    Comments about Chapman ML3 Pro Traditional Electric Guitar:

    I've been following Chapman Guitars for a while but was never really able to pull the trigger on getting one. But now that Guitar Center started carrying them, I decided to take a chance because of their return policy. Let me tell you this: I will NOT be returning it. I love everything about this guitar. Everything you see and read about how great this guitar is totally on point. It feels great right out of the box. It's extremely light and sounds awesome. The playability is at least on par if not better than other more expensive guitars I own or have played. Highly recommend to anyone on who is still on the fence about buying one. The quality is top notch. Oh yeah and the case it comes with is also very nice.

    Comments about Chapman ML3 Pro Traditional Electric Guitar:

    I got the guitar because I was very excited about Chapman being offered by GC but when it was delivered I was pretty bummed by the finish. The guitars pictures are beautiful with the grain and the fade, but the guitar I got was pretty much just a black guitar. There was a SMALL gray patch between pick ups and the wood grain was different, but it was a satin finish black guitar. Will I order again and try them out in the future? Definitely, but I am going to wait until the QC issues get sorted out with GC making such huge purchase orderes that the factory is slammed and not paying attention to the details.
