Chapman Guitars upgrade the ML1 for 2013. The Chapman ML-1 is the Swiss Army Knife of guitars, combining high-powered brutal yet clear tones from the Guitarnivore humbucker, through to the crisp, woody tones from the Extreme Victory single coils. Equipped with coil splitting, this guitar can deliver a myriad of awesome sounds to suit any guitarist.

Chapman Guitars are the world’s first guitar company where all the guitars are collaboratively designed by Rob “MonkeyLord” Chapman and his 15,000 YouTube subscribers! The ML1 was launched in 2009 after several months of YouTube videos, votes and forum posts. The YouTube subscribers asked for a traditional guitar shape, with super high quality tone woods and good quality hardware. The end result was a solid mahogany electric guitar with an Ebony fret board and Wilkinson parts
