactly least most of us. Cheap? Would that be more accurate? Many guitar players can only afford one $2k guitar. So why would they take a chance on a guitar that they've never touched or seen anyone play?

    Take my word for it, it's a sweet sounding axe, full of mojo. Feels very different from any other EBMM offering.
