Ibanez Reissues PGM1000RE Paul Gilbert Signature, Asks Fans to Vote for Next Reissue


Bensalem, PA (March 14, 2009) --At Ibanez, 2009 truly is the Year of Paul Gilbert.  Ibanez has now reissued his original 1989 signature model as the PGM100RE 20TH ANNIVERSARY model. Plus Ibanez is urging fans to vote for which of Paul’s radical-appearance signature models—some of which were originally only available in Japan—should be the next Paul Gilbert Signature Reissue.

Available for order now is the limited edition PGM100RE with its unmistakable combination of metallic blue body complemented by pink painted F-holes and pink DiMarzio pickups. The PGM100RE is limited to just 300 worldwide, with approximately just 150 of those slated for the United States. The Japanese-made PGM100RE features U.S.A.-made DiMarzio pickups, a lightweight basswood body fitted with the Ibanez new Super Wizard (same thin, fast and flat dimensions as the original 1987 Wizard, but even stronger), the original Edge locking trem and a deluxe hardshell case. The list price is $2666.65.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
