Ibanez PGM80P NT PAUL GILBERT SIGNATURE Series Electric Guitar (Natural)

£1,079.00

Description

The Ibanez PGM series of guitars have been running for 25 years now behind shred genius and drill pick master Paul Gilbert. The PGM80P-NT is the latest in a long line of different models and takes it all the way back to the PGM800 from 2006 with a unique design and some new trimmings that fit Paul's preferences in 2015.

Based off of the PGM800 the PGM80P has the same ash body and finish from the original 1996 run though this time with black F hole paint and more up to date hardware. While the body is made of ash the neck has a new PGM premium profile with 5 piece maple and walnut construction that keeps the neck strong while keeping a nice bright tone. What really makes this different when compared to the original PGM800 is the fact that it has 22 frets rather than 24. This may seem like a downgrade but it actually improves resonance and sustain as it means you can then have a large neck plate.

Hot and ready to rock you have a set of DiMarzio PAF Master humbuckers directly mounted to the guitar. These pickups may not be the first one to come mind when you think of Paul Gilbert but for his extremely responsive playing style you need the clarity of pickups like these. They are beautifully crisp and clear with a lot of punch that really makes your leads pop.

The trem is back! While in recent years we saw Paul Gilbert using less of his tremolo and instead getting flixed bridge models. This guitar is fitted with the amazing Wilkinson WV6 Tremolo bridge; A vintage style tremolo that has a bit more movement that allows you to go a little bit crazy. Keeping your tuning in check when you do decide to get the dive bombs going you have a set of the awesome Gotoh Locking machineheads that will not let you down.
