Chapman ML3 Pro Modern in Satin Lunar
The ML3 Pro is a T-shape guitar with loads of traditional, vintage mojo but with a modern edge. The ebony fretboard provides that wonderful snappy tone and the guitars been designed to be gigged and played just about anywhere and everywhere.
The pickups on-board are 2 Chapman Madrigal 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.
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.
History of the Chapman Guitars
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 Originally made in China & sold as a limited edition one of run in matt black, the ML-1 sold out within 2-3 months & left 100s of fans disappointed that they didn't get one.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 ML3 Pro
The powerful simplicity and less-is-more visual signature of the ML3 Pro Modern, belies its vast tonal palette. Entirely satin in finish, with a lightweight mahogany neck and body, the ML3 Pro Modern is sleek, smooth and raw, presenting sonic landscapes of possibility.
Nothing is in your way as a player, unbridled creativity is given free rein by the stealthily-carved, C profile, set-through neck and 24 jumbo stainless steel frets, stuck true into the alluringly dark, ebony fretboard with rolled edges.
Available in Dark Cherry and Lunar, the ML3 Pro Modern is an accurate and effortless addition to your arsenal.
