What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain
Push/pull coil splitting Switch between humbucking and single-coil tones
Maple neck Bright tone, full sustain and strength
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
Designed in collaboration with Chris Miller, the innovative lead guitarist for British rock band You Me At Six, the Ibanez CMM1 Chris Miller Signature delivers boatloads of tone! This axe has a dark mahogany body attached to a CMM one-piece maple neck with a rosewood fretboard of 22 medium frets. At the neck, this baby houses a hot Ibanez SS-1 single-coil pickup that slices through the air like a sharp knife, and a dynamic Ibanez Standard bridge humbucker with a push/pull single-coil tone switch for single-coil pickup settings. It all adds up to hearty helping of hot, biting tone that's always ready to punch its way through the mix -- just the ticket for Miller's edgy rock sound.

See what Chris Miller has to say about his signature guitar:


Designed with Miller's '82 Ibanez Artist in Mind

Chris Miller has been in the Ibanez game for a while, and when he had the chance to have his very own signature model, he wanted to do it right. The CMM1's design is based of off Miller's Ibanez '82 Artist axe -- a guitar he's held close to his heart over the years. Its cool singular look and fantastic playability make this guitar a steal.

SS-1 Single-coil and Coil-tappable Ibanez Standard Humbucker Pickups

When it comes to tone, this guitar packs quite a punch for your signal. Your SS-1 single-coil neck pickup has a hot and sharp bite to it that breaks up with a P-90-like sound when you push it. Your Ibanez Standard bridge humbucker complements your SS-1 in dynamic fashion. Your bridge tone is fat and full, and with a push/pull tone knob, you can switch this baby into single-coil mode for more pickup combination settings and tones.

Comfortable CMM Maple Neck of 22 Frets

Your CMM one-piece maple neck is fast and easy for chord changes and speedy runs. 22 medium frets offer a comfortable feel for your fingers, and maple offers a nice warm resonance for your notes as your playing transfers over to your axes dark-sounding mahogany body.

Secure and Cool-Looking Tight-tune Bridge with Thru-body Hardtail

Holding your game down in secure and stylistic fashion are your chrome Tight-tune bridge and through-body hardtail. Your Tight-tune bridge secures your intonation and enhances your sustain nicely, and your thru-body hardtail holds your strings tightly, adding more sustain and resonance.

Features:

- Mahogany body
- CMM one-piece maple neck

Product Description

Check out the Ibanez CMM1-IV electric guitar made with input from guitarist Chris Miller of the British rock band, You Me At Six, voted Best British Band of 2011 by Kerrang! Magazine, this band has been lighting up the British charts with their alt/punk/indie rock sound since 2008. The group's dynamic lead guitarist, Chris Miller, had the opportunity to play a prototype of the new Roadcore series and was so impressed he eagerly collaborated with Ibanez to create his own signature model.

Chris had some distinctive ideas and the result is a signature model that is uniquely his own. The Roadcore shape Mahogany body is finished in a smooth, creamy, Ivory and as with the original Roadcore, it has a slim Maple neck with a vintage style high gloss finish. It also includes the Rosewood fingerboard, Pearl dot inlays and Medium frets, but that's where the similarities end. The CMM1 electronics feature a Std. SS-1 single coil neck pickup, while a Std. H bridge pickup with a push/pull tap control gives you a single coil option in the bridge position as well.

The result is an axe that can do searing leads, fat power chords and deliver a chunky, "spank" rhythm as funky as any single coil guitar you've ever experienced. Each Guitar comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Chris Miller.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A nice change from the ibanez norm."
Sound: The stock pickups on this axe are nice but are definitely something that you want to change out. They'll last a bit and they're completely usable, but they're not anything extraordinary. Taking into account all of the woods anyway, it sounds amazing. As is Ibanez tradition the stock pickups in this guitar really do well with most distortions. Doesn't mean that won't sound good clean, (It sounds good clean, the p90 in particular) It's just that it doesn't seem to be its primary use. Feature: The tone of the mahogany body, gloss maple neck with a rosewood fretboard really shows. It will give a very warm tone in some places but you can mess around with it on the setting for whatever amp you're using. It has speed grip bell knobs, that is the coolest thing I have ever heard and I love that it's on this guitar. The rest of the components are just ibanez standard stock so that they can give you a guitar with the best materials for a more fair price. Ease of Use: After a setup, the instrument is extremely playable and surprisingly comfortable. It's also pretty easy to get great sounds from the stock components but still, think about a pickup switch. Quality: It's very well made and super solid. It seems like it will last a long while. Value: In this price range the guitar is competing with a list of other products. For the genre it assumes that you play (relative to You Me At Six) it is definitely the best value for the genre. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to deal with support so no comment. The Wow Factor: The color is a cream white that is just amazing in person. It's not quite typical cream but it seems Chris Miller had a hand in picking the right kind of cream. The offset shape combined with the color is definitely appealing to people who don't just want the typical Ibanez metal axe. Overall: Ibanez has decided to go into the market of offset guitars. Read my specifics and you'll see how I think they did with this one.
Style of Music: Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Post-Hardcore, Pop Punk, Modern Rock, and Alt Rock.
