Manufacturer's ID: ML3SHP-MOD-OS
What we say:
The ML3 PRO Semi-Hollow expands on the range’s ’T-style’ guitars to offer a contemporary instrument with a ‘thinline’ influence.
This Chapman ML3 is an intriguing and largely successful mix of the traditional with the contemporary. F-hole guitars are often strictly saved for relatively low-powered, classically styled guitars, not modern Rock machines like this! We admire the boldness and are glad to say it works really well aesthetically as well as practically.
The top of the guitar, capped with Flame Maple, is lightly carved, with the f-hole and ‘spoon cut’ at the lower horn. The back is contoured for the stomach and allows displays this guitar’s upmarket set neck made of Roasted Maple.
The neck itself features two full octaves’ worth of stainless steel frets on a 13.7” radius fingerboard. There is real quality to this neck: it feels immediately familiar and highly playable. As with most Chapman guitars, this ML3 semi-hollow features a reverse headstock. Hipshot tuners provide even more quality!
A set of Chapman’s own ‘Madrigal’ humbuckers are used here for modern-sounding versatility. These pickups can run pretty hot but there are a range of coil split options within the 5-way blade selector that bring out more chimey, single coil tones. A hard tail bridge provides through body stringing, bringing more sustain and resonance to what is already an excellent sounding guitar.
Chapman have really hit on something here: it isn’t just retro fans who want an F-hole in their electric guitars! By combining this with an otherwise unapologetically modern guitar, Chapman have something quite unique and very appealing in the shape of this ML3 Pro Semi-Hollow. This guitar is available here in Obsidian Burst.
