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!

Trusted Customer19th Mar 2024

Was very underwhelming and hadn’t been set up well. Pickups did not sound as I had hoped for an HSS config, the fret edges had not been filed down despite the accompanying card saying ‘passed’. The pickup selector switch was quite flimsy and the tuning was a nightmare, especially with the floating trem system. Have returned the item for a refund.

Couldn't decide which colour to get. Wished for both Red or Blue. Decided on Blue as it's nearest to my favourite colour - Midnight Blue.
