Get Ready to Shred, Paul Gilbert Style

Paul Gilbert is an ace guitarist who's always spot on with his tone and technique, and his signature Ibanez solidbody electrics are spec'd to facilitate that level of uncompromised performance. The FRM250MF Limited Edition rocks an eye-catching (and comfortable) "Fireman" mahogany body with a gorgeous flame maple top. The lightning-fast neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard and medium frets. A trio of DiMarzio pickups in an HSH configuration serve up a universe of tone, while the Tight Tune bridge and stoptail deliver prodigious sustain. Pick up an Ibanez FRM250MF and get ready to shred.

Ibanez Paul Gilbert FRM250MF Limited-edition Solidbody Electric at a Glance:
  • A serious axe wielder's instrument of destruction
  • Two "stealth" humbuckers and a single-coil deliver a humongous tonal range
  • Paul's custom set-in neck joint feels amazing; enhances sustain
A serious axe wielder's instrument of destruction

If you're after a guitar that looks as wicked as it sounds, you're on the right page. The Fireman body shape alone is enough to convey instant attitude. Top it with gorgeous flame maple, and you've got one arresting-looking guitar. (It's quite comfortable, too.) In fact, the Ibanez Paul Gilbert FRM250MF is one of the sharpest-looking guitars we've seen recently here at Sweetwater - and we see a lot of guitars. Trust us when we say that it's a serious axe wielder's instrument of destruction. Just what you'd expect from Paul Gilbert, right?

Two "stealth" humbuckers and a single-coil deliver a humongous tonal range

Pickup-wise, the FRM250MF Paul Gilbert Limited Edition guitar largely retains the look of Paul's three single-coil standard Fireman axe, but to provide serious beef, Paul snuck in a pair of "stealth" humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions - stealthiness courtesy of zebra-coiled DiMarzio Air Classics. At Sweetwater, we adore the sound of late-1950s humbuckers. Obviously, so does DiMarzio. For their Air Classics, they nailed the sweetness of the original pickups, but used reliable modern Alnico 5 magnets, reducing string pull to increase sensitivity and sustain. The result is a three-dimensional, almost vocal sound that rockets off the string and rings true as it sustains. The response to your pick attack is intense, and the harmonics are glorious. Add a DiMarzio Area 67 single-coil in the middle position and 5-way switching, and you're talking serious tonal versatility.

Paul's custom set-in neck joint feels amazing; enhances sustain

If you're looking to lock down your tone, the Ibanez Paul Gilbert FRM250MF is your kind of axe. This instrument delivers serious sustain, courtesy of its special set-in neck joint and Tight Tune bridge/stoptail assembly. Paul Gilbert worked long and hard with the Ibanez luthiers to achieve a neck joint that felt just right, while maximizing string vibration transfer and sustain. You'll love the feel of this neck joint when you're fretting up high. And the tone - that will speak for itself the moment you pick up this very special guitar.
