He mixed rock, blues and new classical into the fast picking with beautiful melody and unique style, and his major skills are string jumping and speed picking. He emerged combined with band Racer X and was the former guitar performer in the prominent band Metallica. When the band dismissed, he got a solo career and then reformed Racer X, mainly showcasing Blues and Rock style. His key instruments are Ibane PGM series guitars.





PGM300 belongs to PGM series and is the signature type of the renowned US guitar player Gilbert.



PGM300 Features


This version features wizard neck, basswood body, maple fretboard, DiMarzio pickups, double-locking tremolo system. It is the 2nd model, and also the last product which includes this tremolo system in PGM series guitar. Concurrently, it also has Paul Gilbert's signature F-hole sound control.




In 2003, Gilbert substituted the wiring board of the pgm300 by using a fixed one himself and altered it being the hard-tail, which actually is the later creation pgm301. The most primitive pgm300 was discontinued in 2004. It is the version with the longest output line in the pgm series.



PGM 300 RE


PGM300re was launched to be a reissue model of the PGM300 on its 20th anniversary in 2009.



To be one within the PGM series, and also a Paul Gilbert signature product, PGM301 was manufactured in the year 2003 in line with the PGM300. All is the same as the PGM300, except the bridge and pickguard setting.


Paul Gilbert talked about pgm300,"The PGM300 is probably the PGM guitar that I played the most out of any of them. It was really the workhorse, the most punished guitar, the one that took the most abuse and kept on going. I used it during the peak of Mr. Big's success in Japan, when we were headlining three nights at the Buddokhan. It always sounded great. To me, one of the unique things about that guitar, for whatever reason, was that it cleaned up really nice. Whenever I would use the 5-way switch and click it over one click to use the single coil and the split-coil humbucker together and turn the volume on the guitar down, I'd get this really nice glassy sound. I remember playing that guitar on the Tonight Show, doing a song called "Just Take My Heart" that had a really clean sound. It just sounded beautiful on that. There was no channel switching necessary. I just plugged it into a cranked up Marshall, turned the volume down, and got this beautiful, clear, shimmering sound. Of course when you crank it up, it was total metal. So that was the guitar that my hands have spent the most time on out of any of the PGMs. I think my chest cavity has modified to its shape. It's a very very dear guitar to me. I've spent so much time with it. I love it. You will, too. The PGM300."


He also commented PGM301,"So after years and years and years of playing my PGM guitars, I started to come up with my favorite small details. The PGM301 is the culmination of these details. For one thing and probably the most unique about it, it's non-trem. There's no tremolo bar on it. It does have that really solid feel of a non-tremolo bridge. To me, it's a little more Spartan of a guitar. It makes me have big calluses on my hand. I think I improve as a player from having to get the vibrato with my left hand rather than using the whammy. It's a very simple guitar, but the important work on the guitar is done on the things that matter most. The action is great, the tone is great, and the playability is great. It's a really reliable workhorse of a guitar. It always sounds great. I've done a million shows with that one. In fact, the PGM300 is really just a PGM301. It just doesn't look as good, because I cut it up and did all those modifications to it. The PGM301 is the result. It's nice and clean. Enjoy the PGM301. That's the one I play. Thank you so much."



We studied hard upon the above described features and replicated this instrument as similar as possible to the initial instrument. All woods are exactly the same as the original ones, like body wood, neck wood and fretboard wood (all high quality woods). The defaulting pick-ups we utilised are Wilkinson pickups, which is cost effective and quality assured.


Since we batch manufactured the instruments with a small number, the price, when compared with those custom built ones, is very much more cost-effective. But simultaneously, the supply is limited. Should you really like this guitar, please make contact with us immediately.
