Rabea Massaad on the ML3 BEA:

“The ML3 BEA guitars are an amalgamation of all my guitar influences musically and physically up to now in my career - achieving a combination of beauty and brutality - both tonally and visually!”

Body & Neck

Satin finished Alder is used for the body, known for its pronounced upper midrange, as well as a stunning Poplar Burl top. This makes it perfect for contemporary styles, and allows to remain resonant and clear in any mix - particularly important with dense compositions and complex musical styles. A series of carved curves also ensure that you'll be ultra-comfortable handling the ML3 BEA.

The bolt-on neck is Wenge. Known for its weighty feel, it produces a tone that's similarly heavy - plenty of sustain and warmth, perfect for accentuating the extended range resonance of a baritone.

Hardware & Electronics

Rabea selected the pickups for his signature model to make sure that the sound suited his unique playing style. Naturally, his signature Bare Knuckle Silo pickup sits in the bridge position, for guttural riffs and sizzling leads a like. A Seymour Duncan SL59 combines humbucker resonance with the sensitivity of a single-coil – perfect for pronounced baritone punch.

It doesn't end there though; a 5-way switch and coil tap allows for a whole host of extra sounds, allowing you to make full use of this exquisite pickup combination.

Black and chrome hardware and reveal binding polishes off this guitars classy, modern aesthetic. The Chapman string-through hardtail bridge combined with the Graph Tech tusq nut ensures tuning stability and a responsive action. All in all, the ML3 BEA Baritone offers more than just djent mayhem - it's a perfectly precise machine that'll respond brilliantly to whatever you throw at it.
