Description

At first glance your wallet may be forgiven for thinking that the ML3 Modern is the perfect back-up guitar. But, after a few chords and licks your hands will be telling you otherwise. With its rolled edges and ebony fretboard the C-shaped satin maple neck immediately stands out as a player's guitar and puts to shame many other guitars at a higher price point. If drop tuning is your thing, you can rest assured that the self-lubricating, Graph Tech Black TUSQ nut, Chapman Classic closed 18:1 tuners and Chapman hard tail bridge will work as a team, delivering all the tuning stability and harmonic sustain you need for the studio or live. Powered by the new and improved Chapman Sonorous Zerø pickups, your ML3 Modern is the perfect sonic unity of great materials such as maple, ebony and mahogany coupled with ultra attention to detail in design features like the front and rear spoon cuts and natural edge finish.

This special edition of the ML3 Modern Standard, powered by a USA Seymour Duncan Pegasus in the bridge and a Sentient in the Neck. The Poplar Burl is accentuated by the high gloss Storm Burst finish above a Mahogany body, complimented by a Macassar Ebony fretboard over a maple neck. There’s a storm brewing….
