Michael Batio MAB4 - Gauntlet

MAB is one of the most respected shredders around. His self-taught technique and command of scales is astounding. With the Dean Michael Angelo Batio MAB4 Gauntlet Electric Guitar, Michael has combined all of the ingredients necessary to help you achieve your full shredding potential with style. The MAB4 Gauntlet features a proven body shape made of resonant basswood. The Batio designed super-fast bolt-on maple neck has a 25-1/2" scale and rosewood fingerboard for increased sustain, with classic pearl block inlays easy fingering. Three DMT pickups are wired in an HSH pattern for a maximum variety of single and dual-coil sounds. The all-black hardware includes Grover tuners and a Floyd Rose tremolo bridge to lock in your intonation no matter how far you dive.
