I would love to have that custom green one that he has. If it only had one bridge pickup, a complete floating locking bridge (kind of pointless to have a fixed one if you ask me)and no inlays ( or something tasteful).Then it would no way resemble his except for the color lol.

That custom green he has is pretty sick, and Ibanez should probably get on making us fans some of those.
but yeah the inlay is a little retarded unless you're actually mick thompson.
anyone know what gauge strings come on the MTM2?

You c an have a professional luthier remove the inlay and fill it in, but it's a tricky and expensive procedure...

I have a friend that doesn't like korn, but he bought a K-7 and paid to have the inlay removed.... its substantially smaller than the MTM inlay, and it cost him around $500

The first years it was made in Korea, but now when Korea is out of the picture its probably Indonesia. If they would have switched to Japan the pricetag would be the double.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to have a good professional luthier replace the complete fretboard instead of only the inlay. Than you can have any inlay you want (or non offcoarse). I don't know if with such a large inlay it would come out good when removed and filled in.

Agreed.

I don't know if it would be cheaper, but the results would be SIGNIFICANTLY better. I've seen dot replacements that haven't gone well, so I can only imagine what that giant "SEVEN" would look like. Though the biggest factor here is the skill of the luthier.

You'll have to find a dealer either in Russia or a surrounding country willing to ship to your location. This forum is for the USA distributor (HUSA) for Ibanez guitars, not their official head office. Try searching for dealers in Russia and the EU that will ship to your current location. Even if you find a dealer in the USA willing to ship to you the shipping, fees, and taxes will be very costly.

Good luck bro!

With all the taxes, fees, duty, etc. shipping a guitar valued at $1500 in the USA will quickly come closer to the $2000 that you're describing, possibly even more. I've shipped several guitars to England, France, Germany, and Australia, and I promise you it'll wind up being just about the same to just buy one locally. The USA is babied in the fact that guitars cost cheaper on the user end due to the fact we don't pay VAT or other high importation taxes. Yes, the guitar will be cheaper, but the other fees will make it just as expensive but FAR more of a hassle.

Trust me, just buy it in Russian.

Let's say you buy it for the amount of $1500 on eBay. You'll then have to pay about $150 to get it packed, insured, and shipped. There's a risk it could get damaged, lost, etc. Then you have to pay a 30% import tax, which will bring your total to $2100, not to mention the added time and potential for damage in transit, and let's not forget the fees for Paypal or money order to pay via eBay.

Wouldn't you just rather buy it for $2000 locally and save the time and money?
