Post pgm 30 question
i have a pgm 30 and despite all the criticism it received i still think its an awesome guitar! ive notcied that the strings on my pgm 30 snaps MUCH faster and easier than my other axes (fender stratocasters)..is it because of the locked bridge?

I´ve owned a PGM30 and it rocked!
The trem was a bit dodgy but otherwise a great and
cool looking gitta!

I didn´t break (snap) more strings than usual on mine
but if your not use to a double locking gitta that might
be the reason you´re breaking strings.
It takes some getting used to.

I had to have one of the locking nuts filed as it was snapping the top E when you tightened it - apart from that no problems

If you like the tone you are getting now then there is no need to change the pickups.

If you don't like the tone you are getting, or just want a change. Then I would consider changing the pickups.

PGM30 isnt a bad guitar, just the pickup needs to be changed. The criticism you received must be from an Ibanez hater or something. The only thing I dont like about it is the pickup ring.
About string breakage. A double-locking trem does break more frequent than a hardtail. For me, I cant live without a trem so i have to live with it.
The stock pickups arent that bad, but not that good either IMO. If you wanna change pickups, you should check out dimarzio pickups.
I use a cheap Ibanez RG guitar and a cheap ZOOM pedal because i dont have money to even get a PGM30 and i have no complaints about them nomatter how bad they sound, hehe. Everything on the PGM30 is great except for the pickups which are decent.

The 30 is in the same boat as the JEM555. They are both for people with a more Modest Wallet. I owned a 555 years ago and to be honest i dident like the TRS but i couldent afford a 7V so it was the best alternative

You're dang skippy! However, look on the bright side: when your strings break more often, you're less likely to be playing dead strings.
