This project has been completed. Read about its journey below!
We asked you to help us mod this Chapman legacy ML-1 BEA, by telling us what pickups you think it should have, and if there were any other modifications you would make.
After the suggestion phase, three members of our team came up with their own mods of the ML-1 BEA based on your ideas. We then asked you to vote for your favorite of the three options.
The winning option included Bare Knuckle Warpigs, a clear pickguard with Bea’s ‘Fro logo, and a CTS volume pot with a Switchcraft jack/toggle.
Once the guitar was finished in the shop, we put it up for auction. Our Mod Shop ML-1 BEA has found its new home in the arms of lucky bidder Jim Navarre.
