Manufacturer's ID: ML3P-MOD-LNR

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 Korea, are contemporary takes on classic designs, all made with performance as a priority.

This ML3 forms part of the Chapman Pro Series. The Pro Series all feature through-neck construction for resonance and sustain, not to mention strength. The fretboards are made of Ebony and have rolled edges for an instantly comfortable feel. Other features differ from model to model but all come with a Chapman Pro Hard Case.

These are pro-level guitars with excellent hardware and extremely high quality control standards in the construction. Gigging professionals can rely on a Chapman Pro Series guitar to deliver the goods every time.

The ML3 PRO borrows the classic ’T-style’ outline and specs it up to rock hard. The contemporary T-style is a very popular choice these days with everyone from Muse’s Matt Bellamy to Slipknot’s Jim Root having their own turbocharged versions out there. This Chapman PRO series ML3 brings a lot of game to the party. Let’s look a little further.

Immediately distinguishing this from the multitudes is the level of contouring on the body: this is no mere ‘slab’! The Mahogany body has an arched carve on the top and a belly carve on the back as well as scoops on the cutaway to provide extremely easy upper fret access to those double octave stainless steel frets. The Satin Lunar finish promotes a less-is-more functionality that works well with the ML3’s contoured and reverse-headstocked look.

The through-neck is also Mahogany so you can count on this having huge amounts of sustain and thick midrange. This is affirmed on plugging in: this guitar has a very ‘alive’ sound with lots of output and aggressive attack from the Chapman Madrigal humbuckers. These are perfect for modern styles that require precision and heat but thankfully, there is more at play here: a coil tap located in the 5 way selector allows a selection of pristine sounding single coil tones too! We would describe these as modern single coil tones: they are not vintage sounding but they are beautifully clean and chimey, providing a real contrast to the heavier humbucker sounds.

Despite its modern leanings, this is a versatile guitar and is useful for playing lots of styles. If you are looking for a contemporary T-Style, not much has this level of quality at the price.
