Hey everyone,

So as promised here is an extensive review of the Chapman Guitars ML-2.
Although this is a video review I also made a written review for being who like text. The written review I thought was too long to be posted here so there is a link under the video.

In the video I discuss the nine different areas of this guitar that I feel are important. More information is written in the text version.

The different areas include:
-Information about the company
-Purchased from information
-Price
-Features
-Sound
-Durability
-Action, fit and finish
-Customer Support
-And a Overall Rating

I have never reviewed anything before but I am still flawed by the quality of this guitar.
I really want as many people to know about these as possible, because these guitars will not be made again and they will sell out in the coming weeks!

I put a lot of thought and effort into making the video and written review interesting. I aimed it really to people like me who sometimes want opinions, information and different tone samples.

As this is a review I wanted to keep as much information in the video as I could, but there’s many many more different genre video’s to show the different range of tones.

There’s so many great reviewers here and I love how extensive everyone is. I gave it my best shot

Hope you like it!

Sincerely,

And what exactly is the reason not to post this in the "reviews" section?

EDIT: To make myself clear, obviously you can't post a vid in the review section, but I think a short text review would be good for that section.

Yep no worries buddy.

The text review is taking a while for HC to load up so I just put the video review up first,
that's all buddy

dude i find this review, i've read the text version since i'm listening to my first run of the new red hot chili peppers album that is awesome btw, extremely good. i read this and everything i've wanted to know in terms of text written are in it.
for the sounds i'll check the video in half an album hehe expect an edit from me!;-)

one little point for the text review. it's says it build in korea but later you wrote that the chinese did a good job building it. brought confusion upon me but they're neighbours anyways xD

EDIT: video has some great range of tones showed, how is Dadgbe tuning holding up with stock pickups? isn't that too muddy?

I'm not going to say never, maybe in the future they will come back and make more but that would be a long time away.

I'd talk to andertons about maybe a slow pay off deal or something, because unfortunately there is only around 40 left at the moment i think.

Unfortunately at this stage mate the company is very new and still finding it's way. They just make batch runs of guitars 300-500

Sorry mate
