Product Description

The Chapman ML1 Modern Standard is a powerful dual-humbucker electric guitar that combines classic S-type design with contemporary flair! This particular ML1 comes equipped with a pair of red-hot Chapman Sonorous Zerø humbuckers, and also boasts a stunning satin finish for an understated yet elegant aesthetic.

Top it off with an exclusive Goldtop finish, and you've got a cutting-edge performance instrument that oozes vintage class at the same time. 

Key Features

  • Limited Edition Gold Top Finish — A striking gold sparkle finish gives this modern performance instrument a retro edge that’ll turn heads.
  • Bolt-On Construction with Recessed Neck Joint — Yields a snappy tone for an immediate note response, with recessed heel joint enabling unrestricted upper-fret access.
  • Rolled-Edge Macassar Ebony Fingerboard — A luxurious and silky material with a stunning grain; enhanced with rolled edges for a smooth, played-in feel.
  • Chapman Sonorous Zerø Humbucker Pickups — High-output humbuckers deliver immense power and clarity with plenty of punchy mid-range. Expect soaring sustain and crystal-clear highs, whether clean or distorted!
  • 3-Position Pickup Switch & Coil Split — Yields 6 different sounds in total for superb tonal versatility. Access 3 full humbucking tones as standard via the pickup switch, and engage the push-pull tone knob to split their coils for 3 additional single-coil sounds.
  • String-Through-Body Hardtail Bridge — Enhances sustain, with individual saddles allowing for precise action and intonation settings.
