Post PGM 100 or PGM 500? Which do you prefer?
Im new to this board and im having a birthday coming up so I was hoping I could get some cash to get my first pgm guitar

If you have any info on either that would be great... the pgm 100RE is coming out and looks nice but I was just wondering what you all thought :D thanks for the help

Personally I prefer the 500. I like guitars with hardtails more than trems.

I think the 100RE is overpriced. If you are patient you can get an original for less.

I know the 100RE is a lot of money, but it would be brand new and without cracks or paint fading... plus I like the colors 8)

Since the 500 seems to popular... whats the going price for one in decent condion? I've seen them go every once in awile but none in terrific shape

never played the 100 but my 500 plays great, the metallic red is gorgeous and i prefer hardtails over trems at this point in my life, so i guess i would vote 500, but dont overlook the 800 too, thats a sexy guitar

Yeah I love the combination of the cream and gold on red so 500 is my favourite.

I think the 100 and 500 are both very good but totally different. If I had to choose two between the 100, 300, 301, 400 and 500 (as the 90th and 10th are more expensive) I would seriously have a problem. I think both the 100 and 500 play fairly easy and the trem on the 100 is good, both neck's play fast and sounds are tight. I like both bridge pick ups, but I like the neck pick up of the 500 better. If I really must choose I would pick the 500.

500 is the most common, but I'd definitely vote for it. Yellow and gold = sex

And in all honesty, I think the 100 looks like shit. I hate the color combination. Dark blue and pink?

If you want a custom, though, get the colors of the prototype PGM200. Neon blue + neon pink. Mmmmm... Okay gonna go fap now brb

I've owned both myself and I would take the 100 and not the 100RE with shit neck. My 500 might have been an odd duck though. I would like to play another to see if mine was just the "one" that didn't play well. It seemed to play like a truck compared to my other PGMs

Nah dude I'm referring to the fading pink turning orange. That's really off IMO. :? I've seen yours and you scored a good looking 100. The pink was NEON that's shit's tight. I dunno with other 100s but they usually look like crap.
