Guitar Center and Chapman Guitars Now Accepting
Musicians’ Votes for New Guitar Design!

For the first time ever, musicians have the opportunity to contribute to the design specifications of a guitar, to be sold exclusively through Guitar Center; submissions accepted at online through Friday, April 20

Westlake Village, CA (April 17, 2018) – For the first time ever, Guitar Center, the world’s largest musical instrument retailer, has partnered with Chapman Guitars for a unique opportunity to engage customer input and vote on the design specifications of a semi-hollow-body guitar, to be sold exclusively through Guitar Center!

Rob Chapman, frontman and guitarist for Dorje, and the founder/owner of Chapman Guitars, will base the guitar’s design on their existing ML3 Pro Traditional design, featuring a thick carved Maple Cap, Mahogany body, Stainless Steel Frets, and a baked Maple neck.

The voting options for the pickup and finish of this exclusive guitar include:

  • Pickups: Humbuckers, P90's or Filtertron
  • Finish: Honey Burst, Charcoal Burst or Original Ghost Fret Blue

Visitors to https://www.chapmanguitars.co.uk/voting/ can vote on pickup and finish options through Friday, April 20, 2018.

Thanks to the tremendous customer response to the pickup and finish voting, another option will be added on Saturday, April 21, to allow customers to vote on the “f hole” design. This second vote will end on midnight, April 24. Rob Chapman will then announce the results from both polls on Wednesday, April 25.

The winning guitar designs will be available for purchase exclusively at Guitar Center stores and online during the 2018 Holiday Season.

All Chapman guitars are designed with input from Rob Chapman’s 640,000 subscribers – a process he calls “collaborative sourcing.”
