Chapman MLB1 Fan Fret Dave Hollingworth Signature Bass - Quicksand with Case

Product Code: MLB1FF-DH-QSD

Chapman MLB1 Fan Fret DH

The Chapman MLB1 Fan Fret DH was designed in collaboration with Dave Hollingworth as one of his two new signature basses. Dave was excited and honored to be able to create a bass with Chapman that would include all of his favorite features that he has discovered by many years of playing bass. The product is a bass with an ergonomic shape, extremely comfortable neck, powerful tone, impeccable tuning stability, and let's not forget - a truly stunning look. Since Dave has always been a 4-string player, the MLB1 is "home" for him, but often finds himself needing the extended range of a 5-string. This fan fret version delivers exactly that - 26 fanned frets allows the necessary scale length to dive into the 5-string world without losing the 4-string feel.

Third party sales such as Reverb, Ebay, etc., are not covered by the Triple-R Warranty

Free Pro Setup
What is a Pro Setup? One of the reasons we started Riff City Guitar was to offer hometown service online.  One of the most unknown facts of buying an instrument online is that, in most cases, the online store sends you an instrument just as it arrived from the factory.  However, very few instruments are ready to play at that stage.  When comparing prices, always ask if the price of an instrument includes a professional setup.  If it does not, expect to spend an additional $35 to $60 at a local luthier's shop in your area.

We set up all stringed instruments of $99 or more by a professional luthier.* Our setups get rave reviews throughout the country. We encourage you to call or add comments to your order if you have any setup preferences. By default we set the instruments up for the best combination of playability and weather-related flexibility.
*Preowned, demo, blem, b-stock, closeout, and clearance items do not include our Free Pro Setup.  Also, sales on Third-Party sites such as Reverb and Ebay do not qualify for the Free Professional Setup.
