The Chapman Norseman is a collaborative effort between Evenstad Musikk and Chapman Guitars. It's a beefy, fat sounding ML1 shape, and has now been newly upgraded for 2018. Some of the new features include a spoon cut, solid quilted maple top, weight-relieved mahogany body, open tuners, and new knob placement. The name of its finish, "Hjarn," is an old Norwegian term for hard, frozen snow. The white quilted maple top reflects a cold, beautiful morning in the harsh winter of the North.
