Only Cort PGM should be the PGM30. Looks like a PGM100.

All PGMs are Fujigen guitars. F-serial numbered.

That one in question is a non-Ibanez replica.

That's incorrect.

And there are some low end PGMs that came in the PGM100 colour scheme.

PGM3

That's the Korean made PGM3 so it's legit.

It's legit but it's a very cheap guitar, just in case you're thinking you're getting a great deal.

RG2550 has a better trem, better pickups and it is a MIJ Prestige Ibanez.
So yes.

Edit: Actually, the PGM3 is basically an RG350, with reversed headstock and the f-holes.

A used PG3 can't be more than $300.

I totally stand corrected. I thought the PGM line began at the 100 series, which is Fujigen made. My apologies for the wrong info.
