Okay so I found a flawless Ibanez MTM1 (slipknot baby) for $800.00. It sells for $1499.00 new. I have to drive over an hour from my house to buy it. I really want it but is this a really good guitar or am I just buying the Mick Thomson name here? I mostly play metal and have an ESP MH-400 and a KH-202. Is there a better guitar in this price range or should I just bite the bullet and drive up there and snatch it up today? I would appreciate any feedback on this.

Get this f-ing guitar. Its Blackouts blow everything away. And the neck is extremely thin anf wide, so it's great for shredding. But be aware that i's tuned down to Drop C from factory, so you might have to adjust the trem if you want to tune higher.

The tremolo is locked it comes factory like that. I don't know why. Tuning stability I guess. The FR does not pivot at all.

IMHO, you're buying a name.
I love all 5 (sold a couple) of my Carvin X-100b's.

it comes with active SD blackouts not the EMG's. I believe a decent RG runs around $800.00 too does it not?

It's an RG with different pick ups and a famous name. That's what you pay for. If you ask me you can get a much better Ibanez guitar if you just browse ebay or something in the same pricerange.

hey man im just sayin what it looked like from the pics.

if you look at my original post it says "it looks like a RG with EMG's" never did i say that i knew **** about the guitar...its one of those thing called an opinion

I have NO interest in correcting anyone, or saying its better or its worse or your paying for the name....but from the looks of it...your paying for the name

it does look purrty tho..


EDIT: lets put it this way. so you would buy a Scheter Syn Custom over the Avenger Hellraiser because "the specs are different". YOUR PAYING FOR THE NAME

Dude, get this thing. It's an awesome guitar (I've played it).
Nowhere are you going to find better Ibanez for this price.
It has a custom locked bridge that no other guitars come with, it has the blackouts, which NO other Ibanez comes with, and it's factory tuned in drop-B. I'm guessing you play metal so that should be no problem.

At 1499, you would be paying a little for the name, yes, but at 800? Hell no.
