The MBM2 is a solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2009. It is a signature model of Matt Bachand, guitarist of the American heavy metal band Shadows Fall. The MBM2 was introduced in 2009 as a mass market version of Bachand's MBM1.
The MBM2 is based on the RGA42. It features a mahogany body with binding and special signature skull graphic bolted to a maple custom neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with small off-set dot position markers. Components include dual active EMG humbucking pickups and a fixed bridge.
The MBM2 was visually updated for 2010 with a silver finish and black hardware but without fingerboard binding. It was discontinued after 2010.
