Chapman Pro Series MLV Pro Modern Lunar
Includes Hard Case
Manufacturer's ID: MLVP-MOD-LNR
What we say:
Chapman guitars are all made with a slight bias toward modern Rock playing, but there is no guitar in their catalogue quite as overtly Hard-Rocking as the MLV Pro!
The Chapman MLV is a lean, mean ‘V’ style axe with a flame top and a locking tremolo! From Sunset Strip-era Hair Metal to contemporary shred and Djent, all this guitar wants to do is Rock!
This is undoubtedly a handsome guitar, whatever your personal taste is. The contoured Maple top, finished in Lunar looks pretty exceptional, especially on that trim ‘V’ shape body. The wealth of chrome coloured hardware adds to the effect, as does the Ebony fingerboard…it’s a looker for sure!
In terms of feel, this has that same reliable feel you’ll find on all Chapman guitars. It’s modern feeling but not madly-skinny: you’ll get lots from this C shaped neck profile! We like seeing the volute at the back of the nut where the headstock pitches back: this is a notorious weak spot for all back-angled headstocks so this extra measure is reassuring.
The pickups are Chapman’s own Stentorian humbuckers, complete with a coil split for thinner sounds. The chunk and sustain is all here, exactly as you’d want it!
Finally, the bridge is a proper Floyd Rose tremolo, the original and best for all of those swooping shrieks!
The Chapman MLV Pro really is a lead guitarist’s dream.
