Ive learned over the years and not just from guitars but from the design world...primarily cars that many great classic designs are met with very strong resistance.....The most recent example is the Armada. This is the first guitar that I have zero involvement with It is Dudles and Scottys baby.
I love it. I love the initial comments where people didn't like the looks....WHy because it is what is called disruptive design.....it comes at you from such a different place that your initial reaction is "Change? I dont want for change...I didnt ask for change.....I dont like it"
Now many may never like it but the truly great disruptive design grows on you and there is a moment where you embrace it....Im watching this happen in the sneak peek section.... There is a color or angle presented and the next thing is that people are saying wait a minute I thought I hated this guitar...I kind of like itMakes me confident in the guitar!
BTW the guitar is so fun to play and sounds great Dudley and Scotty and crew did a fabulous job
