Guitarist Mike Mushok of the Staind isn't getting just any guitar for his Ibanez signature model--his MMM1 is the first Ibanez production baritone guitar. When Mushok was asked why he wanted a baritone, he replied, "Because it goes to 11. With the baritone guitar's higher neck tension, I can tune down low and play with heavier strings and not have them feel like rubber bands. With a regular guitar, tuning down can become a real nightmare with the guitar going in and out of tune. But with my signature guitar, I can bite into it and play aggressively."
