Chapman Standard Series ML1 Modern Baritone Graphite V2
Manufacturer's ID: ML1B-MOD-GRT
What we say:
The ML1 Modern Baritone guitar from the Chapman Standard Series is a 28” scales length brute, fitted with 12-60 gauge strings and strung to B. This well featured rock-axe is tremendous fun and has lots to recommend it.
What we have here is an S-type with an Alder body topped with a veneer of gorgeous Ash and a reverse-headstock satin finish Maple neck. The fit and finish is very clean and we like small details like the neck having a volute for greater strength at this notoriously weak point.
The fretboard is Ebony, quite impressive at this price point! 24 Jumbo frets provide a plentiful experience for the rock or metal player and, due to that extended scale length, the strings feel nice and playable instead of flapping around: this Baritone intonates really well.
The two pickups are specially voiced Chapman Sonorous Zer0 baritone humbuckers, ceramic units with a usefully hot output (the bridge pickup measures 16.5k ohms of DC resistance) to allow for enormous levels of gain and output!
The Tone knob features a push/pull coil split to thin out the humbuckers for lighter, more jangly sounds and surf-style twangy riffs.
This Ml1 Modern Baritone, available here in Graphite, is an impressive guitar available at an excellent price.
