What we say:

At A Glance:

The Chapman Standard Series ML1 Modern Abyss, a true modern player. Coming in at an affordable price this Chapman is not only packed with premium features, it comes finished in a stunning purple to blue fade finish.

Features We Love:

Premium Fret Edge Treatment

Equipped with an already gorgeous Macassar Ebony Fretboard, Chapman have gone all out to make this feel like a guitar you've been playing for years. With rolled fretboard edges it gives this guitar a very worn in feel, so you can pick up and play with ease from the first chord.

Chapman Sonorous Zerø Pickups

Specially voiced for these guitars, Chapman Guitars own brand of pickups give a perfect sound for modern styles. They're not without their versatility though with a 3 way toggle switch and a push pull knob for coil splitting. The Chapman Sonorous pickups are perfect for the modern guitarist.

Quality Tonewoods

Even at this price Chapman have crafted these guitars with a great selection of woods. A lightweight Mahogany body and Maple neck start of the very classic tone recipe. Mahogany is know for it's rich and raunchy midrange, while the bolt on Maple neck adds plenty of snap and clarity. The neck also features a Macassar Ebony Fingerboard, a species of Ebony known for it's great colour variation. To bring it all together, there is a gorgeous flame maple veneer which Chapman have finished in their "Modern Abyss" tones.
