    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.

    Anyone else having problems with Chapman guitars?

    Cosmo music which is a huge retailer in Canada also stopped ordering Chapman guitars for pretty much the same reason. They also had issues with some guitars requiring repairs direct from factory upon receipt. Mind you Cosmo does a once over and setup for all of their guitars upon receipt and...

    Anyone else having problems with Chapman guitars?

    Yeah given the problems you are having with that Bea sig I would be returning it. I mean that is a lot of money to not be happy and having the issues you are experiencing. Either play the replacement if possible or get a dealer like Riff City to do a once over before it goes out the door. I...

    Anyone getting a british standard chapman?

    I would never ever pay that much for a guitar, don't care who makes it lol. But I will however continue to search endlessly for the first "got my BSC" unboxing video.

    Some Concerns with my Ghost Fret Pro 7

    Maybe...... I never really noticed it as much as I have until the last decade or so. But then again maybe I just wasn't as picky and didn't notice. Who knows.

    Some concerns with my ML3 Pro.....

    Yeah you can also try a razor blade or exacto knife blade, put the blade at a 90 degree angle and scrape across the top of the fret board surface gently and carefully. Lemon oil may help soften the glue as well. Then use the synthetic wool to buff clean after

    Some concerns with my ML3 Pro.....

    Yup that is some pretty shitty clean up. Some lemon oil and synthetic wool should work off the gloss. Sadly I have seen that on many guitars, including a Ibanez Premium Indonesian made guitar I had, and a Charvel San Dimas. Doesn't make it ok, but not uncommon.

    Some Concerns with my Ghost Fret Pro 7

    If it makes you feel better....I feel the same about the 2 Norseman ML1 I bought a few weeks back. I love the guitars but I am disappointed with some aspects of the guitars. To be fair I bought a charvel recently and there issues with that guitar as well. Stuff you don't really come around to...

    Replacement bridge for old ML1

    Yeah I would say slightly darker....less bright which was a good thing. I didn't like the brass ones that came on my ML3 so the Graph Techs were the perfect solution for me.

    Anyone else having problems with Chapman guitars?

    That neck pup is likely fairly hot to compliment the bridge. But shouldn't be any noisier than the bridge pup. Not really sure since I can hear what the noise is that troubling you, but I doubt that the pickup is crap. If you can post a sound sample of vid maybe I could tell...but it is a...

    Replacement bridge for old ML1

    Have you looked at changing the string saddles? I am a big fan of the Graph Tech string saver saddles. They work really well and pretty much eliminate string breakage on my ML3. Doesn't take much to cause string breakage at any point of contact, reasons could be many. But if you have it...
