About Chapman Guitars

Chapman guitars are the brainchild of guitarist and YouTube personality Rob Chapman. His line of electric guitars have been designed with large amounts of input from the guitar community. Rob's huge fan base were given a platform to request features they'd like to see on a line of affordable electric guitars. Many of these suggestions made it through to the final designs.

Chapman guitars feature a modern take on many classic guitar shapes, mostly made with the rock and metal musician in mind. They quickly gained a strong following, with guitarists like Rob Scallon and Rabea Massaad now having their own signature models. Usually featuring own-brand or Seymour Duncan pickups, including an HSS pickup configuration, rolled fingerboard edges and Graph Tech nuts, Chapman guitars are equipped for top performance.

The Pro Series are of a very high quality and are a top choice for the professional player. The Standard Series is a more affordable option with a simpler approach, but also play very well. It is not hard to see why Chapman guitars are so popular.
