<P>No, they're not mine. <IMG src="smileys/smiley19.gif" border="0">&nbsp; It would nice if they were though!&nbsp;</P>
<P>The acoustic&nbsp;model&nbsp;is the&nbsp;PGA1000. (Available in Marine Blue and transparent Red.) They're one of the rarest models behind the PGM700 and PGM600.&nbsp;They were made in 98', but&nbsp;weren't available worldwide.&nbsp; --Jason&nbsp;</P>

Guilty....they are mine.<br>
<br>
Yes, the F-Holes have the magical mojo happening for sure.<br>
<br>
The blue and red acoutics are PGA1000's. Ibanez made them briefly when
"To Be With You" was an international hit. Thus, in fact becoming the
true first signature acoustic....not the Euphoria (Vai's green
acoustic). And, yes, even the acoustics have F-Holes. They are on the
bridge.<br>

<P>thanks for the information you guys... <IMG src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0">&nbsp;but i guess i wont be able to get one for myself coz&nbsp;from what&nbsp;Jason says.. they weren't available worldwide and also rare...<IMG src="smileys/smiley19.gif" border="0"> it would've been great to have one though... maybe if i get lucky and someone would sell theirs to me...<IMG src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0"> but the chances would be very slim i guess, coz it's really a great acoustic-electric... <IMG src="smileys/smiley32.gif" border="0">&nbsp;same with the PGM700...&nbsp;that model&nbsp;reminds me of another Paul... <IMG src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0">&nbsp;Paul McCartney's <strong><FONT color=#003399>Hofner Bass</FONT></strong>. don't get me wrong but i really love that violin shaped guitar! it's very classy... <IMG src="smileys/smiley32.gif" border="0">&nbsp;whelp... i guess the two F-holes on the PGM series guitar stands for the <FONT color=#ff0000><strong><EM>F</EM></strong></FONT><FONT color=#0000ff><strong>ast and the</strong> </FONT><strong><FONT color=#ff0000><EM>F</EM></FONT><FONT color=#0000ff>urious</FONT></strong>!!!</P>

It's funny cuz certain models seem to shop up in bunches. I got bith
the acoustics in the same year with in months from each other. Then
I've seen 3 700's in a short time as well as a few 600's.<br>
<br>
The 700 is exactly that, based on Sir Paul McCartney's bass.<br>

I think it was Rich Harris that jokingly said "Never offer Paul Gilbert a signature line" <img src="smileys/smiley36.gif" border="0"> <br>
<br>
You can argue the Jem has more all based on the RG, but Paul goes for
different models with his features incorporated (F-holes, single
volume, no tone, etc)<br>

<P>i&nbsp;like the PGM100 best&nbsp;among the three of Jason's collection.<IMG src="smileys/smiley32.gif" border="0">&nbsp;shark tooth inlay and of course the floyd rose tremolo... <IMG src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0">&nbsp;</P>
<P><IMG src="uploads/cireficulnatas/2006-07-11_041642_pgm30.gif" border="0"></P>
<P>------</P>
<P>Musicology one on one:</P>
<P><IMG src="uploads/cireficulnatas/2006-07-11_041429_K9.jpg" border="0"></P>
<P>'something to discuss on the thread...&nbsp;could anyone here explain why all&nbsp;PGM designs doesn't have tone control? i'm sure Paul Gilbert already&nbsp;answered this already but i can't seem to find any Q/A&nbsp;discussions about the technical specs with the design of his guitar over the web.&nbsp; <IMG src="smileys/smiley36.gif" border="0"></P>
<P>&nbsp;</P>
<P>------</P>
<P>i've noticed that Prestige Ibanez have different logo <IMG src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0"></P>
<P><IMG src="uploads/cireficulnatas/2006-07-11_040416_prestige.jpg" border="0"></P>
<P>they don't have the check mark on their logo anymore and replaced it with the prestige text on top. Now, since PGM's doesn't have any prestige logo on their headstock does that mean that they're below prestige level? <IMG src="smileys/smiley18.gif" border="0"></P>

Paul mentioned he never used the tone control so he just eliminated it (similar to EVH).<br>
<br>
Most, if not all, signature models get the Prestige treatment.<br>

I've got my PGM also, a beautiful PGM500CA model which just screams when played. Love to get a 10th and a 90th (well, one of each would be nice) so we'll see what the future brings.

<P>Hi all,</P>
<P>I need a second opinion&nbsp;for this PGM30 on ebay. If any of you&nbsp;guys could help me with the information&nbsp;necessary to take into consideration it would be of great help before i buy it. is it worth buying it for the priced asked? I've asked the guy for the Serial number to verify if it's really a Japan Made and he gave me just these F9907xxx and told me that he can't reveal the whole Serial Number for some reason.&nbsp;here's the link,</P>
<P><A href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;item=220004171673" target="_blank"> http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/e...Item&amp;item=22000 4171673</A></P>
<P>Thanks in advance.</P>
