Unique LP

17.12.2016
After owning this guitar for almost a year, using it in studio and stage environments, my experience with my Chapman ML-2 has been a mostly positive experience.

Firstly, the guitar is nothing you'd expect from a LP-type guitar. It has a 25 inch scale length and 24 frets, features a string-through body and has a different control layout than a traditional LP. If you're looking for a more traditional LP, this is not the guitar for you, but I personally like everything about this.

The body is a three piece mahogany, with a maple top with reveal binding and a flame maple veneer. The neck is a three piece maple neck with an ebony fretboard. The neck is advertised as a satin neck with a gloss headstock, but the neck feels slightly glossy to me. I do not dislike this, and the neck is still feels very fast, but Chapman himself states that the neck is satin on some videos, but it does not feel as so to me.

The finish is very nice, but it is not faultless. There is a slight over-spray on one side of the neck where it lines up with the body. A small amount of glue seems to have leaked from the neck pocket, as there is some glue on the body right next to the neck pocket which I could not remove and assume is under the finish. The 24th fret inlay also has a small piece of one of the dots missing. These faults are barely noticeable, and are only visual, but are worth mentioning.

The hardware is exceptional. The pickups sound great, and I do not feel that they need replacing. The bridge pickup has a good amount of bite and works well with heavier tones, whereas the neck pickup has a warmer tone, but usually sounds muddier when used with a tone other than a clean tone. The coil splitting sounds very good and provides very convincing single-coil sounds. I would've preferred if the pickups were individually splittable with a push/pull on the volume instead of a single push/pull on the tone, but as it is, it works very well. The tuners are very smooth and hold tune very well, the bridge is very easy to intonate and set up and the control pots work very well. The knobs do end up looking a bit cheap over a few months as the smoked black finish starts to wear off very fast. I personally don't mind this as I like the look of a well used guitar, but it might not be to everyone's taste.

A few other things worth mentioning:
The neck joint could have been better. It's quite comfortable to play on the upper frets, but I've seen much better neck joints.
The neck is slightly angled backwards, which does make it easier to get the action lower on higher frets, but in my experience, it is still impossible to get the action as low as i want it to without fret buzz on lower frets.
The guitar features a belly carve, but when playing the guitar sitting down, it still digs into my rib cage, which can get quite uncomfortable sometimes.
The guitar is quite heavy, and can be quite tiring in a stage environment, which is why I mainly use this guitar in studio environments.
The guitar is sustains very well and is very resonant, even unplugged.

Summary:
This guitar is nothing you'd expect from a LP-type. For the price, it is definitely worth looking at. It did have some small finish imperfections, but they are hardly noticeable. The pickups sound great and the controls work very well. Easy guitar to set up and feels like it's worth more than it is. The neck feels slightly glossy to me, but it is still a very fast neck and the guitar is quite heavy.

This guitar has a sound and feel of its own. A very good workhorse and plays as well as guitars which cost more than double its cost. If you're looking for something different, this guitar is worth looking at. If you're looking for a traditional LP, this guitar will probably not work well for you.

Wow!

03.07.2016
I was looking for a guitar below 700 EUR and my teacher advised the Chapman. I turned to this model since I'm more LP than Strat or Telecaster and so I took it.
First of all, it is beautiful. Superb red with nice stripes and knobs, the mechanics and the easel are a gray! Then the sound is super good. Well, at least it changes me from my first guitar. Afterwards, the pickups are not phenomenal but do their job well. I replaced them with Seymour Duncan and I really like the sound. Level of manufacture, I received it perfectly regulated and it was from the beginning a great pleasure. Basically, I love it !! And if I have to take a second guitar, I stay at Chapman's.
Small flats, it is rather heavy, the knob of the gain has a little bit of play and the bridge pickups also had.
Otherwise I definitely recommend Chapman to anyone on a budget like me. Thanks also to the Thomann team.
Great.
