The ML3 Traditional is a T-shaped rock guitar that combines classic tones with modern design and playability. Perfectly suited to anything from Texas Blues to modern metal, this versatile instrument offers a distinct sound, beautiful organic aesthetics and a price tag that won't break the bank! 

Chapman Guitars ML3 Traditional

Body & Neck

A Mahogany body has been combined with a Flamed Maple veneer for an altered take on the T-style formula. The mahogany ensures a rich sustain that you wouldn't normally expect from this kind of instrument, complemeneted by subtle snappy Maple overtones. 

The neck uses Maple again, which is slightly more familiar territory; a satin finish and a C-shape profile ensures a comfortable playability and twang by the bucketload. As with most of Chapman's guitars, a rolled fretboard and a volute near the headstock adds to the sturdiness and comfort-factor - you can't go wrong at this price point.

Hardware & Electronics

Loaded with 2 x Chapman Mojo Hand Zero single coils, the tonewood combination transforms into a wholly applicable sound that'll fit neatly into any musical circumstance. Alnico V magnets offer a hotter, more 'unified' sound than other magnets, making them perfect for crispy cleans and distorted chords alike. 

Other notable appointments include a Graph Tech tusq nut, a dual-action truss rod and subtle contours - all of which point to an instrument with features that far outweigh its humble price tag.
