Chapman Ghost Fret 7 Pro (2018)

The first ever Chapman seven string arrived in the UK back in February 2014. With it’s understated, work-horse looks and deadly sonic prowess, it was a head turner and immediately sent ripples through the “shredosphere”. Four years later and with four years more experience, feedback and a whole new vote under Chapman Guitars’ belt, they are very proud to introduce the new 7-string range.

This time round they have added some highly requested, additional killer specifications, including features like neck through construction, stainless steel frets, thick AAA flamed Canadian maple tops, hip shot tuners and Chapmans own Sonorous 7 and Promordial 7 humbuckers. Available in both ML1-7 Pro Modern and for the first time Ghost Fret 7 Pro, these extended range seven string beauties from Chapman guitars are the culmination of the blood sweat and dreams of thousands of guitarists all around the world.


Grip-Lock Open Guitar Tuners by Hipshot take the chore out of string changes and increase your tuning stability at the same time. Instead of your old, time consuming string changing ritual, simply pull the string through the hole and tighten the thumbwheel. A small pin inside the string post will grip your string and lock it in place for worry free tuning!

Chapman Guitars is a small British guitar company with a big difference. Brought to existence in June 2009 by our founder Rob Chapman, Chapman Guitars has grown exponentially over the past 8 years, guided by our core ideal of collaborative design and a team of highly skilled musicians, engineers, designers and creatives. As musicians we strive to build our instruments to the highest standard, guitars and basses that we ourselves routinely record and tour with. Our aim is to create the highest quality instruments for the best value – to that end we place a much higher percentage of our cost into the build of our guitars than many of our competitors. We are able to do this because we do not use a traditional distribution business model – saving us a considerable amount of money, all of which goes back into the guitars.
