Ibanez MM1 or...

Hi. First post at this site!

I checked out a YouTube studio version of "Still Got the Blues" with Marcus Miller and Andy Timmons playing. Both sound great. It's a really fine version of the tune if you're into blues.

I play a '69 LP for humbucker sounds but it's getting heavier, so I've always got my eye out for a light alternative.

The MM1 that Marcus is playing sounds incredible (as does he, of course). I'm wondering if there's an equivalent model that doesn't have his endorsement? Basically, I'd like a different finish on the exact same ax, if that's at all possible.

Thanks.

Martin Miller.
I'm not sure that same axe exists as a non-sig. His is the only Prestige level AZ with a mahogany body I think. The standard AZ2402 is pretty much the same guitar but with an alder body not Mahognay. TBH if I had my pick of any Prestige AZ it would be the MM1.

Yes: Martin. My bad.

Interesting and thanks for the tip: Mahogany, to my mind, is key. I hadn't checked that on the description and I'm sure it has a lot to do with the sound. My LP is mahogany and I was struck by how much that MM1 sounded like it, playing the YouTube through my stereo.

Maybe this could help. Mahogany Ibanez and Gary Moore cover.

Interesting you’d mention that guitar. I think it’s the same one that Martin Miller played before developing his signature model. They were comparing it to the MM1 in an interview I checked out.
