    Product Description

    The Chapman ML1 Modern Baritone Standard is a monstrous yet melodic machine that's perfect for guitar players who want to explore the extended range! This instrument combines classic design with crushing, contemporary tones — comprising a trusted tonewood mix, punchy Chapman 'Sonorous Zero' pickups and a smooth satin-finished neck with rolled fingerboard edges. The ML1 Modern Baritone is simply an outstanding part of the Chapman Guitars catalogue, and with its thick 12-60 gauge strings — you can effortlessly tune down to Drop A and shake the pillars of heaven!

    Key Features

    • Alder Body — Popular timber synonymous with bolt-on instruments. Offers a balanced sonic foundation for the pickups, with tight lows, bold mids and singing highs.
    • Swamp Ash Veneer Top — Gives the guitar a stunning, premium look that's accentuated by the gorgeous 'Abyss' finish!
    • Satin-Finished Maple Neck — Popular neck timber adds brightness into the sonic mix; boasting a comfortable "C" profile and a satin finish for ultra-fast playability.
    • Rolled-Edge Ebony Fingerboard — Provides a smooth, played-in feel. No sharp fret ends here!
    • Bolt-On Construction with Recessed Neck Joint — Yields a snappy tone for an immediate note response, with recessed heel joint enabling unrestricted upper-fret access.
    • 24 Jumbo Frets — Large size offers a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
    • Chapman 'Sonorous Zero' Humbuckers — These powerful, clear and punchy pickups perfectly complement the tonewood cocktail; resulting in firm, chunky baritone sounds. Expect seismic bass frequencies and a crystal-clear mid-range, clean or distorted!
    • 3-Position Pickup Switch & Coil Split — Yields 6 different sounds in total for superb tonal versatility. Access 3 full humbucking tones as standard via the pickup switch, and engage the push-pull tone knob to split their coils for 3 more single-coil sounds.
    • Locking Tuners — Ingenious locking mechanism makes restringing easier and means less string winds around the tuning posts; resulting a better tuning stability.
    • String-Through-Body Bridge — Enhances sustain, with individual saddles allowing for precise action and intonation settings.
    • Graph Tech TUSQ XL Nut — Low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips.

    It looks great, love the shape and it seems to be the right weight for me. Only messed about with it as I can't actually play and only know a few cords but it sounds good through an Orange Micro Terror I have. Time to start learning. Personally, I listened to other guitarists who said buy a cheap peice of rubbish just in case you don't like playing that way you haven't wasted money. I think this was very wrong and buying cheap put me off... The Chapman ML1 feels great to hold and strum and I think I have found what I need to get me back in the game. Thanks Andertons (and Rob) for all your videos and reviews.

    What a sound! I thought drop-d tuning sounded dirty, but baritone - WOW! Everyone comments on how good this guitar looks and sounds. If you love the dirty rock sound like me, you won't be disappointed with this guitar.
