What we say:

At A Glance:

The Chapman Standard Series ML1 Modern Baritone Abyss, designed to go as low as you need and appointed so that it doesn't fail you. Not only is it stuffed full of quality features, the ML1 Baritone is designed by players for players in the real world.

Features We Love:

A Giant Scale

Chapman haven't stopped ad adding an extra inch or 2 to their existing design, they've gone all out with a 28" scale! Don't be scare by this giant though, with Chapmans high quality and particular attention to detail on their necks, it's highly playable. The 28" scale helps keep things tight when you're getting low without having to up your string gauges to that of steel cables!

Quality Tonewoods

Chapman haven't just appointed this guitar with top quality woods, they've carefully chosen them for the very design of a Baritone. While a traditional ML1 body is usually made from mahogany the Baritone model is made from Alder. Mahogany is a fine wood however it can get muddy when things start to get low, Alder while not as mid-range focused maintains it's balance as you resonate through those lower notes. Add to this the bolt on maple neck and Macassar ebony fingerboard and you have a balanced, clear, and snappy tone ready to dive deep in to lower tunings.

Chapman Sonorous Zerø Pickups

Designed for modern tones, these pickups were the perfect choice. The moderately hot output (Bridge - 12.5K, Neck - 10.5K) keeps things clear even under gain which is perfect when you're going low. These pickups are designed to be bright and stay clear under the heaviest of distortions.
