The first time you pick up your brand new ML1 Traditional your eyes will take in a visual feast of the stunning swamp ash body. But over time the satin finish neck, complete with rolled edges, will take on the wonderfully worn and comfortable feel of a trusted old friend.
Years from now you will be able to read the story of your work in the grain of the satin natural fretboard, gradually building up the visual heritage of your hard spent hours. Plug it in and the ML1 Traditional yields a myriad of tones from crisp, woody and clean through to soaring, powerful lead tones, all forged by your hands in the fire of the specially-voiced Chapman Venus Witch Zerø single coil pickup set and finished off with brass saddles and a brass tremolo block.
ABOUT CHAPMAN GUITARS
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. www.chapmanguitars.co.uk
