Comments about Chapman ML3 Modern Electric Guitar:

This guitar is one of the best feeling guitars and the price is so much lower than most guitars. It's also a great platform for modification. The pickups seem to not have that punch and they have like an empty body but i'm not too upset about this because I rarely leave stock pickups on a guitar if they're under a grand. I also can't complain too much about the pickups because they're so much better than most guitars at this price point. I would buy if you can!

    Comments about Chapman ML3 Modern Electric Guitar:

    I went to GC because I saw an ad on youtube saying Chapman were in stock, so I went to my local GC (Atlanta) to see whats up. They only had the ML3 so I immediately went for it. It feels ridiculously stupid good. Honestly I have not had so much fun picking up a guitar and playing. I felt so much more relaxed and comfortable playing a Chapman guitar; it made playing fast so much easier. I don't know if its because of the neck or the way my picking-hand rests on the strings/body, or both. It just felt so right and natural. I highly encourage you to try one for yourself! I have to go back to see if my experience is the same. If so I'm buying one as soon as I have the money (which isn't a lot; they're cheap)!
