Chapman ML-2 Classic press release
- Limited Edition Gold Top Finish
- Seymour Duncan USA SH1 Blues Humbucker set
- Push/Pull Tone knob inverts the neck pickup phase
- Includes Hardcase
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 limited edition 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).
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!
