Chapman Standard Series ML1 Midnight Sky LH V2
Manufacturer's ID: ML1LH-MOD-MDN
What we say:
Youtube legend and Dorje frontman Rob Chapman has enjoyed vast success with his ever-growing range of Chapman guitars. These quality instruments, made in Indonesia, are contemporary takes on classic designs, all made with performance as a priority.
The ML1 guitar from the Chapman Standard Series displays fantastic value for money. This well featured rock-axe has lots to recommend it and it is available here as a left-handed model.
What we have is a modern S-type with a Mahogany body topped with a veneer of gorgeous Flamed Maple and a reverse-headstock, satin finish Maple neck. The fit and finish is very clean and we like small details like the neck having a volute at the headstock for greater strength at this notoriously weak point.
The fretboard is Ebony, quite impressive at this price point! 24 Jumbo frets on a 13.7” radius provide a plentiful experience for the rock or shred player alongside fusion players and most other genres really! This Chapman handles itself well across a multitude of styles.
The two pickups are specially voiced Chapman Sonorous Zer0 humuckers, ceramic units with a usefully hot output (the bridge pickup measures 12.5k ohms of DC resistance) to allow for rocking out in many genres! The Tone knob features a push/pull coil split to thin out the humbuckers for lighter, more jangly sounds.
This left-handed ML1 Modern, available here in Midnight Sky is an impressive guitar available at an excellent price.
