Just got a PGM500-CA
Wow... maybe it is a small world!
All in all, it's a pretty sweet axe. I'd never seen any PGM in person before. I always thought the f-holes look goofy in pictures, but they didn't look too bad in person. And the candy apple red finish is really sweet... just enough sparkle to make it stand out, but not so much that it's gawdy. And gold hardware on red always looks bad-a$$. The only real wear is on the saddles, but I was thinking about replacing the stock saddles with graphite saddles anyway.
Certainly it's better off with a black TZ than a pink Paf Pro! I'm sure I'll be able to trade the black TZ for a creme one with enough searching around on the net. I'm considering trading the Jem SC for something with a little more meat, like a Blue Velvet, just so I have that extra push over the cliff.
If nothing else, this should keep me occupied until I can save up the coin for a PGM90 or PGM10! At this point, I imagine this guitar will probably come to every gig since I always like to have a fixed bridge guitar for a backup.
