I think the MTM2 is the lower price version and doesn't have the Blackouts or the exact same bridge.
I've been really interested in trying it until I saw it had a painted neck even though it's a bolt on !!!
The painted neck is a major reason why I haven't bought an MTM1
BUT THE PAINT DOESNT GET STICKY LIKE SOME RGT I'VE TRIED... AT LEAST FOR THE 20 MIN I SPENT WITH IT...
At least with the MTM2 you can take the neck off and sand it easily.
+10000, ONLY 2 GUITARS CAME TO MY COUNTRY AND THE ONE I TRIED HAD A NICE JOB ON THE FRETS, AT LEAST THEY DONT HURT WHEN YOU PLAY... HAHAHA
ugh,personally i'd rather go for an RG.
ME TOO MAN, BUT THIS GUITAR FEELS LIKE A RARE RG... THE REVERSE HEADSTOCK AND OVERALL TONE SOUNDS EVEN MORE METALISH COMPARED IT WITH AN RG
Unfortunately there isn't an RG with an Edge FX and a reversed headstock
Besides, I've got a lot of respect for Mick and wouldn't mind lining his pockets in return for his signature model.
THE RG'S THAT HAVE FIX BRIDGE ARE SIMPLE AND DONT SOUND THAT GOOD... SURE IS SIMPLE TO UPGRADE THEM BUT THAT IS NOT A MUST WHEN THE TONE OF THE GUITAR RIGHT OF THE SHELF IS MORE THAN GOOD...
I think the person you should be listening to is yourself, not all of us. If YOU found it quite comfortable and nice sounding, and you've got the money to buy one then go get one!
But since you've asked, I've played a couple in the stores and it seemed like a nice instrument, although the first one I played had shocking fretwork. If you find one with good fretwork then go for it.
THANX MAN FOR YOUR OPINION, BUT I WANTED SOME FEEDBACK... THERE ARENT MANY REVIEWS ON THE NET LATELY... MAYBE COZ IS A NEW MODEL AND NOT TO MANY PEOPLE HAVE IT...
