Hey guys, i was wondering what you guys think of Rob Chapman/Chapman guitars, Im a bit new to guitar, been playing for about 7 months, and thinking about guitar companies that arent well known, what do you guys think of them?

I think he's nauseating at times, cool at other times, is a great player but somewhat samey when you watch or listen to his stuff. I don't like his band at all.

Lots of people like his guitars though.

He's a marketer. He spends so much time trying to be chummy and funny in videos and selling things he's just... annoying. I totally agree on this front, and I've met the guy. I like him in person but on video he's kind of irritating.

That said... I've played a few of the original ML2 and ML1 runs and I do trust him when it comes to his own brand (and Lee Anderton for what it's worth, who's also a decent bloke in person) so I would be inclined to have a good amount of trust in the current Chapman guitars lineup.

where did you meet him at


Monkeyfest. Was a really good weekend, spent just about every night just kind of hanging out with everyone who was there so I spent a decent amount of time hanging out with him.

I've also heard good things. They're made at World Music Instrument Co. in Korea, same place that makes the PRS SE line which typically have a pretty good reputation.

He was but he didn't hang out; it's a long journey from where Monkeyfest was to where he lives.
