Chapman ML1 Hybrid Electric Guitar

No longer available at zZounds
With a roasted maple neck, jumbo frets, and a C-shaped neck profile, this Chapman ML1 Hybrid is a breeze to play, and HSS pickups make it tonally versatile.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain
Flamed maple top Premium wood grain with bright, projecting tone
Roasted maple neck Bright tone, full sustain and strength
Chapman 2-point tremolo Smooth action; ultra-stable tuning

This HSS configured tonal monster is not just business at the neck and party at the bridge! Paying homage to those who modified traditional single-coil-equipped instruments back in the 80's, the ML1 Hybrid is a powerful, yet flexible machine combining the refined and clear tones of the Chapman "Venus Witch" zero single coils with the heroic power punch of the ceramic Chapman Sonorous Zero.

With a modern recessed bolt on construction, coupled with a roasted maple neck and fingerboard, the ML1 Hybrid is perfectly formed and ergonomically designed for comfort and playability.

Rolled fingerboard edges, great pickups, level frets, roasted maple neck, aesthetically and physically perfect. I’m putting this guitar up against anything Fender or Gibson is offering. Was never interested in Chapman until I got this one on a trade for a bass and I’m very surprised at the overall quality and playability of this instrument. You can play the blues to Van Halen with this thing and the sound is amazing.
