Chapman ML3 Modern Electric Guitar

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 improved Chapman Sonorous Zero 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.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Chapman products.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
