Description

"The 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 ML3 BEA 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 Software'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!" - Rabea Massaad.

Features

Wenge Neck

The classic, comfortable C-Shaped neck is fitted with carbon fibre rods to give it a high level of stability and a solid feel.  A satin finish makes you want to touch it, pick up and play it and the rolled fretboard edges provide a smooth sliding grip.  The 711mm (~28″) scale length means you can tune it lower for that throaty, moody sound.

Premium Body Construction

It’s hard to believe you can get a heavier sound out of this lightweight Alder wood body, but the Poplar Burl top creates a sense of substance in the tonal foundation of this guitar that has to be played to be believed. Also, the ergonomics of this guitar have been carefully considered to give you a satisfying playing experience.

Bare Knuckle and Seymour Duncan Pickups

The distinctive Rabea Massaad signature Bare Knuckle SILO humbucker in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan Little ‘59 in the neck position – coupled with a unique 5-way switching option –  creates a substantial  tonal breadth and depth in this guitar that just sounds and feels rich.
