Chapman

Description

The Chapman ML2 electric guitar is a refined, enhanced version of the model they launched a decade ago, designed as a stripped-back take on a classic. The ML2 features a focus on tuning stability and playability, with a new pennant headstock design that brings a balance of tension across the strings. It has a satin-finished ash veneer top with a mahogany body, paired with a satin-finished maple neck and macassar ebony fingerboard with comfortable rolled edges. The ML2’s sound is powered by a duo of Chapman Stentorian Zerø Alnico 5 humbuckers, with individual volume controls, a push-pull master tone control and a 3-way pickup switch. Additional appointments include pearl inlays, Chapman Classic closed tuners and a string-through hardtail bridge.
