Product Description

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. A set of proprietary Alnico 5 pickups offers a wealth of single coil and humbucker tones, striking the perfect balance of versatility and attitude.

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

Mr Mark Wiegard2nd Mar 2024

I love the color and the weight. Strapped on the guitar hangs naturally making it easy to play. Definitely designed by a guitar player for guitar players.
