Chapman Guitars is a guitar company established in 2009 by Rob Chapman, a guitarist known for his video uploads on YouTube.[2] The company designs its guitars "collaboratively", with the design, features, and specs of new models selected by public votes in online polls on their website.[3]


The ML-2 was limited to 250 pieces.[4]

The ML-1 featured a solid mahogany Fender Stratocaster-style body, a maple neck and an ebony fingerboard. The ML-1's body and distinctive reverse-style head-stock had a simple, satin black finish. The ML-1 was priced for the entry level market when it initially retailed for £299, the second batch price reduced to £199.
