Some of you will already know the Rob Chapman forum because at this stage probably many of my readers come from there. For those who don’t know it, the Rob Chapman Forum (RCF) is an internet forum for guitar lovers, started by Rob although he only appears very occasionally on the site. Rob Chapman is one of the best known YouTube guitar bloggers / presenters, best known for his work with Anderton’s. Recently, Rob has been working with his band Dorje, and he also heads Chapman Guitars, one of a very small number of UK-based guitar brands (as opposed to luthiers, of which there are plenty in the UK).
The RCF is one of my two favourite forums (the other is AVForums), and the people on there are generally helpful and sarcastic in equal measure! It’s also the home of the RCF jams, as posted a couple of days ago.
The Chapman guitars are partly responsible for my YouTube videos, since my first video was a review of the Chapman Guitars MLB-1 bass in January 2015, and I just continued from there. It’s a really nice bass, and I think it’s a shame that CG hasn’t made more bass guitars!
