Rob Scallon is an online phenomenon; he's amassed an audience of 500,000 subscribers with his metal covers, encapsulating compositions and outside-the-box techniques. To create his music he needed a guitar with plenty of range and a solid sound...enter the Chapman ML1-8 RS. Chapman's Rob Scallon signature model is also a milestone for the brand - it's their first 8-string guitar! 

Chapman Guitars - Rob Scallon Signature Series ML1 RS & ML1-8 RS

Body & Neck

One of the first things you'll notice about the ML1-8 RS is the neck-through design. Swamp Ash surrounds the colossal Mahogany neck, resulting in a tone that perfectly complements the extended range. This configuration reinforces the body and neck to compensate for the added tension, and also allows for improved resonance across the lower frequencies.

Ebony is used for the fretboard, adding an element of brightness and clarity to the mix. This also makes for smooth playability, especially thanks to the carved body and deep cutaways.

Harware & Electronics

Dual-loaded with Chapman Passive Aggressive 8-string humbuckers, the ML1-8 RS delivers full-tilt djent tones in spectacular fashion. Combined with the Swamp Ash and Mahogany tonewood combo, expect a rich low-end, a detailed midrange and just the right amount of sparkle on top for lead parts and solo performances. A 3-way blade pickup selector and push-pull coil tab option also provides you with a broad tonal palette - perfect for modern metal.

Slick black hardware completes the picture - subtle aesthetics combined with precise construction and modern design make for a wholly playable (yet undeniably lethal) instrument.
