The MM1 is an AZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2018. It is a signature model for German guitarist Martin Miller. It is produced in Japan by Fujigen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The MM1 features a 4mm thick AAA-grade flamed maple top on an African mahogany body bolted to an S-Tech roasted maple neck with an S-Tech roasted maple fingerboard with 24 stainless steel frets, abalone dot position markers and luminescent side dots. Components include a pair of Seymour Duncan Hyperion humbucking pickups, a T1802 two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with titanium saddles made by Gotoh, an oil-impregnated bone nut, an angled output jack and Gotoh locking tuning machines with height-adjustable posts.

The MM1 employs a dyna-MIX10 switching system (see diagram below) with an "Alter switch" toggle which allows the user to access ten distinct tones. The Alter switch appears to tap one coil of the humbucker (as opposed to a traditional coil-split which disables one coil completely) to achieve a sound similar to a single coil without the drop in output which typically accompanies a coil split.

The MM1 was was introduced at the 2018 NAMM show.
