About Chapman Guitars

Chapman guitars are the brainchild of Youtube personality Rob Chapman. This tasteful line of electric guitars has been made with large amounts of input from the public: Rob's huge fan base were given a platform to request features they'd like to see on a line of affordable electric guitars and many of these suggestions have made it through to the final designs.

Chapman guitars feature modern takes on many classic guitar shapes, all leaning on a heavy rock sensibility. There are singlecuts, S and T-types, 'shape' models and more, all available in several levels of increasing quality from the Standard Series to the Pro Series to the Signature Series. Quality is high on all fronts, too: even the most affordable Standard Series guitars bring features such as rolled edge fingerboards (which are either Maple or, impressively, Ebony), Ash or Mahogany bodies (certain models with genuine flamed Maple veneers), GraphTech nuts and custom made pickups! It is not hard to see why Chapman guitars are so popular.

Chapman guitars are quickly gaining a lot of significance with rock and metal players across the country.
