    Hi guys,

    I'm mega excited to say that today in approx 30 minutes I'm launching a vote for a "Guitar Center Special Run" Semi Hollow ML3.

    It was asked for by so many people at our recent GC clinics that it got back to GC head office and the rest is history.

    This will be exclusive to GC until Dec, then it will be available to the rest of the world - I'll probably bring out some different versions at NAMM after voting with you guys.

    Enjoy!!

    Rob, that sounds great. I've been waiting for this. I would go for the P90 option, but that is just a personal preference because I don't own a P90 guitar yet. ;-)
    Can you make sure the routing is for standard humbucker though? Would be easier to customize it then.

    I voted for P90's and the blue finish...hopefully, I'll be able to get one of these once they're available worldwide. It'd be good to have a P90 equipped thinline.

    I wish you guys would make a ML-3 bass, not many tele shaped basses (the only major one is made by Schector).

    I wanted the honey with 90s and modern f-hole.
    Didn't see what color and pickups they ended up with. Looks like the traditional f-hole will win. Boring.

    Does anyone have any idea what the price point will be on these? I am so excited for this one! I need to start saving my pennies! There’s no way I will purchase one through guitar center though. I’ll wait and buy it through Riff City.

    I think, since it's a Guitar Center collab, they're likely to only be sold at Guitar Center.

    Guitar Center will have a few months of initial exclusivity, like the other dealer-specified Chapman Guitars models.

    These will most likely cost a bundle here in Australia (if they're produced beyond this initial run). I'm still interested, however. I've always liked Thinline Teles but haven't found one with a neck I liked. I like the neck on my current Chapman so I'm hoping the same will hold true for these - if I ever get to try one out.
