If aggressive, melodic and powerful extended range filth is your thing, then look no further than the newly improved 2019 ML1 Modern Baritone. Fully-loaded with 12-60 gauge strings, you can effortlessly tune to drop A and shake the pillars of heaven. Every note slams you in the chest like a war hammer courtesy of the Chapman Zerø Sonorous Alnico 5 humbuckers.

But don't be fooled into thinking that the ML1 Modern Baritone is simply just a 'djent machine'. With its alder body, satin-finished maple neck and ebony fretboard a veritable cornucopia of tones are ready for you at the flick of it's three-way blade or the pull of it's coil split-able tone pot.

Action-packed with features such as rolled edges and locking tuners, finished off with a natural reveal binding, the ML1 Modern Baritone is your to take away... just don't feed it after dark.

"A very well-made, nicely thought-out instrument with superb attention to detail. Small things like the binding on the body, the rounded heel joint and locking tuners all add up to a guitar that is above what you'd expect for that level of spend."
