I love it when a classic guitar has a modern twist applied to it. I love it more when that twist works! The Gibson Explorer Tremolo is such a guitar. The classic yet radical shape of the Gibson Explorer works so well with a Floyd-Rose tremolo system. They look they should have always been together. The black and white combination used in the body and headstock paint is also a match that is made in heaven.

With my recent guitar articles I've covered a few different bridge types, neck types, body shapes and pickup combinations. Today, I share with you a different body material. I'm not talking about different wood types either. The Viktorian Ruth isn't made of wood. It's made of carbon fibre! Cool.

I've mentioned in previous articles how I enjoy finding a new guitar each week with that something unique or special about it. The Music Man Armada has so many individual attributes that I fear it may make my future articles pale in comparison. It has a unique design and many hardware features that make this guitar a must-have in any serious guitar wishlist (in my serious opinion).
Let's list some features!

When I last wrote about GuitarTone by Sonoma Wireworks, they had just released an update that allowed you to create a truly unique tone by using twin amplifier speaker/microphone combinations that generated a true stereo sound. I'd also written about my desire to be able to record the awesome GuitarTone sounds—I didn't want to write GuitarTone tones—into either StudioTrack or FourTrack. That hasn't happened yet, but the latest release allows you to connect GuitarTone to Audiobus.

If I was building a super collection of guitars with something like 52 different models, I'd want to make sure each guitar had something unique to offer. Otherwise I'd go to my guitar den—I'm pretty sure that's what you'd call a room with 52 guitars in it—and spend all my time trying to work out which guitar was which. That would be time wasted. I should clearly be able to walk into the guitar den—that's now a thing—and go straight to the guitar I was thinking of playing. Something like this week's guitar, the Musicvox Space Cadet. I doubt you'd mistake it for another guitar.

I love black guitars. I also love white guitars. Anything else ... Not so much. One of the things I sometimes wonder about though is "should you take fretboards into consideration when talking about guitar colour?"
The guitar I'm adding to my weekly wishlist today—the FGN Expert Elan Dark Evolution has also thought of that it seems. They've given people the choice between a maple fretboard for white guitars and rosewood for black guitars. Brilliant!
