“I’m truly excited to bring out my new ML3 BEA Standard models with Chapman Guitars. The thing I love most about my signature guitars is the solidity and versatility of them, so the main priority designing these models was to make sure nothing was compromised, especially for touring and recording. I decided to simplify things and create 2 hardtail models; one baritone and one 25.5”. As much as I wanted to keep the woods as close as possible to my original signature ML3 models, change is always good, thus the addition of new baked maple necks! Visually, I thought I would bring back the look of the original ML3 prototypes, after they received so much love online. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with how these have turned out; the new V2 henchman pickups sounds incredible, they look sick and play so well! I can’t wait to take these on tour!” Rabea Massaad

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</a
