Product Description

The ML2 Standard is Chapman's take on the iconic single-cut guitar design, leaving no stone unturned in its quest for tonal glory — now featuring a modified body shape with a sleek, modern vibe that's designed to offer maximum comfort for improved playability. This model comes adorned with an exclusive Goldtop finish, adding a touch of vintage class to this cutting-edge instrument.

Equipped with a pair of Chapman's proprietary Stentorian Zero pickups, a push/pull coil-split tone knob, a rolled-edge Macassar Ebony fingerboard, 24 jumbo frets, a Graph Tech TUSQ nut, and stealthy black hardware and a smooth satin finish across the board — you've struck the perfect balance between versatility and attitude!

Key Features

  • Limited Edition Gold Top Finish — A striking gold sparkle finish gives this modern performance instrument a retro edge that’ll turn heads.
  • Satin-Finished Set Maple "C" Neck — Traditional neck timber adds brightness into the sonic mix; boasting a comfortable "C" profile and a satin finish for ultra-fast playability. Contoured heel enables 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 'Stentorian Zero' Humbuckers — Designed as a more contemporary take on PAF-inspired pickups; using Alnico V magnets for hotter output and more "unified" chord sounds.
  • 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 toggle switch, and engage the push/pull master tone knob to split their coils for 3 additional single-coil sounds.
  • 'Pennant' Headstock Design — Focusing on tuning stability and playability, Chapman have employed a "satisfyingly straight string angle" via their new 'Pennant' headstock design; bringing a balance of tension across the strings.

Slight pinging on the open G string, but other than that, plays well and sounds excellent

Mr Nick James28th Feb 2024

Great instrument. Much more a 'modern' sound than 'traditional'. Good range of tones available, lovely feeling neck and looks fabulous.
