30 Years of shred!!!
We are currently in a period of time, where many Ibanez artists celebrate anniversaries due to the companies history and influence in the iconic 80’s. Shredmaster and Mr. Big guitarist Paul Gilbert celebrates his 30th anniversary with a really special model, sporting the body and neck design of his very first Ibanez signature.
The PGM333 comes with three DiMarzio PG-13 mini humbuckers, which have been designed for Paul who seems to use this pickup format most of the time recently. Further specs are:
- African Mahogany body
- 5-piece Maple/Walnut neck
- Ebony fretboard
- 24 Jumbo frets
- Gotoh MG-T locking tuners
- Gotoh GTC101 bridge
- Volume control, 3-way lever switch
- Gold hardware
It wouldn’t be a PGM model, if it didn’t have the classic f-hole designs on top, so of course this one does.
Now that I think about it…I was just 7 years old when Paul started his relationship with Ibanez Guitars. 30 years with one company definitely says a lot about the player and the company.
Current info says that the PGM333 will be available in late June this year and should sit around 2600€.
All info on Ibanez’ website and oh…did I mention that he also talked about this new model in a recent video? Check it out below!
