    Hey there fellas. I've always been a fan of chapman guitars and this new line up looks amazing. Now I was wondering anyone who owns this model or has played it if they can give me a review/impressions of it. I have been trying to find some reviews of this model all over the internet. From forums to youtube and nothing. So I figured this is the best place to ask. Thanks guys

    Put that on the Chapman Guitars website testimonials.

    In all seriousness, He had some good things to say, didn't shy too much away from the bad, but I heard... the same clean-tone string buzzy-ness my ML-3 Modern had when I first got it, before I got a better setup and thicker strings. I don't think he would be 100% satisfied with his 9s on there... or at least, I wouldn't.
    10-52s still seem to be the way to go on all Modern Chapmans (especially when in Drop D or Eb Drop Db, though you'd need thicker ones for the latter tuning, if you pick hard).

    I agree, I have 10-52s on my past gen ML1 and it's fantastic, maybe a bit tough on E standard for bends and stuff, matter of preference I guess, but I think it's the best if you also play in those tunings you mentioned.
