Designed by Chapman Guitars founder Rob Chapman, the Ghost fret is an formidable axe made with crushing riffage and blistering shred in mind. Combining massive sound, smooth playing action and striking aesthetics, the Ghost Fret is not for the faint-hearted.
Body & Neck
The Mahogany body is topped with a beautiful piece of Flamed Maple. This familiar combo offers a truly balanced sound, with a hefty low-end, soaring midrange and plenty of top-end clarity. A satin finish with Reveal binding perfectly complements the grain of the Flamed Maple - the result is a slick aesthetic that oozes attitude.
Unlike some of the Chapman Pro models, the Ghost Fret Pro uses a Maple neck with a neck-through configuration. This ensures a unique resonance, putting a bit more emphasis on top-end sparkle - perfect for lead playing. The Ebony fretboard features rolled edges for silky-smooth playability and a pronounced attack.
Hardware & Electronics
The Ghost Fret Pro is loaded with two Chapman Primordial Humbuckers; featuring Alnico V magnets, they offer heightened output and a dense midrange. This means plenty of sustain and power for your metal riffage and sizzling lead parts alike.
You've also got a string-through hardtail and a Graph Tech black tusq XL nut, which means your tuning is safe and sound no matter how savage your playing gets. Top it off with Hipshot grip-lock open tuners and a 3-way pickup switch with coil-tap, and you've got a professional-grade instrument that's as sharp as a razor!
