I’m truly excited to bring out my new ML3 BEA Standard models with Chapman Guitars.
The thing I love most about my signature guitars is the solidity and versatility of them, so the main priority designing these models was to make sure nothing was compromised, especially for touring and recording.
I decided to simplify things and create 2 hardtail models; one baritone and one 25.5”. As much as I wanted to keep the woods as close as possible to my original signature ML3 models, change is always good, thus the addition of new baked maple necks! Visually, I thought I would bring back the look of the original ML3 prototypes, after they received so much love online.
Overall, I couldn’t be happier with how these have turned out; the new V2 henchman pickups sounds incredible, they look sick and play so well!
I can’t wait to take these on tour!
