    Surprised by the high quality of the Indonesian build.

    I bought this guitar based solely on its specs. I had never heard of these models until a few weeks ago and am not familiar with the artist who designed them. But he did a great job imo.

    For my needs this guitar proved to be almost perfect, from the custom profile neck, to the placement of the controls, to the EMGs and featherweight 6.75 lbs.

    The neck has the same width as a Gibson 60s neck, but is much more shallow with a flatter (15.75") radius. There is ample room between the E strings and the side of the fb, but it feels like there is a lot of real estate between the strings as well. I guess that is because of the shallow neck. Really comfortable to play.

Really comfortable to play.

    The control is placed with convenient access, but they left a comfortable distance to allow palm muting. I prefer having the pickup selector switch under the control pot as well. Something I would have never thought of.

    The control pot has a feature I really like. When you roll off the volume to clean up the sound there is a resistance point that lets you know you hit the sweet spot. If you want the volume all the way off you use more pressure when you turn the control.

    The EMG pickup set 81-B and 60-N offer a nice match and enough balls for my taste as a Hard Rock guy.

    My neck and back are tired from playing Les Pauls and this guitar is lighter than most SGs.

    The frets are pleked so no issues there, but they do need to be dressed and polished as they are a little sharp along the side.

    I have two LPs, two SGs a Strat an AH-10 and AH-20 an Axis and several others to choose from, but the MBM2 is the one I am using as my main guitar guitar now. That is basically why I signed up to do the review.

    I use a DAW with ProTools and Amplitube.

    A very good guitar

    This guitar is Ibanez catalog published in 2010 and after testing in store I ordered it. Arrived home ten days later I discovered with some joy that the model is finally black. While the MBM2 exists in both color and so much more!
    I travel then the EMG 60 and 81 of the handle 24 cases a very smooth and very fast to play. I am surprised at the very low weight compared to my old Ibanez GRG.
    The lifts are not blocked which is very convenient to change the tuning to perfection, which Tuning is also very well with the fixed bridge.

    UTILIZATION

    The instrument is very fun to play, you do not regret one second, the neck and body are very practical and can play very fluid, one feels the presence and power of the microphones that catapult her into the room so quite phenomenal.

    SOUNDS

    Forget the "they say" compared to EMG in the clear!
    I made a reason to play things quiet and romantic by buying this instrument and finally the sound is wonderful both in its own clear that distortion.
    To get an idea go listen to some songs from Bullet For My Valentine, clear sound: the sound is exactly the same.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it only for a few days but I do not regret in any case, the price / quality ratio is excellent, especially the tier maintenance 9V battery every 6 months is sufficient in addition to a set of ropes course.
    The design is for its catchy, ideal for stage and especially the guitar is signed but is largely unknown which leaves doubt to the public.
