- A legendary rock guitarist, a legendary guitar
Built for speed
Ibanez built the PGM100RE's neck and neck joint for speed, balance, and easy access to the entire fingerboard. The traditional neck joint has a metal plate with four screws, yet this tilt joint still offers easy upper fret access. Paul likes this original neck joint for its tonal characteristics.
Built to shred, and then some
Dimarzio PAF-Pro humbuckers and a true single coil FS-1 are the mighty combination for Paul's vast array of tones, which run the gamut from searing to shredding to crystal clear. All of great tones Paul conjured from his PGM can be dialed in on this reissue, thanks to the onboard Ibanez Sprit-5 switching system.
A classic trem design you can depend on
The PGM100RE boasts an ultra-stable Edge tremolo bridge that's built to handle even the most radical divebombing runs. The legendary original Edge tremolo bridge was one of the most reliable double-locking systems for '80s shred guitarists. Paul was a heavy whammy user in that period, and this faithful reissue reflects his classic setup.
A legendary rock guitarist, a legendary guitar
From his proto-shredding days with Racer X through his work with Mr. Big to his solo work and an array of other projects, Paul Gilbert has remained the consummate "guitarist's guitarist." His ability to range from pop and rock structures to metal, blues, and even classical and funk styles makes Paul go far beyond his reputation as a formidable shredder — but shred he certainly can. His Ibanez PGM100RE is built for speed as well as tone, and it gives you the unique "Gilbert-ized" looks to match.
