Why is this guitar here? This guitar was made for the marketing launch of the Made In England Workshop. You can see this being played in the official Chapman Guitars promotional video. As such there may be some light playing surface marks but this guitar is brand new, never owned.
This guitar was in the first batch made after the final prototype stage for Chapman Guitars' pre-launch promotional use.
The guitar is made by hand by UKGB Ltd (ukguitarbuilders.co.uk) Comes with a custom molded Hiscox hardcase.
Condition: This is a brand new DEMO Workshop Series ML1 X. It comes equipped with our Pro-Tech setup and Chapman’s warranty. Drop Dee Guitars is an authorized dealer of Chapman Guitars.
Pro-Tech Setup: Our Pro-Tech setup makes your guitar ready to rock straight out of the box. Here’s how..
- Make any adjustments so the neck is straight to avoid any fret buzzing and for comfort
- Check the nut and nut slots for any adjustments/filing to prevent any tuning issues, as well as for comfort at the lower frets
- Make any adjustments to the bridge/tremolo system so it’s in the proper position for tuning stability
- Set the action to a height that feels comfortable for each guitar
- Set the intonation so you’re in tune everywhere on the neck
All of these steps will make your brand new guitar feel as comfortable as ever and ready to play straight out of the box!
