The ML1 Modern Baritone is a dual-humbucker guitar that combines classic design with crushing modern tones. A unique tonewood combo and a simple, comfortable playability make the ML1 Modern Baritone an outstanding addition to the Chapman Guitars catalogue.

Chapman Guitars ML1 Modern Baritone

Body & Neck

Chapman have opted for a combination of classic tonewoods for the body: Alder with an Ash veneer top. Alder and Ash are known for being widely used on the vast majority of Fender guitars since the release of their very first solid-bodies back in the '50s. Offering a brilliant combination of scooped but crystal-clear mids and rich, resonating sustain, these woods provide real tonal character.

For the neck, they've opted for satin-finished Maple, with a set-neck configuration featuring a volute. This reinforcement, combined with a dual-action truss rod, means sturdy tuning stability - perfect for that extended range sound. The satin finish and familiar C-shape neck means you'll be right at home, whatever your style! 

Hardware & Electronics

Chapman have loaded the ML1 Modern with two Sonorous Zero Baritone humbuckers; power, clarity, a dense midrange and a hefty low-end perfectly complements the unique tonewood cocktail, resulting in firm, chunky baritone sounds. Expect seismic bass frequencies and a crystal-clear midrange, clean or distorted.

A 3-way blade pickup switch and a push-pull coil-tap vastly expands your tonal palette. What first appears to be a simple HH configuration suddenly becomes a hugely versatile instrument that'll efficiently handle whatever you throw at it. Top it off with a Graph tech black tusq XL nut and alluring black hardware across the board, and you've struck the perfect balance between versatility and attitude.
