A small British guitar company with a big difference
Brought to existence in 2009 by our founder Rob Chapman, Chapman Guitars has grown exponentially over the past 8 years, guided by our core ideal of collaborative design and a team of highly-skilled musicians, engineers, designer and creatives.
As musicians, we strive to build our instruments to the highest of standards; guitars and basses that we ourselves tour with. Our aim is to create the highest quality instruments for the best value for every player - to that end we place a much higher percentage of our cost into the build of our guitars than many of our competitors. We are able to do this because we do not use a traditional business model - saving us a considerable amount of money, all of which goes back into our products.
We love sharing the journey of Chapman Guitars and routinely travel across the USA and UK to meet guitarists from all over the world.
Andertons Music Co. has formed a big part of the Chapman Guitars journey thus far, and we’re proud to sell our instruments through a retailer with such a great reputation. In fact, MD Lee Anderton has his very own signature model!
"The ML1 has just about everything going for it: weight, acoustic resonance and positive playability."
"The mid-price market is a real street fight, but the ML2 Modern more than punches above its weight."
"The ML2 Modern makes a good claim on being all things to all guitarists. With coils split or not, we love its tone."
