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!

Rabea Massaad Signature Guitars with Chappers and The Captain!

Body & Neck

Satin finished Alder is used for the body, known for its pronounced upper midrange. 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 Paduak. Known for its weighty feel, it produces a tone that's similarly heavy - plenty of sustain and warmth, perfect for accentuating bass frequencies. Indian Ebony is used for the rolled fretboard, balancing out the tonal combination with a sparkling top-end. 

Hardware & Electronics

Rabea voiced the pickups for his signature model to make sure that the sound suited his unique playing style. The resulting Henchman humbucker (bridge) and mini-rail (neck) combination offers a brilliantly balanced tonal palette that can make the most of the extended range.

The bridge position produces razor sharp metal tones that respond brilliantly to a variety of distortions. Switch to the middle position and you're in a world of compressed twang - cleans sound simply spectacular. The neck position brings the warmth, perfect for well-rounded cleans and rich lead parts. It doesn't end there though; a 5-way switch and coil tap allows for a whole host of extra sounds - the fun never ends.

Black and chrome hardware and reveal binding polishes off this guitars classy, modern aesthetic. A Wilkinson 2-point tremolo with a brass block allows expressive vibrato without compromising tuning integrity. A Graph Tech tusq nut reinforces this with extra stability and responsive action. All in all, the ML3 BEA offers more than just modern metal mayhem - it's a perfectly precise machine that'll respond brilliantly to whatever you throw at it.
