What a lovely thread to have as my 500th post. Only took me 4 years. Anyways, I have had many GAS threads on this forum, but none like this. None like this... Ernie Ball/Music Man Armada HH Black/Gold Opaque 2013 6-String Electric Guitar I tried an Armada in person this weekend and it was certainly a unique experience. I don't think there literally is a guitar it can be compared to. It is like someone took the body of a PRS SC-45 and put a Gretsch neck on it. The center curve is at such an angle that -unlike normal LP-style guitars- your arm does not dig into the edge. Also, the center curve makes the bridge and neck seem raised compared to the rest of the guitar leaving ample picking room (that being another Gretsch specific feature). Full neck-through with a sculpted heel as well. It truly is an oddity, but an oddity that is needed in our stagnating guitar market. It is literally a neck-through Gretsch with PAF humbuckers when you think about it, which is great in my book. ESP Custom Shop EX w/ Oswald Graphic 6-String Electric Guitar This ESP is something that has caught my eye for the past 6 years, and now it has undergone a price drop. It is easily the most obnoxious thing I have ever seen and I love it with all my heart for that. Quick, somebody buy both of these guitars before I lose my willpower!
