Ibanez PGM100RE vs 3570z prestige??

I was pretty set on getting the 3570z (or 3770z) prestige, and then i came across the PGM100re. Whats your opinion on which is better? In this case price doesn't matter for me. I play everything from metal and rock to very mellow music.

Personal opinion is going to range, and the biggest thing here is to weigh up do you want to play a sig guitar, if that does not bother you I don't think you can look past the PGM. Just keep in mind the PGM does not have a tone knob which is a setback in my opinion and is about the only reason I don't own one my self.

I personaly would be more inclined to get the PGM100RE. It has my preferred pickups stock (PAF Pro) and it has the added benefit of an original Edge. Not having a tone knob is a very small set back, one I could overlook. I also like the blue and pink color. First time I ever saw one was in this book DiMarzio sent me years ago when I ordered some pickups from them. I thought it was really cool then, so there's some nostalgia factor too.

The heel on the PGM100RE was kind of a pain in the ass for me.

yea, i would go with the 3570. we all have an original edge right? sometimes its good for a change. and it has the AANJ and its not a signature. and you can be more original with and feel better about customizing the 3570. just my opinion though. im probably the minority though

I would have to go with the 3570. I am also of the opinion that a signature guitar, while undeniably awesome, bears the stamp of another guitarist (in this case, the guitarist, but still) and may be creatively stifling. Unless you are unlike me, and can unfetter yourself from this being Paul Gilbert's guitar and not yours. Just my two cents, though. Both guitars sound ridiculously good, so it's a win either way.

Yes he is, among other things, the guy with great guitars. He played guitar in a band called Racer X, and then he was in Mr. Big, and has numerous solo albums as well (not to mention all his allstar cover bands). If you aren't familiar with his catalog, for instrumentals I'd suggest Scarified (from Spaceship One DVD) and Fuzz Universe (from the album Fuzz Universe). For music with lyrics, I'd suggest Alligator Farm or Every Hot Girl is a Rockstar. Don't take my above comment as a knock on his guitars, but rather my insight into Signature guitars as an entity.

Back on topic,

I stand by my above post on behalf of the 3570z Prestige.

if your really into the PGM I say go with it! Ive been going back and forth between saving up for a J Custom and a EGEN18. I know its crazy to even compare the two...but Im really really drawn to the EGEN18...have been since I laid eyes on it. So...I say get the guitar that you really want, regardless signature or not.

PGM felt too RG'ish to me. Like they took a 770 and toyed with it a little bit.

didnt feel like the JEM to RG conversion, felt like I picked up another RG. I dont know how to completely explain it, sorry.


I've yet to play a prestige so I wont compare it to my speculations.

Cost plays a factor in this decision too, Id think.
