Ibanez Celebrate 20 Years Of Paul Gilbert

And so do we! Here´s the official release regarding the ultra-limited edition PGM100RE 20th Anniversary model.

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 hard-shell case.

The US list price is $2666.65.
