As a fan of Rob Chapman, I was very keen to get my hands on one of the various models that Chapman Guitars that Dear Mr Chapman create.
The ML1 is absolutely amazing, it's a tone machine. Great for Blues, Rock, Metal and beyond. It's a grand guitar worth a space on any guitarist's rack.
I won this guitar on the Chapman Guitars tour of the East Coast of the U.S., and I can honestly say that it feels almost as awesome as my multi-thousand dollar PRS. It sounds and plays way better than my Gibson. It's earned it's keep in my collection and it'll be one of my main axes for the rest of my life, as will my PRS!!
I found out about these guitars through Rob Chapman's YouTube channel. When I first saw Rob use this on his channel I thought they sounded amazing. I was expecting the guitar to have a high price, but when I saw the price I knew i had to get one. I ordered mine though RiffCity and when this bad boy arrived i was blown away by the quality. The guitar is mahogany body with a maple neck and an ebony fret-board. It comes stock with 2 Chapman single-coil pickups and 1 Chapman "Guitarnivore" humbucker in the bridge. (has coil tapping function). The guitar also comes with a Wilkinson trem and Grover tuners. Let me just tell you right now, this thing is a beast. It covers every genre imaginable and excels in hard rock. This is my #1 guitar and I don't think that will be changing anytime soon.
Shoutout to Chappers and everyone at Chapman Guitars!
Chapman guitars are very nice. I've got the ML1 in Antique Burst. The only two major problems that I've found with my ML1 is that the pickups don't have the right pots and the body of the guitar doesn't resonate freely. Other than that, a superb instrument.
