Chapman Ghost Fret Pro Series in Dusk
The Ghost Fret Pro is here! Designed by Chapman Guitar owner and Dorje guitarist Rob Chapman the Ghost fret is an incredible axe made for sweet shredding metal licks. Based on a classic EX style guitar the Ghost Fret has an massive sound when pushed through a high gain rig with smooth playing action.
The pickups on-board are 2 Chapman Primordial Humbuckers which were designed to give you a powerful, but clear sound. They've got loads of attack and a dense mid-range and low-end to give you booming riffs and thick lead sounds. With a 3 way toggle switch.
They can be used for every style of music from blues to classic rock to metal and beyond, but they definitely want to be turned UP!
The Chapman Pro series guitars have all got rolled fretboard edges which involves smoothing out any fret edges so that the instrument feels 'played in' even when it's brand new. This process makes the neck much more comfortable to hold and play.
Includes Hard Case
The new Chapman Pro guitars all include a premium quality deluxe hard case. Please note the hard case is not currently for sale separately.
Back in 2009 Rob Chapman came up with the idea of collaboratively designing a guitar with his YouTube fans – over 5000 fans took part in a series of votes to decide on body style, neck profile, headstock shape, pickups and colours, and the original ML-1 was born. Originally made in China & sold as a limited edition one of run in matt black, the ML-1 sold out within 2-3 months & left 100s of fans disappointed that they didn't get one. In 2010 Rob underwent the same process to design the ML-2 – a single cut, double humbucker guitar that again sold out within 2-3 weeks of arrival. In 2012 Rob decided to take the Chapman guitar brand up market, and moved the production to Korea.
The new factory introduced some new features, improved the build quality, and added new colours to the original ML designs. At the NAMM 2017 it was announced that the Chapman range would be split into 2. The Pro series are still built at the same factory in South Korea with a higher spec than before taking these instruments to new heights. And the Standard series guitars are built in Indonesia retaining the same ethos of the current Chapman range, though more affordable.
An easy way to tell the difference between the ranges is by looking at the fretboard. The standard range has got fretboard marker inlays along the fretboard, while the pro series does not.
Here's what Chapman say about the Ghost Fret Pro
The Chapman Ghost Fret Pro will haunt you in the soul until you give in to its seductive feel and ethereal tones. Whether you choose the Dusk or Lunar finish on the thick, carved, maple cap, you'll be possessed by the deep wooden flame surrounding the searing, Alnico 5 Primordial humbuckers like a stygian forest.
