Got the PGM301 out today :)

Hi everyone. I decided to get the PGM301 out today for a couple of vids. This is still my most favourite guitar ever. Hopefully gonna find a PGM500ca on the bay soon

By the way. I bought the 401 and couldn't get on with the medium frets at all which was a shame because it looked awesome.

Thanks

Yeah i've had that PGM since early 2004 (the longest I've kept a guitar) so it has the old PGM profile neck before they changed them to the normal prestige profile. I have never tried one with the prestige neck.

Has anyone played both???

I've had both - and I like them both. The prestige neck's larger feel is cool because I've got large hands- but the original profile feels familiar after years of playing....

Cool I have always wondered if there is someone out there with both.

Do they sound the same?? Surely the prestige neck must alter the tone slightly??

Well - It's hard to say. Maple is brighter to begin with.. so it's not really apples to apples. And my 500 is unusually light weight - it's much more resonant than my 301 was, but the 301 had a sharper initial attack and better sustain.

Of course, by the time a ran them through 100 watts of cranked EL34 with a ton of gain, they sounded pretty much the same!

Cool I'm desperately looking for a 500 now. I was gonna set my sights for the 800 but the 800 is sooooo hard to get now that it just seems almost impossible.

Ibanez should really consider bringing back the PGM. Even if they have to change the name due to PG not using it

I'm doing online lessons with PG through the Artistworks site and he will break out his old guitars now and then which is pretty cool to see. He also breaks out a Rick bass and a Robin Trower Strat every once in a while.
