New PGM!...............but... - PGM3...yes PGM3, not PGM30 o
Today, I went into the music store here in HK. The guitar that caught my attention was a PGM.
The color scheme is same as PGM100, blue with pink F-holes!
I thought that was a PGM30JB (which only available in Japan)
Then I look at the price tag, it said PGM3 $2800 (HK$).
PGM3? Did they miss out the 0? $2800? The white PGM30 is selling for $6000.
So I turned the guitar around and looked at the headstock, it's really PGM 3, not PGM30.
I dunno what's the different between the PGM30 JB and the PGM3 JB
They both have Ibanez pickups made in Korea. I don't know what is the wood on the PGM3...basswood maybe?
The trem is still LoTrsII. The only difference between them is that the PGM3 comes with black hardwares while PGM30 with cosmo black hardwares.
I always want to own a PGM100 (I love that color scheme.......) but don't like the Original neck joint.
I've been thinking of buying a PGM30JB then hot rod it (block/change the trem, Dimarzio pickups, scallop the neck)
Maybe the PGM3 is a better choice? Since they are both Korean Ibanez.......I don't think the quality PGM30 is much higher than PGM3........but I can save HK$3200!......
btw, I can't find any information about this on Ibanez website, even the HK Ibanez website
