    I owned a Chappers ML1 for a while this year, didn't really care too much for it, tbh.
    With Keith Merrow onboard though, this may be worth checking out

    Chappers has opened the poll for the ML-7. First poll is the design of the body. Feel free to vote. :)

    Everyone seems to love the T-style, but I am really not so sure about it. I feel like for a 7-string it would just be too bulky, and losing the upper cutaway sucks bigtime.

    A t-style seems cool in concept but all I can think about is the esp 7string tele that I think is horrid. 7 strings + tele body just don't seem to go together and I love teles!

    I wanna see the T-type. I would love to see a fanned fret 7-string Tele of some kind. :D

    How many affordable superstrat 7's are there out there? And how many tele's? Even if I wanted a superstrat 7 (which I don't, I'd much prefer a tele), I'd probably still vote tele just for a bit of variation.

    There is no superstrat option. Just strat. It saddens me. :(

    I'm really interested to see how this guitar turns out! It looks like it might end up being a tele style 7, so maybe it'll be like a cheaper Stephen Carpenter tele, with passive pickups and I like Deftones, so it could be a better option for me that the ibanez rg827, but I'll have to see how it turns out...

    Ive always liked Chappers and of course Keith is a phenomenal guy as well.
    Also excited that they decided to go with World Musical instead of Cort as a manufacturer.

    There will be several variations of the body style to choose from in the next poll or a later poll. The 4 options here aren't the final design that will be used. It will probably undergo many modifications. Good or bad... :/

    According to the recent video the shapes are just basic outlines, so if the strat body wins, you could still get your superstrat option.

    I choose the "t" option, as the concept of a 7 string supertele appeals to me.

    Voted for the EX body style, because that's what I like.
    I probably wouldn't be interested in the slightest if it was a "superxxxx"

    Which looks like the most probable scenario.

    Fixed. :fawk:

    And I'm torn between the Tele or the EX. :(

    EDIT: Fuck it, voted Tele. We need more traditional 7-strings. :D

    I'm actually interested in seeing how this goes. Maybe I'll buy one at the end of it. I always thought the Chapman guitars were a cool idea.
