Designed in collaboration with USA retailer Riff City Guitar, the ML1 CAP10 America boasts true Chapman quality with its carefully selected, fan-driven features. Riff City used our fan-based voting process to determine the body materials, finish, and pickup configuration, and couldn't be prouder with the results. After all, we wouldn't be here without all of you.
The combination of a mahogany body and maple top work in harmony to create impeccable tonal balance and rolled edges provide additional comfort on the body and fretboard. A thin C contour and satin finish allow your hand to glide down the length of the neck with precision and ease.
Stacked in the bridge is a Seymour Duncan Custom, a humbucker with moderate output suited for blues, rock and metal. In the middle, a Vintage Hot Stack, delivering authentic Strat tone with a touch of warmth and sustain. And finally, in the neck position, a Duncan '59 with articulate treble attack, midrange scoop and full bottom end. Not only will your tone be on point, but the 3-Tone Burst finish and white pearloid pickguard will make you look as good as you sound.
'Seeing this guitar for the first time literally made my heart soar.'
