why would you want to do that when you can just attach a new material and adjust it as you like?

well, mayas default lambert is horrbible at displaying models, and i always change my material after modeling if at all. i just think having a different material would be better when beginning a model. and its a bit too much trouble making the same material everytime i open maya

if you make a material you want to use often, export it and import it whenever you want.
