Design features such as a lightweight mahogany body, an upper access spoon cut and updated specially-voiced Chapman Sonorous Zerø pickups really show an attention to detail worthy of even the most discerning of players. Apologies to your neighbours and our utmost respect.


This Flame Maple neck is smoking hot. Chapman’s preferred C-shaped neck carve offers style and comfort, making this guitar one for the discerning player. A smooth satin finish enhances the neck’s playability even further, offering an ultra-fast surface to shred upon!

Chapman’s ML1 Modern’s thin lightweight Mahogany body and Flame Maple veneer is an exquisite blend of form and function and is perfect for the cross-genre musician. It’s ergonomically contoured but the shape and build also provides a balanced tonal foundation.

Equipped with a Chapman Sonorous Zero humbucker, the tonal breadth of the Chapman ML1 Modern means you can achieve both punchy tones and saturated sounds on high gain amp settings. Nice.
