Overview

Available in an extremely limited run, only from Guitar Center, the Chapman ML3 Pro Modern is the UK guitar-maker's second venture into semi-hollowbody guitars and a follow-up to the already hugely successful vintage version. With a dramatic obsidian burst finish and custom high-output humbucking pickups, this limited-run guitar is certain to be legendary.

Chapman ML3 Pro contoured body

Designed by guitarists, for guitarists

Chapman's crowd-sourced design process is behind this instrument. Founder Rob Chapman discovered that everywhere he went, players wanted to know when he was going to make a semi-hollow instrument, and, after using Chapman's web-based voting process, the feature set, color and electronics were chosen by excited guitarists, longing to see the result.

Based on Chapman's ML3 Pro set-neck body style, the Modern carries the same graceful lines, with Seea smooth "tummy cut" in the mahogany body and a gorgeously arched top. Chapman's Obsidian Burst finish on a maple top sets the tone for this guitar's rock edge and Chapman, already known for their finishes, was glad to comply. Aesthetically, the coverless black pickups and contrasting binding combine with the milled bridge and brass saddles to make a bold, modern statement.

Chapman ML3 Pro fingerboard and inlay

Fast and sure, with an aggressive edge

The 24-fret roasted maple neck and fingerboard feature Chapman's smooth, fast profile and rolled-edge binding for a seamless playing experience. The signature Chapman "Infinity" inlay at the 12th fret brings an extra touch of class, and the "spoon-cut" neck joint eases upper fret access. As an added touch of modern convenience, the glow-in-the-dark, Luminlay side dot markers make for ease of use in tricky stage lighting.

Loaded with custom-wound Chapman high-output humbucking pickups, the guitar is designed for heavier rock. It can easily go from a whisper to a full-throated scream, from subtlety to aggression. Plus, expect great tuning stability from the Hipshot GripLock tuners and solid, 6-saddle, thru-body-strung, hardtail bridge. The guitar also includes a premium Chapman hardshell case.
