Chapman Pro Series ML3 Pro Traditional Triton

Includes Hard Case

Manufacturer's ID: ML3P-TRD-TRI

What we say:

Chapman’s ML3 Traditional model certainly takes its cue from the world’s most famous T-Style but we’d say this guitar has more of its own identity than most that go down this path.

It may be the lack of a pickguard that throws us off the scent a little; it may be the contouring on the front and back of the solid Swamp Ash body (finished here in satin Triton); whatever it may be, there is a lot of nicely thought out design work happening here and it is both refreshing to see and practical to use.

Unlike other Pro Series Chapman guitars, this ML3 Traditional foregoes the Ebony fingerboard in favour of Maple, a suitably traditional choice that supports the design brief well. It still has the high quality stainless steel frets but on a slightly more rounded 9.8” radius fingerboard.

A pair of Chapman Mojo Hand pickups are used here and supply a relatively pokey sound for single coils: the bridge unit, which is wedded to a metal bridge plate, measures 8.2k ohms, more than some PAF-style humbuckers! A simple matter of turning back the volume slightly brings you into vintage country and rock ’n’ roll mode so retro and heritage genre fans will be able to have lots of fun on here!

Extra twang and resonance come from the brass bridge saddles, another slight nod to tradition but with 6 individual saddles this time instead of the vintage style 2-strings-per-saddle choice.

Guitarists looking to get a classic T-style sound but retain a little bit of individuality should certainly get acquainted with this Chapman ML3 Pro Traditional.
