    ML1 Norseman side dots

    Probably....but I would have expected the Chapman site to get it right at least. Oh well not the end of the world, but disappointing as it is a feature on my ML3 I really appreciate.

    ML1 Norseman side dots

    I am disappointed for sure....I do gig with them so believe it was missed. May make me go back to my ML3 so I know where I am playing

    ML1 Norseman side dots

    The Chapman website says the ML1 Norseman has glow in the dark side dots. But I can't get them to glow at all on both my 2018 models. My ML3 glows nicely, but nothing coming to life on the Norseman. Has anyone else noticed the same issue on their guitars? Just curious.

    Chapman / Thomann model

    Whatever happened to the ML1 with a Floyd? Wasn't that long ago there a video about that vote too. Course I have a few ML1 guitars with a Floyd....called a Norseman. But was just curious. Will be curious to see how this one turns out too

    ML1 Baritone- Pickups and tone pot replacment

    I think the issues are pretty common. I have a few Chapmans and so far two have had the pickups pots/switches and wiring all replaced. Stock pups aren't bad, but aren't great. I am gutting my ML1 Norseman this weekend, decided on a SD Custom 5 in the bridge and 59 in the neck.

    Impression of my new ML2 Pro Modern

    I have a theory....since the QC issues appear to be more recent, at least to me I have noticed more of these types of complaints in the the last 12 months or so......that the production runs are winding down and B stock is making its way out to dealers to fill orders. But it is just a theory I...

    Impression of my new ML2 Pro Modern

    Can't get over how many times prior complain about the noisy, not working properly electronics. Bea sigs, both my Norsemans, ML2 Modern....all coming out of the WMI Korea facility.

    Anyone else having problems with Chapman guitars?

    Guess I was lucky with the 3 Chapmans I have. Not perfect (no guitar ever is) and I can fix the issues I am not happy about. But yes definitely makes me less inclined to buy another. I hope you get this sorted out, should be expensive to have it fixed. GC should be be ashamed of themselves, and...

    ML1-Pro Modern - neck profile /feel?

    I haven't played the other guitars you have mentioned.....but I have played various charvel and Ibanez with thinner profile necks. Right now I play my 2 ML1 Norseman guitars mainly and I love the necks. They are more of C shape, 14" radius. Good feel, more substantial, but still fast and easy to...

    Anyone else having problems with Chapman guitars?

    Keep hearing of bad pots, switches and wiring. That there is no excuse for ever. I have already had to replace the 3 way switch on my ML1 Norseman. Ordered a few extras since I fix guitars as a side business, and you can never have enough spare parts. I am waiting to see how long it takes for...

    Anyone else having problems with Chapman guitars?

    I just expect (regardless of price point) I am going to be doing a once over and setup any time I buy a new guitar. They are never playable to me off the wall, or setup to "factory specs" by the dealer or factory. Guess I am just a wee bit picky.
