Description

"I feel is the pinnacle of what I could design with Chapman guitars. I wanted to create a beautiful workhorse guitar, boasting the highest spec parts, and a stunning exotic wood top. Designed to be a lead focused instrument, the ML3 BEA Cartus Burst is equipped with the Schaller Vintage floating Tremolo, giving a smooth action for silky leads passes. But it can also be set back to the body for a Hardtail style configuration. The finish, inspired by From Software's Dark Souls 3 references the Catacombs of Carthus, filled with fire, sand and stone, teamed with gold hardware give this guitar an infinitely detailed look. Housing my signature Bare Knuckle SILO pickup in the bridge, and a Seymour Duncan Little ‘59 in the neck hooked up to the 5-way super switch. The tonal variety in this guitar is huge! For me, I feel the ML3 BEA guitars have reached their final form. I hope you enjoy playing them as much as I do!" - Rabea Massaad

Features

Roasted Birdseye Maple Neck

Chapman Guitars are renowned for having great neck profiles and the ML3 Pro BEA is no exception.  The roasted maple neck reduces the risk of warping and helps keep the guitar in premium condition. It is also fitted with carbon fibre rods to give a much higher level of stability. So not only does it look great, it’s resilient too.

Premium Body Construction

The structural stability of Alder wood fundamentally underpins the strength and beauty of this ‘workhorse guitar’ in line with Rabea’s creative vision. The solid Mapa Burl top also gives the guitar a unique character full of mystery.  With it’s flat top, ergonomically contoured arm and tummy cuts, lower horn and neck transition, this guitar is designed to fit you.

Bare Knuckle and Seymour Duncan Pickups

Boasting the killer combination of a Rabea Massaad signature Bare Knuckle SILO humbucker in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan Little ‘59 in the neck position, the tonal breadth of the Chapman ML3 Pro BEA is something particularly special. Via it’s unique 5-way switching options, the tonal palette is broad with a resonance that you can feel.
