Out of stock
Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting…
A beautiful and really cool guitar that have just recently been showing up in the USA…They are made in Korea and built for Anderton’s Music Co of Guildford, outside of London England. It’s a 2013 Chapman ML-2 Classic Gold Top with the original Chapman branded Hard Shell Case. Awesome guitar and it’s in fantastic shape!
So who is Chapman Guitars?
In 2014 Chapman Guitars and Riff City Guitar had the most serendipitous meeting the Guitar industry had ever seen. A popular YouTube guitar player, Rob Chapman, a colorful personality to say the least, with dreads reaching halfway down his back would shake hands with US nuts-and-bolts businessman who had just a year earlier launched a retail guitar store. With both companies in their infancy at the time, a partnership that would propel both enterprises to meteoric rises was forged with that handshake. They would go on to sell thousands of guitars in the US in unconventional ways including two American Expedition bus tours where the two unlikely friends forged a lifelong friendship.
Chapman Guitars are truly the best value in modern day electric guitars due to factory direct model that bypasses distributor markups. Wildly popular due to Rob Chapman's appeal to his loyal YouTube fan base, the reviews speak for themselves. Chapman guitars are high quality guitars at incredibly affordable price points, a mission that Rob Chapman himself has laid out from the beginning.
Here’s some info I found on the internet regarding these cool guitars..
The special run Chapman ML-2 Classic is a tribute to the 1950s gold tops, the very pinnacle of sophistication and the poster-boys of vintage guitars at their very best. This special run has the same basic spec as the standard ML-2 with the addition of a Gold Top finish, USA Seymour Duncan SH-1 Blues set of 59 PAF style humbuckers and in place of the coil tap you can pull the tone control to invert the phase of the neck pickup (commonly referred to as the Peter Green Mod).
- Seymour Duncan USA SH1 Blues Humbucker set
- Push/Pull Tone knob inverts the neck pickup phase
- Includes Hardcase
Why invert the phase of the neck pickup?
This feature was inspired by Peter Green's out of phase Les Paul sound which was the result of a happy accident: Green's Les Paul was incorrectly rewired after a service with the two pickups out of phase with each other. The pickups fighting each other instead of working together results in what we now know as Peter Green's iconic tone which you can now have on demand!

This is a seriously cool guitar. I especially love the Ebony fretboard with the extra bling inlaid at the 12th fret. I played this guitar twice in two different days for about ½ hour each time. I finally decided I needed to bring this guitar to the shop for one of my lucky customers. It is a really cool guitar.
If that isn’t enough, signed on the back is Robb Chapman’s signature along with the signature of Lee Anderton, the owner of Anderton’s Music. Easily removed if you are like me and don’t like signatures on our guitars. LOL…
Fit and finish of this guitar is just great. It feels great in the hand with a really nice medium C profile. It has a 25 inch scale neck with a 1 ¾ inch nut. The pickups sound outrageous. With the out of phase feature, you will not get tired of the sounds of this cool guitar.
Check out that cool Chapman branded Hard Shell Case. It’s as nice as the guitar. The truss rod tool and case key are in the accessory box. Nice deluxe Black plush interior to coddle your cool Chapman Gold Top.
Beautiful yet used so it’s sold as is no returns. However, I have been hand picking my customers instruments for over 20 years now and they all loved the guitars I found for them. This incredible Chapman Gold Top will certainly not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars!
