    Product Description

    Chapman's take on the classic T-style reaches new heights with this iteration of the ML3 Traditional! Featuring Chapman's "Angry Mule" P90 in the neck and a "Vintage Tone" single-coil in the bridge — the ML3 Traditional offers fat yet versatile T-type tones with plenty of iconic "spank".

    As part of Chapman's accessible Standard Series, the ML3 Traditional provides premium performance at an affordable price-point. With contemporary features that include rolled fingerboard edges, a Graph Tech TUSQ nut, jumbo frets and a recessed heel joint — this instrument can become your 'number 1' workhorse!

    Key Features

    • Lightweight Mahogany Body — Delivers a deep and sustain-rich sound; giving the pickups a broader tone. Comes adorned with a stunning Ash veneer top.
    • Satin-Finished Maple Neck — Popular neck timber adds brightness into the sonic mix; boasting a comfortable "C" profile and a satin finish for ultra-fast playability.
    • Rolled-Edge Fingerboard — Provides a smooth, played-in feel. No sharp fret ends here!
    • 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.
    • 22 Jumbo Frets — Large size offers a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
    • Chapman Vintage Tone/Angry Mule Pickups — Single-coil/P90 combination gives you a mixture of crisp and punchy tones. Alnico 5 magnets yield a powerful yet articulate character.
    • 3-Position Pickup Switch — Offers 3 sounds in total: bridge single-coil, neck P90 or a mix of the two.
