Chapman Guitars has been in operation since 2009 producing crowd-sourced guitars decided by fan votes on the company's YouTube channel. Best known for his instructive guitar videos, company founder Rob Chapman began manufacturing the ML ("Monkey Lord") series in both standard and signature lines, transferring production to South Korea in 2013. Taking design elements and appointments from classic models while standing with a sound and feel all their own, Chapman Guitars are an affordable avenue to huge tone.
