PGM20TH - Paul gets the most attention of any endorser this year, and he should as he celebrates his 20th Anniversary in collaboration with Ibanez. The PGM100 was Paul's first signature design, and a fitting reissue at a price that won't break the bank. In fact this is the most reasonably priced artist Anniversary model of all time, maybe Paul himself had something to do with that. Of course it gets the same modern improvements the other recent reissues have gotten. 1 piece Maple PGM Super Wizard Prestige neck, Basswood body, Jumbo frets on a rosewood board, Pearl sharkfin inlay, Original EDGE bridge, DiMarzio PAF Pro pickups with a FS-1T mid, old style plate joint as original using the current JS numbered plates. Available in JB [Jewell Blue]. $2666.65 List Price. Includes J Craft case.
PGMFRM1 - Long expected, Ibanez does produce a production version of Paul's latest custom guitar, nicknamed the Fireman. I believe this is the only Korina bodied guitar Ibanez has ever produced. It will be an extremely limited edition with 50 pieces total. 45 in SSS pickup arrangement [18 scheduled for HUSA] and 5 in HH that will be kept in the Japan market, probably to be sold by Lottery as they did with the PGM10th. These will be built by the same little Custom Shop that build the Artcore Twins and JSBDG's, and will come with the goodies shown [and described] in the last 2 pictures. 3 piece Korina/Bubinga neck, Ball bat thick at around 24-27mm, Korina body, Medium frets, Area 67 pickups, Gibraltar bridge. $9333.32 List Price.
