Ibanez releases details on this year''s new models at Summer NAMM
JEM and JS left-handed models.
Guitar virtuosos Steve Vai and Joe Satriani have consistently stunned the world with their speed, finesse and jaw-dropping technique. Likewise, Vai and Satriani’s Signature Ibanez guitars, the JEM and JS models, respectively, have legions of fans that swear by these fantastic instruments. One segment of the guitar-buying public, however, has been overlooked until now: lefties!
For 2009, Ibanez is pleased to debut the new, much-anticipated left-handed JEM7VWH and JS1200CAL. The White finish JEM7VWHL has all the great details of its right-handed counterpart: 5pc Maple/Walnut JEM Prestige neck, Edge Pro bridge, Pearl/Abalone vine inlay, DiMarzio Evolution pickups and trademark monkey grip! The Candy Apple finish JS1200CAL features a Maple JS Prestige neck, Edge Pro bridge and DiMarzio PAF-JOE and FRED pickups.
Paul Gilbert Signature PGM300REWH re-issue
From his days in Racer X and Mr. Big to his most recent instrumental work, Paul Gilbert’s mind-bending, warp-speed playing has inspired countless guitarists. With their telltale F-holes, Paul’s signature Ibanez PGM axes, have become legendary for their looks, exceptional sound and feel. For 2009 Summer NAMM, Ibanez is pleased and excited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the PGM line by unveiling the PGM300REWH, a stellar re-issue of the PGM300WH. The decision to re-issue this PGM model was made by a worldwide fan vote, held on line at Ibanez.com.
The PGM300REWH features a super fast 5pc Maple/Walnut Wizard Prestige neck with Maple fretboard, Edge bridge, DiMarzio PAF-PRO pickups in the bridge and neck positions, and a DiMarzio FS-1 in the middle. Needless to say, the wide range of tonal variations and hard rock sounds will blow away even the most blasé of guitar aficionados.
The PGM300REWH is a Limited Production model and only 200 will be made available worldwide. A hardshell case and special 20th Anniversary Certificate are also included.
