Chapman V2 ML1 Modern Baritone Standard in Mallow Purple/Natural

New Factory, Improved Pickups - Same Killer Design!

Description

The Chapman ML1 Modern Baritone Standard is a dual-humbucker guitar that combines classic design with crushing modern tones. A trusted tonewood mix, punchy pickups and comfortable playability makes the ML1 Modern Baritone an outstanding addition to the Chapman Guitars catalogue. Better still, the V2 models are made in a new factory - boasting baked tonewoods for improved resonance and durability, rolled fretboard edges and US-made pickup magnets. They're onto a winner...

Chapman Guitars - Brand New V2 Range for 2019!

New & Improved Pickups

All V2 Chapman instruments are equipped with brand new pickups made in-house in their new factory. Unlike their previous pickup designs, these feature high-quality magnets sourced from the US. Many guitar pickups use generic magnets, the same that you might find in cars or household appliances. These, however, are tailor-made for use in guitars! If you thought the previous humbuckers and single coils sounded great, you’ll love the fresh tone of these precisely-wound models.

Chapman has also re-voiced the pickups to provide crisper articulation, a more pronounced mid-range and smoother low and high-end frequencies. You’re guaranteed to get studio sound quality and brilliant definition in live use; cutting through the mix effortlessly!

Body & Neck

Chapman have opted for a combination of classic tonewoods for the V2 ML1 Modern Baritone's body - Alder with a stunning Ash veneer top. These materials are synonymous with Fender guitars, and have been used ever since the release of their very first solid-bodies back in the '50s. Offering scooped yet crystal-clear mids and rich, resonating sustain; these woods provide real tonal character.

For the neck, Chapman has opted for smooth satin-finished Maple, with a bolt-on configuration featuring a velute. This reinforcement, combined with a dual-action truss rod, means sturdy tuning stability and excellent proficiency with drop-tuning. The slippery satin finish and familiar C-shaped neck means that you'll feel right at home - whatever your style!

Hardware & Electronics

Chapman have loaded the V2 ML1 Modern Baritone Standard with two Sonorous Zero humbuckers; power, clarity and punchy mids perfectly complement the tonewood cocktail, resulting in firm, chunky baritone sounds. Expect seismic bass frequencies and a crystal-clear mid-range, clean or distorted.

A 3-way blade 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 a Graph Tech Tusq XL nut and alluring black hardware across the board, and you've struck the perfect balance between versatility and attitude.
