Product Description

The Chapman ML3 Thinline Pro Classic electric guitar delivers hot T-type "twang" and pronounced P90 punch, all from one package. While classic in design with its T-style body shape, elegant F-hole and traditional bridge with brass saddles, the ML3 Thinline is otherwise a somewhat modern affair — boasting a recessed bolt-on Maple neck for effortless access to the higher register, a smooth rolled-edge fingerboard with 22 narrow tall frets, a slippery Graph Tech nut for stellar tuning stability, and a set of high-quality Hipshot Grip-Lock tuners that allow for lightning-fast string changes.

Throw in the flexible 4-way pickup switching too, and the ML3 Thinline Pro Classic can easily become your number 1 workhorse for the studio and the stage. It's a fantastic old-meets-new axe that'll keep you inspired for many years to come!

Key Features

  • Mahogany Body with Maple Top — The Mahogany back provides a deep and sustain-rich sound, which comes partnered with a Maple top that brings out plenty of top-end sparkle. The semi-hollow construction also gives the instrument a stunningly-resonant "airiness".
  • Recessed Bolt-On Construction — Ergonomic design offers the feel of a set-through neck, with the practicality and "snap" of a bolt-on. The neck comes enhanced with a silky satin finish too, allowing for fast playability!
  • Seymour Duncan USA Pickups — The Quarter Pound bridge pickup is a high-output design that promises humbucker-level punch and saturation in a true single-coil package, while the neck P90 gives you a fat yet crystal-clear voice that pairs up nicely with the bridge pickup.
  • 4-Way Pickup Switching — Yields four tones in total: bridge pickup, bridge and neck pickups (wired in series), bridge and neck pickups (wired in parallel), and the neck pickup.
  • Hipshot Grip-Lock Tuners — Ingenious locking mechanism makes restringing easier and means less string winds are required around the tuning posts; resulting in better tuning stability.
  • Graph Tech TUSQ XL Nut — Low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips.

Mr Brendan Hutchinson1st Feb 2024

Looks absolutely stunning and plays even better. The neck just feels beautiful, the fret work is fantastic, and the seymour duncans allow it to get pretty high gain for a semi-hollow tele. This has been my first experience with a chapman and I was not sure what to expect, but I am now trying hard to convince myself not to get another!
