Hmmm, I aint heard nothing.
But it is interesting.....

If they did split, which I doubt they ever would, who would he go to??

From what I understand, Paul is HUGE in Japan and outsells other signature models, so it wouldn't make sense (and cents ;-)).

Seeming as how Paul is the kind of guy who, when recently doing some shows with a Zeppelin tribute band, searched for older Ibanez models that looked like Jimmy Page's Les Pauls, etc...well, I don't see Paul parting ways with Ibanez as being very likely at all

hmm where did you hear that?
It doesn´t sound very likely to me.
And I really hope he stays with Ibanez.
Forever.

a couple weeks ago, a guy has told me that he heard that Ibanez is gonna go bankrupt. i said: "Before Ibanez goes bankrupt, the sun will become a black hole".

'nuff said.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA

Ibanez going bankrupt?? Thats hilarious.
Did this guy have a Fender or Gibson tattoo on him somewhere? He must have something against Iby. Anyone who has there head poked anywhere in the world of guitars knows Ibanez is one of the top brands. Safe to say top 5. Right?

And judging by that ad and how popular the PGM's are, it would be a very bad move to stop making them. I understand if Paul wanted to leave then that would be the end of it, but Ibanez is to good to him.
