Chapman Guitars ML3 BEA Baritone | Irithyll Burst
The ML3BEA Baritone in Irithyll Burst is a new take on my baritone guitar. I wanted to create a darker, moodier and heavier sounding guitar, using solid Hipshot hardware, and a stunning exotic Mapa Burl top.
Designed to be a versatile baritone instrument, the ML3BEA ITB is a 28” scale guitar, allowing to tune much lower, or use lighter strings and keep use it as a low tuned lead instrument.
The finish (Irithyll Burst), is inspired by From Softwares's Dark Souls 3 referencing ‘Irithyll Of The Boreal Valley's dark and icy night skies, with darkness hidden deep within, complemented by the guitar's detailed top.
Housing my signature Bare Knuckle SILO pickup in the bridge, and a Seymour Duncan Little ‘59 in the neck hooked up to the 5-way super switch. The tonal variety in this guitar is huge!
For me, I feel the ML3BEA guitars have reached their final form. I hope you enjoy playing them as much as I do!
