PGM100RE or PGM300RE?

Hey guys!

I'm going to buy a Paul Gilbert signature model soon, but I'm having problem deciding on what guitar. At the moment I can't seem to choose between the 100RE and the 300RE. So basicly I'm looking for input from you guys!

PS! Wish I had the money to buy both!

Re: PGM100RE or PGM300RE?

Do you like white or do you like blue?

That'd be my guide, basically you should ask yourself if you like the crazy bright blue and pink one or the classy black and white one; I think that, realistically, that's the biggest difference between them.

both are great guitars and have other differences like ring mounted vs direct mounted pickups, maple vs rosewood neck, AANJ vs slope heel and so on, but you can easily get used to those.

Re: PGM100RE or PGM300RE?

The main issue, besides colour, is do you prefer rosewood fretboards, or maple fretboards?that's where the main tonal difference will be.

Personally I prefer the maple fretboard, but the 100RE looks fantastic.
Meh, guess it'll be the 300 You have any suggestions from what website I should order it?

You're looking at the list price. Trust me, Rich's prices are comparable to all others but you do get the option of getting the best setup in the world if you pay extra for the platinum package setup.

If you ordered from Rich, just sit back, relax and worry none. He's the best in the biz for Ibanez.

Which one did you get? I originally got the 100, and decided that I could live without the 300, but.... that didn't last. Now I've got both, and honestly, either way you go you'll be thrilled. I've pretty much forsaken my 7 strings solely because of the PGMs. It's a disease that you can't get rid of .
