Ibanez Paul Gilbert Model PGM 30

Hi everyone! I'm new to this site and, let me start off by saying that I think it's great. But, on to the point of this post. I'm looking for a new guitar, and I have about 650.00 to spend. I was gonna get a PGM 30, but then I read( on the Racer-X site) a post which said the PGM 30 wasn't that great. Can someone please help me. I own a Rg 470 in sangria, and I like it alot. Would I just be paying the extra money because it has Pauls name on it, or is it a good guitar. Should I invest my money in a different Ibanez model. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dan

Get an rg 500 series or a gilbert model with the edge tremolo system. Its simply a better higher quality guitar, due to the fact that the edge is the best tremolo made by man.

Problem with the PGM30 are the pups and the bridge. The Infinity pu's and the lo-trs are only fitted there to reduce the costs for the guitar but they're NOT WORTHY!
The looks are killer, but if you want to turn it into a decent guitar you will have to put Dimarzio ToneZones (Pauls favorites...) in and at least a Edge Bridge....

IMO a higher end RG is more value for money, you can try a secondhand nice guitar too....
