But it’s not all just about looks, this stripped-back stealth machine is equipped with a Macassar Ebony fretboard and perfectly rolled edges, whilst at the core of this beast a pair of powerful Ceramic Chapman Sonorous Zerø humbuckers will deliver every blow clearly. If you’re after simplicity of form delivered in an understated underdog then look no further than the ML1 Modern Standard.
Maple and Ebony, Perfection
