Product Description

In 2020, Chapman Guitars celebrated their 10th anniversary with the ML1 Pro X Anniversary model. To continue this legacy, the "X range" has now be introduced to the popular Standard Series in the form of the new ML1 X Standard.

The ML1 X standard is a powerful HSS electric guitar that combines classic S-type design with contemporary flair! Beautifully crafted from classic tonewoods including Maple, Mahogany and Ash, the ML1 X seamlessly blends flexibility, playability and tone. A set of proprietary Alnico 5 pickups offers a wealth of single coil and humbucker tones, striking the perfect balance of versatility and attitude.

Top it off with a rolled-edge Macassar Ebony fingerboard, 22 jumbo frets, a Graph Tech TUSQ nut, and rock solid hardware across the board, and you've really got something special!
