    Hi to your pets as well! (I still miss my cat. . .:()
    Yes, That is my real name as a user name. I have no need for anonymity. . .

    I've been lurking here for a bit, just after placing an order for a new ML1 Standard Modern ("Midnight Sky" - I love blue guitars. . .)

    I initially was just looking for more information on the guitar I just bought, as I wanted to get an idea of how good the quality may be in these new Indonesian-built guitars, but you all seem like such nice folks, I decided to sign up and stay a while. . .:)

    I also own a WMI-built ML1 in natural mahogany (the version with the natural back too - whole body is natural mahogany. . .), among many other guitars (I believe I currently own 21). I bought the first ML1 in 2013, somewhat late to the Chapman party, I guess. . .

    I have been playing guitar for most of my life (54 now), but since I never really took it all that seriously, my skills are somewhat limited. I sure do enjoy it though, and also love the artistry of guitar manufacture and design, which is one of the reasons I have so many. . .

    At any rate, greetings to you folks,
    - JPB

    Hi James, welcome to the forum.

    It's always good to have a new face around. A good number of us don't even have one Chapman Guitar so no worries about only just getting into the brand!

    I will take that hint @Poseidon , but I really don't have many pics of them yet, so it will take me a bit to get it done. . .
    Here is a taste to start (though it's likely one you may have seen already - PRS SE CU24 30th Anniversary in Violet):

    This is the one my wife saw and said: "You should buy that one." Well, ok, if I must. . .:D

    Welcome! Purple guitars are wonderful, and blue is the next best color.

    Thanks, @bad alice .
    It plays as good as it looks. If it were left entirely up to me, it would have been blue, but when the spouse says ". . .buy it. . .", it would be foolish to argue, imho.
    Good thing I also love purple. . .
    ;)

    Here is another guitar pic I happen to have of two more of my herd (sorry for the poor composition - not my forté):

    You know where you stand with a pignose.
    No fuss, no bullshit, just turn it up and hit the guitar hard.
    One of my very few forays away from Marshall was with a pig.
