The ML1 X standard is a powerful HSS electric guitar that combines classic S-type design with contemporary flair! Beautifully crafted from classic tonewoods including Maple, Mahogany and Ash, the ML1 X seamlessly blends flexibility, playability and tone.

Top it off with an exclusive Goldtop finish, and you've got a cutting-edge instrument that oozes vintage class.
