Description

"I’m truly excited to bring out my new ML3 BEA Standard models with Chapman Guitars. The thing I love most about my signature guitars is the solidity and versatility of them, so the main priority designing these models was to make sure nothing was compromised, especially for touring and recording. I decided to simplify things and create 2 hardtail models; one baritone and one 25.5”. As much as I wanted to keep the woods as close as possible to my original signature ML3 models, change is always good, thus the addition of new baked maple necks! Visually, I thought I would bring back the look of the original ML3 prototypes, after they received so much love online. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with how these have turned out; the new V2 henchman pickups sounds incredible, they look sick and play so well! I can’t wait to take these on tour!" -Rabea Massaad

Features

Roasted Maple Neck

The last thing you want on tour is a warped neck. This guitar’s roasted maple C-shaped neck is far less vulnerable to warping in changeable climates, making it easy to maintain and tune on your travels. The rolled edge Macassar Ebony fretboard is pretty sexy too.

Premium Body Construction

We use Alder wood for guitar bodies, because it is a light and stable wood, resilient for travelling and beautiful to play. The flamed maple veneer on this guitar is kick-ass and concert ready and these coupled with the roasted maple neck provides a solid tonal foundation.

V2 Chapman Henchman Pickups

Powered by the new and improved Chapman Henchman pickups, the ML3 Standard BEA is the perfect sonic unity with the rest of the instrument.
