    The ML1 Modern Baritone is an amazing guitar, it sounds surprisingly bright even when tuned down to F# standard, I'll list some pros and cons below, however I'm trying to intentionally be a bit harsher on the review since most reviews don't do much more than gush. Pros: Fretwork is great. Stays in tune incredibly well. The pickups have so much range of tones, from super bright leads on the bridge, to full warm tones with the neck. Typically I've had to pick the warm or the bright but on this guitar I got both. Guitar looks and plays great, Its an incredible value that could have easily went for a few hundred more and still held up. Cons: The guitar comes with the nut filed for a .060-.010 when it's practically built to handle lower tunings. If Chapman had sent this guitar with a .074-.013 setup that would have been preferred. The finish leaves a bit to be desired, don't get me wrong, its clean and looks nice, but the flat top and woodgrain doesn't quite pop, and it leaves the finish looking a bit flat. As for the color, It looks quite a bit darker in person than in the photos, not quite as vibrant. Had the finish been a bit lighter, with an archtop and it would have been perfect. Overall I would definitely pick this guitar over other options, its a great guitar for an incredible value. If I could have given it a 4.5 I would have, but I feel that a 5 isn't quite warranted.
