OVERVIEW

A well-designed 5-string bass with humbuckers and ebony fretboard.

From its very beginnings on the Rob Chapman Forum back in 2012, the MLB1 is back, better and stronger than ever - this time with both 4 and 5 string options.

Now featuring an American Walnut neck-through construction, open gear tuners, beautiful stainless steel frets, glow-in-the-dark side fret markers and deluxe hard case, the MLB1-5 Pro has brought Chapman’s bass game into 2018 with a low-end bang. Includes nice hardshell case.
