Price/Quality

Laug, 15.02.2018
This guitar is interesting to say the least. On the one hand there's this huge fan base (around Rob Chapman) that irrevocably loves his guitars. Chapman guitars receive praise beyond hell or heaven, to the point of saturation, resulting in every hint of criticism being smothered. On the other hand there are a few dissonant voices on Youtube claiming that this guitar is not that special.

That's why I have took to writing this review: what is the truth? Should you irrevocably love Chapman guitars?

The ML3 is a standard series, which, at a reasonable low prices offers distinct and well made quality. There are mutiple videos online that show you how much Chapman caters to the needs of their customers. And as a result, this guitar is really fluent to use. Easily playable. The body (and its indents) feel really well built. The neck is small, but that goes for all telecaster models. Frets are as they should be. Through body strings. 6 in line tuners on the right side, giving you that Jimi Hendrix feel.

The pick ups (Chapman) are good. Not bad, not exceptional. Clears are very bright. Lows are defined. Mingled together into my Peavey 6505+ I am amazed how pronounced this guitar is.

For this price range, however, Chapman had to cut some costs somewhere. For example: the headstock is of poor quality and the custom made tuning pegs tend to loosen up after some time (not much, a quick tuning and your ready to go).

Conclusion: it's a good guitar for its price. Especially when compared to other Telecaster models in its price range, this Chapman really shines.

If you are looking for a high end guitar, that plays and feels like walking on sunshine, I would recommend looking into the Pro models. However, for me, this guitar really delivers.

In short: buy this guitar if you want a well made telecaster that outshines the Fender squiers (in build)

Should have sent it back

Tyle, 01.01.2018
Very comfortable to play but has a lot of issues.
Plugged it in and it immediately started making alot of humming buzzing noises.
The edges of the fret metal strips are very sharp and need to be filed down.
The second time I changed the strings the nut came off and now the sharp e-string sounds like crap.
At this point I feel like I should have taken my friends advice and send it back.
