Chapman Guitars ML1-7 Pro Modern (7-String)

The first ever Chapman seven string arrived in the UK back in February 2014.

With its understated, work-horse looks and deadly sonic prowess, it was a head turner and immediately sent ripples through the “shredosphere”.

Four years later and with four years more experience, feedback and a whole new vote under Chapman Guitars' belt, we are very proud to introduce the new 7-string range.

This time round we have added some highly requested, additional killer specifications, including features like neck through construction, stainless steel frets, thick AAA flamed Canadian maple tops, hip shot tuners and Chapmans own Sonorous 7 and Promordial 7 humbuckers.

Available in both ML1-7 Pro Modern and for the first time Ghost Fret 7 Pro, these extended range seven string beauties from Chapman guitars are the culmination of the blood sweat and dreams of thousands of guitarists all around the world.
