When we see an 8-string guitar, it is usually assumed that its only use is ultra-heavy metal, djent or another similar genre. However, the incredibly thoughtful design of the Chapman ML18 Pro Rob Scallon Lunar 8-String allows it to excel in virtually any style and perhaps completely new styles! From the craftsmanship to the tonewoods and electronics, this beast has all the boxes checked!
“As I worked to design the new 7 string, I really loved the matte black finish sitting alongside the racing stripe of the mahogany so we decided to incorporate that onto the 6 and 8 for 2020. It still uses the lightweight swamp ash wings on a mahogany neck through giving that great tonal range through the Passive Aggressive humbuckers. I really hope you like this new variation.” -Rob
