Chapman Guitars Pro Series

Chapman Guitars decided it was time to take things up a notch, and it quickly got everyone’s attention. They’ve modified their classic foundation by adding some jaw-dropping enhancements, including some of their own creations. Their craftsmanship never goes unnoticed, but these guitars take that concept to the next level. The Pro Series delivers everything you’ve always loved about a Chapman guitar, but puts you a “riff” above the rest. 

The new Pro Series truly lives up to its name. Choose from some of your favorite classic Chapman shapes and configurations, as well as any of their new progressions, including the ML1 Traditional and Modern. And let’s not forget – the Pro Series is home of one of the most highly-anticipated developments in Chapman Guitars history: the MLV.

Now what exactly makes these “pro” guitars? Let’s start at the foundation. Each guitar is built from either a mahogany or swamp ash body, with carved tops and an allover satin finish. The mahogany guitars feature a flame maple top, while the swamp ash guitars are stained to see the beautiful natural wood grain. Some models feature a neck-through design for a stunning neck-to-body transition, while others sport a more traditional bolt-on design. The “C” shape neck profile makes vigorous playing effortless, and rolled edges make the ebony or maple fretboards comfortable and accessible. Each guitar features Chapman-spec’d custom pickups, Chapman custom bridges, Hipshot tuners, and includes strap locks and a deluxe hard case.

Some of our standouts include the ML2 Pro Modern in Fireburst, the ML1 Pro Modern in Sun, and the Ghost Fret Pro in Dusk.

Now wipe that drool off your shirt and go pre-order yours!
