The ML3 Pro Modern is a T-style guitar that combines classic design with a modern edge. Punchy pickups, slick looks and a simple, comfortable playability make the ML3 Pro Modern a performance instrument through and through.
Body & Neck
Chapman have opted for solid Mahogany for the body, providing you with brilliant resonance and uncompromising sustain. The satin finish and contoured top ensure a classy, understated aesthetic and a comfy playing experience in equal measure.
For the neck, they've stuck with satin-finished Mahogany, with a set-neck configuration featuring a volute. This reinforcement, combined with a dual-action truss rod, means sturdy tuning stability and excellent proficiency with drop-tuning. The satin finish and familiar C-shape neck means you'll be right at home, whatever your style!
Hardware & Electronics
Chapman have loaded the ML3 Pro Modern with two Madrigal humbuckers; power, clarity, a dense midrange and a hefty low-end perfectly complements the Mahogany construction. Expect soaring sustain and a punchy modern sound, clean or distorted.
A 5-way pickup switch and a push-pull coil-tap vastly expands your tonal palette. What first appears to be a simple HH configuration suddenly becomes a hugely versatile instrument that'll efficiently handle whatever you throw at it. Top it off with Hipshot grip-lock open tuners, a Graph tech black tusq XL nut and alluring black hardware across the board, and you've struck the perfect balance between versatility and attitude.
