    In addition to the mmm1 I own an ibanez rg 450 and am using a line 6 1x12 flextone 3 amp. I always thought it sounded good, nice crunch with tight bass for rock, metal and shred. I needed a second guitar for tuned down nu-metal and ordered the mmm1 based on online reviews as I could not find a local dealer that had one in stock. This guitar sounds so good that it has taken the #1 spot for all styles, not just nu-metal. I was shocked by how much better the mmm1 sounded for blues than the rg. Who would have thought a baritone could crank out a nice warm blues tone? The tone on the mmm1 is much deeper, and has a much mellower high end than the rg. Digital amp users will be impressed with the change. Notes bloom, feedback in a controled manner at volume, and sound very tube like thru the flex 3. The stock strings are 14s and make this guitar sound just a touch muddy, changing to 12s solved the problem. You should be aware that the neck on this guitar is very C shaped and thick and may be difficult to play at speed if you are used to a thin neck like the rg. Access to the final 3 frets is also somewhat limited in stock form. The oil finish does rub off a little over time.

    Honestly, this guitar is nice but it's not spectacular. First off, it does not have an "oil" finish...it is a sprayed on "coating" and it isn't very durable. If your pick hits the body a few good times, you end up with marks that indent the wood (I have refinished 2 of these for friends, so I'm speaking from experience here). As for the bridge: it certainly is beefy, but it doesn't do anything whatsoever for sustain or tone. I have other guitars with tune-o-matic bridges that kill this one in tone and have equal or better sustain. I believe that a person should be able to lower their strings as much as they want to...you can't do that with this bridge because it has a metal baseplate that prevents you from dropping the action past a certain point. I had to remove the base plate and route out the bridge cavity just to drop the action to my liking. The pickups are mediocre..nothing to jump up and down about, really. Over all, my ESP LTD baritone has more features, a better finish and came stock with EMG pickups (and it sounds MUCH better), and still costs a couple hundred less than the MMM1. Don't buy this just because Staind has one hit song, people. It's not a good enough guitar for the price.

    This guitar is HEAVY!

    By Zeno77

    from Easton, MD

    And when I say HEAVY I don't only mean the Bone Jarring tone that is produced by the High Output Custom 58 Humbucker's. Im talking about the weight! The massive feel of the MMM1 lets you know that you are dealing with a serious piece of equipment. The beefy 3 piece Mahogany Body and Neck produce Fatter, Heavier tones, while the Custom Gibralter Bridge and String thru Body design offers amazing sustain. While the Custom 58 High Output Humbucker's produce more gain and distortion then any other stock or after-market pick-up I've had installed by Seymour Duncan or DiMarzio. And not only does the MMM1 produce more distortion then any other guitar I've played, the Custom 58's also produce some of the warmest and deepest clean tones I've ever heard, which has opened up a new door in my song writing and improv sessions. Absolutly the BEST guitar I've owned!

    BARITONE ADDICT

    By M.R.

    from Cleveland, OH

    For my big hands, the baritone is it, and the MMM1 is the most BS-free guitar I've ever owned. It's a simple design and just downright functional. Great feel to it. The neck angle and bridge placement really facillitate a good right hand position. The knobs and switch never get in the way.This thing stays in tune for weeks, and I'm not kidding. It seems like the longer scale really minimizes tuning issues. At the present moment, I have mine tuned from B to B with a set of Baritone Slinky strings (13/18/30w/44/56/74 - huge low B)With those strings on, I'll play a low B power chord through my Marshall, and let me tell you, it truly is the MEANEST guitar sound I've ever heard. I'm amazed every time I hear it. Great clean tones from all 3 positions too! Even in standard tuning (which I use most of the time with GHS Eric Johnsons), it's a great sounding guitar. I'm playing my Strat a lot less these days. Cheers to Mike Mushok for designing such a great instrument. Impress yourself and all your friends and go buy one. I promise you'll dig it.

    Very nice peice...

    By wingman

    from Twin Cities

    I love this guitar. I bought one about 2 yrs ago and sold it. I totally regret selling it, but I bought another one about a week ago. The only thing about this guitar I don't like, is the pickups. They are nice for clean tones, but I prefer high output. I'm changing the brdg. pickup but I'll keep the neck pickup. Overall, a great guitar.

    Great guitar

    By GuitarGodgt

    from King Ferry, NY

    I purchased this through ebay (because I don't trust MF for this type of product) and I must say that this thing is truly awsome. I used to take a Gibson SG and tune it down with thicker gauge stings and it just wasn't as chunky as this thing is. The best feature of this guitar however is the fact that Mike didn't have Ibanez plaster his name all over it (like Korn's K-7) or Paul stanley's Ice man. The only mark that this is a sig model is a small signature on the cavety plate. Defintly well worth it.

    Nu guitar for nu metal

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    It's just one of the best guitars and it's really great to play on a guitar that you can tune down really low and still get friction on the strings. The sound is awesome!

    A great buy

    By JSW12

    from Illinois

    In my opinion, this is the best baritone guitar on the market, and a great value at the price. The longer scale neck takes only minor (if any) playing adjustment; fret spacing is excellent and guitarists should have no problem going back and forth between this and standard guitars.Sound is pleasantly clear -- if you like higher gain distortion with low tunings, this instrument will be a great addition to your collection. Rock solid body with a nice natural finish.Electronics are typical with no great surprises, though the bridge side pickup has a great growl to it. The custom bridge and thru-body stringing do a great job of holding the instrument in tune under even the toughest player's attack. No cool features beyond the standard guitar stuff though.I got it set up for B-F#-B-E-G#-C# with gauges: .074, .056, .040, .030, .017, .014. Using anything lighter is not recommended.
