Post PGM Guitar for what?
Didn't find anything in search bar, so fun thread go!


Name 5 PGM Models that you want, and what you'd use them for. I'll go first to set an example. Try to be realistic, i.e no FRM1 unless you really think you'll have the 6-7k street price to dish out.


PGM401 - PGM401. Reasoning for it, is I'd use it for Neo-Classical shred. Yngwie Malmsteen, Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, MAB, Joe Stump, etc.

PGM900 - Classic Rock and Blues (With a pickup change, of course). It seems like the perfect 60s/70s guitar.

PGM200 - Glam Rock/Metal ahoy.

PGM301 - Everything, this is my favorite PGM. It can do pretty much everything, with the exception of like, Necrophagist and other extreme things. Regardless, imo the greatest PGM of them all.

PGM 300 - PGM301 with an Edge tremolo. I'd probably swap out the bridge pickup for something more high power and use this for everything that the 301 can't do. (i.e Wammy wanking stuff ((Steve Vai, anyone?)) and extreme metal [Dethklok :D])

Revised for more awesome. Took out 700 cause the 900 is also made out of Mahogany, took out the 800 cause the 401 is pretty similar, and added in a 300 because you always need a trem for something. I'm never gonna own these, am I? :(


Gogogo!

Commenting on your choices:
First you brike your own rule by naming 6 PGM's :wink:

Second IMO the 900 doesn't need a pickup change to meet your classic rock and blues needs. When I won mine on ebay I was already thinking of possible pickup changes before it even reached my door. Once I got it it sounded so good I can't think of anythingI reall y want to change about it.

My answers

PGM900: solid all around rock guitar. It has a warmer thicker tone than most PGM's probably because of the mahogany body.

PGM300: For playing crazy shred music that would need a trem. Pretty much the same as the 301, but it has a trem.

PGM800/401: Aside from the pickups, finish, and slightly different neck profiles these two models have similar specs. If you can name 6 models so can I. :P

PGM400: Its the most strat like spec wise so it would provide me with different tones the basswood and ash models would not.

PGM200: It just looks so damn cool. Unfortunately it doesn't sound a good as the other models IMO.

In order of getting 'em :twisted:

301 - main guitar, as Paul stated - straight out for face melting solos!,

90th HAM - the most beautiful of all the PGMs! (it's FUCKING SWEET!),

800 - I've heard it's the best playing PGM, but I'd have to test it to know it :D It's the lightest one, that's for sure (lightest of rg bodies)

700 - I've always liked that look! It's just plain cool to have violin type guitar =o

100 - you just can't go wrong with a combination of blue paintjob and pink pickups/f holes!

You don't understand how much I'd kill for a job that'd pay me half of minimum wage ($4 or so per hour) so I could get one.

Unfortunately, I can't legally work until August 7th, but even then my mom would only let me get a summer job, so no PGM for me </3


Or wait, can you make like around 2k in like 27 days? :o

PGM700 - sweet looking guitar. Thought it might work very well as a stage guitar.
PGM100 - in case i need a trem and pink f-holes.
PGM301 -
PGM800 -
PGM500 - Haven't really considered what for, as to last three. Just playing the shit out of, i guess. They look sturdy. And they're pretty straight-forward, fixed bridge, kickass pickups.

That's the spirit :D It's good to see someone with a job working for something good. All my brother spends his money from his job on is whores at some nightclub and like, cheap cologne and KFC.

Who's making it? Buying from Warmoth and assembling it yourself, or is a luthier doing it for you?

I've been thinking of buying the parts for a Fireman from Warmoth. I'm fairly sure it'd cost under $2000 total to make.

PGM100 - If I need a trem.

PGM200 - Favorite PGM. Awesome color, HHH, Pink Fholes. Super 80's

PGM301 - For the sweet maple neck and the classic Paul look.

PGM800 - 2nd Favorite PGM. I'd get it for the different pickups and wood. Apparently the best sounding/playing one!

I'm torn between the Orange PGM and the 10th. Orange for the Fhole bindings and Tone Zones (not to mention the color), and the 10th for that 25TH FRET. The finish is awesome too.

Now if we're talking about guitars he used during the 80's, i NEED that pink Destoyer/Iceman Custom
:twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

If I had to say, I'd say that the 401 is the best sounding/playing one completely stock. Plus, if you really need a middle pickup, I hear it isn't too hard to route out a slot.

Not too sure why the 800 is so popular. I personally prefer the 401. of course, Superheroes was played with the 800 so that's probably why everyone says it sounds so good. I'm prety positive that it sounds so good because Bruce produced it, not because he used the 800. Of course, I haven't heard him play live with the 800 in comparison with the others, so of course there is the entire posibility that it does sound better than all the rest. Meh, if you want an 800, just get the 401, route out a single coil slot and put in 2 tonezones and the Fs1 (I think?) and you're set.

/end rant that I made in order to get rid of the thought of the 800 being reissued.

The 800 does sound awesome. If you haven't heard them all it s tough to prove the 401 sounds the best especially since it isn't even available to the public yet.

I would much rather buy a 800 than modify a 401 to 800 spec. The 800 would probably cost you a few hundred less than a stock 401. Add on the cost of mods and its not worth it IMO.

+1. I've never played an 800, so I was just basing my statement off of what people on the board have said. Just changing the 401 to the 800 specs wouldnt really do it for me. Dont get me wrong, i'm sure it'd be a great sounding and playing guitar, but why not just get a regular 800? I actually voted for the 200 and the 800 a few times for the re-issue. From the poll, it sounds like it's between those two (FEW DAYS LEFT :lol: :lol: :shock: ). But anyway, I wouldn't shell out 2,000+ bucks and then the cost for a tone zone, a humbucker from hell (right?), and the fs-1? for a 401 - 800 job. Not even mentioning whatd itd be like to drill a middle pickup space.

Oh, damn you're right. I wasn't thinking, my bad :roll:

I'm thinking about building either the orange PGM (assuming it isn't a model that they'll sell by then) or an 800 with a maple board and better color scheme, along with 401 switching + a coil split on the volume pot for Grade 11/12 wood working. That's 3/4 years from now, though. Who knows, I might hate Paul in 3/4 years.



























Haha, who am I kidding? PAUL IS A GOLDEN GOD.
