Win! A Chapman ML1 Traditional Electric Guitar!

Chapman Guitars are one of the big success stories of modern British guitar.

Chapman ML1

The brand was originally the vision of YouTube star Rob Chapman, who had the idea to create an affordable range of guitars specifically tailored to the needs of the modern guitarist by using feedback and ideas from his huge online following.

The initial results, which appeared in 2009, were so successful that the first guitars sold out in a matter of months. In the short number of years since, the Chapman Guitars brand has gone from strength to strength, expanding the range of guitars offered to satisfy a number of different price points while continuing to refine and improve the concept of the designs.

What’s more, customer feedback is still at the heart of what Chapman does, with design aspects of new guitar runs being put up for the public vote.

The guitar we’re giving away here is the modern interpretation of that first ever Chapman crowd-designed guitar, the ML1. The ML1 Traditional is a tweaked S-type design intended to cover a wide range of styles. This ash-bodied instrument has a gloss-finished ash veneer top with contouring for player comfort and a prominent cutaway for ease of access to the maple neck, which has rolled fingerboard edges.

Pickup-wise, Chapman guitars use the company’s own-brand pickup, and the ML-1 Traditional sports a classic layout of three Venus Witch Zero single coil alnico pickups, which Chapman says can be used for every style of music from blues to classic rock to metal and beyond.
