Chapman guitars, set up by guitarist and YouTube personality Rob Chapman, is a small British guitar company with a big difference. Rather than design guitars to sell you they use ‘collaborative design’ and a team of highly skilled musicians, engineers, designers and creatives.

They also use a non-traditional distribution business model, which enables them to save money to put into quality and production.


Their first guitar was the ML-1, which they put out to the public, via videos, to vote on each part of it –  body shape, woods used, pickup style and hardware.
