Post Looking for PGM/RG!
Hi

Ive finally decided that a PGM is the guitar for me. Ive been looking at that PGM 301 on ebay for 950$ but i dont know if i wanna go for the white one. An RG would also be cool.

So my only demands are:

RG or PGM
Fixed bridge
HSH

Any suggestions? (on RG model that is)

I also wanna sell my LTD m-1000 with red f-holes. Any idea what i could get for it? Its the first edition one thats solid black and cost around 3000$ when it was released. (made see trough and cheaper in second edition) Its got an original floyd rose and EMG81/81 pups

RG470FX is one of the only hardtail HSH RGs that I can think of at the moment, you might be better just getting a PGM for what you want.

You have to decide which features are most important to you. Ibanez offers few RG's with fixed bridges in general, and very few have a HSH pickup configuration. There are plenty of HSH models with trems.

Personally i would just get a PGM. I prefer the control layout on the PGMs over the standard RG layout.

i would like a pgm too, but they are so hard to get, and my budget is around 1000$

And also, i dont want the 3, 30, 300, 301, 600, 700 and 900.

Fav is the 200 one.

The 100 and 400 don't meet your fixed bridge criteria. :wink:

That leaves the 200, 500, the super rare 550, 800, and anniversary models.

With that budget the 500 is probably your best option. The 200's are hard to find and will probably be over your budget. You never know though every long while someone finds a killer deal. If you get lucky you might be able to find an 800.

If you are patient enough a PGM in your price range will pop up eventually. You never know when one will pop up.

You can also save a bit more money for a couple months. That'd raise your price range and you'd be able to get the more expensive ones too.

Although, everyone I talk to about saving their money doesn't want to do that :lol: .

What justice said is right. I've seen 200's that have cracks and dents and are over 1,000 bucks. I'd imagine a mint condition axe will cost more, unless someone offers you a great deal. If i were you, I'd save up for the 200 though, cause that one's also my favorite. I like the Anniversary models as well, but they're even more expensive.
