    About a month ago Chapman Guitars posted the below YouTube video of their factory tour. In the Korea factory, they found the first prototype of the ML3 Pro Traditional Semi-Hollow getting dusty in a corner and decided to offer it up for a lucky winner. To enter you just needed to comment on the video listing Rob's shirt color. I almost didn't comment but figured what the hell, commented and completely forgot about it.

    Forward to yesterday I get an email from YouTube saying I had a reply. I was confused as I never comment on YouTube, the Chapman was my first ever. Jump in and I see it is Chapman Guitars saying I won and to contact them! WTH!! They say it is currently in transit from Korea to them and they will send it on once they get it. I'm still in disbelief and probably will be so until I have it my hands. I'll be totally blown away if it has the same specs as the retail versions (https://www.guitarcenter.com/Chapman/ML3-Pro-Traditional-Semi-Hollow-Electric-Guitar.gc)

    Here's the video. They talk about the giveaway starting at about the 3 minute mark.


    Here's s screenshot of Rob holding the dusty guitar (without hardware). So cool, mind blown.

    Congratulations, that's a fine Monkey Lord!

    There is an ML3 like that at my local GC that always appeals to me. Probably helps that my initials are ML, and 3 is my favorite number. LOL

    Nice! I've been wanting a P90 guitar, or I had until I got that Gibson last week.

    Thanks Everyone.

    I went with black.

    Rob mentions in the video about adding hardware. But like @Mickey said, I'll take it either way!

    Will do. I just gave them permission to use my name in the announcement. It's been a slow email dialog as there is a 10 hour difference between Hawaii and England.

    very cool.

    Monday I won a $200 Amazon gift card from filling out a survey after I DIDN'T buy a set of tires. I was skeptical until I put the code in and the money popped up in the Amazon gift card page...

    Congrats. Will they be putting parts in it or is being sent as a project? If not maybe they would for an extra fee? Probably be better than most normal upgrades and I'm thinking a lot of the experience of a chapman guitar is how the whole package is put together and its setup. Either way: Jelly!

    Nice!

    Rob mentions adding hardware in the video so I think it's coming complete. Either way I'm happy!
