used to PGM100re heel........

All of my Ibanez are this new PGM100RE was a bit of a different feel for a while. After a few weeks,I'm feeling really at home on this original heel joint. In fact, I think it has helped by forcing me to position my hand correctly when playing high in keeping my hand supinated with my thumb behind the neck. It has actually improved my upper fret playing on my AANJ Ibanez too,,, by using this correct hand position. I was getting into the habit of switching my palm of my hand more perpendicular to the floor when playing higher up, and it was impeding my upper fret playing and bending. In order to navigate around this neck heel on my PGM 100RE, I have to keep my palm supinated at all times with my thumb behind the neck. Wow,,,this guitar has made me a better player. With my smaller hands, I'm finding I can play way up there easily as long as I use proper form . I was watching Doug Aldrich on my Whitesnake home video recently .....and when he goes up high on his Les Pauls, he really keeps good form to play those notes. And it is really way more difficult on a Les, as I still have mine to compare.

Re: used to PGM100re heel........

There something about the square heel's that I LOVE...

I have a couple of AANJ guitars that feel great as well but I prefer the OG square heels...

I know I am not the only one...
