Re: Is this common for a PGM30?
The thing is, who knows what goes on in the Korean factory? Maybe they painted it the wrong color at first, maybe someone who worked there was doing a self custom and got caught then arrested, who knows, there could be a million explanations, they don't exactly have the best quality control in some of those places - I've seen it in the Korean factory for the company I work for.
It certainly looks like a legit Ibanez body from the pics, the fake ones you see on evilbay are obviously different. I got a PGM30 before with a crappy string thru TRS thingy, so people change the bridges on those all the time. They are INF pups and cosmo pups rings, so those things are correct. I say just strip the whole thing and make yourself a unique guitar out of it, or do what you were saying, do an inlay f-hole, that would be pretty cool.
