The collaboration between Evanstad Musikk and Chapman Guitars started when the Evanstad crew met Lee and Rob at the NAMM show in 2013. Later it was decided that Evanstad Musikk would be the first official Chapman Guitars retailer outside the UK. From the very start, we planned on making a guitar to honor the Scandinavian contribution to music. This lead to the birth of the Norseman guitars.

The Norseman is a beefy, fat sounding and awesome guitar based on the ML1. It has now been upgraded in many ways to fit the new range of Chapman Guitars better. The upgrades include a spoon cut, a solid maple top, weight relieved mahogany, open gear tuners and new control knobs placement.

Following the massive release of new Chapman guitars in 2017 we're very excited to announce an addition to the Norseman range! The Hjarn is perhaps the most viking guitar of all the Norseman guitars yet. Hjarn is an old Norwegian term for hard frozen snow. Its white quilted maple top finish reflects a cold, but beautiful morning in the snowy and harsh winter of the North.
