Product Description

The ML2 Standard is back! Chapman's take on the iconic single-cut guitar design leaves 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.

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

  • Mahogany Body — Delivers a deep and sustain-rich sound; giving the pickups a broader and more harmonically-exciting tone.
  • 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.
  • 24 Jumbo Frets — Large size offers a controllable feel under the fingers, for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
  • 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.
  • String-Through-Body Hardtail Bridge — Enhances sustain, with individual saddles allowing for precise action and intonation settings.
  • Graph Tech TUSQ XL Nut — Low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips.

Supposed to have been inspected via Anderton, the finish around the quilt top to the edge poor finish. Quality of chapman guitars at the lower end not as good as of several years ago.
