Post My PGM dream, or maybe nightmare.
Ok, I'm going to chalk this one up to too much beer and chinese food earlier tonight.

I drempt that I went to the summer NAMM show in Indianapolis, and to everyones surprise Paul Gilbert shows up. He walks down the isle, toward the Ibanez booth, where everyone assumes he's going to introduce a new limited edition model. Well, just before he makes it to the Ibanez display, he turns left and walks into the Gibson booth! Once there, he announces that he's signed with Gibson and pulls the cover off his new signature model. The LesPGM. A traditional Les Paul std body, 2-1-2 pickup layout, 5-way selector, volume control, black with white f-holes. Just as he's about to explain why he switched brands, I woke up!

Crazy huh? --Jason

Wow...

In real life, I would be much more happy if he announces a limited edition PGM with Ibanez than go over to gibson and try to merge a PGM with a Les Paul.

lol! I had a really funky dream (I just woke up :oops: )

We were flying through the sky (Superman-style), saying hi to birds and people in aeroplanes flying past, and we arrived at my local music shop (I think).

He was like, 'Oh my god, you have got to see my new PGM! It's so fuckin cool!'. He revealed his new PGM. He was right, it was fuckin cool. IT WAS MADE FROM CHEESE. :shock: And it was playable too! So Paul was showing off as usual. But he was playing so fast that it started melting, and then he askd me 'Would you like some cheese on toast? Would you like Lee & Perrins on that?'. So he was makin cheese on toast and I swear it smelt so real!

And then I woke up.

:?

You people need to make sure the tinfoil quits coming off your heads when you're sleeping.

I actually did one of those Kisakae guitars a year or so ago just as you described.

I think a black Les Paul with white f-holes would look really good.

I love Les Pauls, and PGM's. I'm surprised the combination never crossed my mind before.

One of my favorite guitars is a Les Paul Florentine which had real f-holes.

Well, as you know, Paul's first "real" electric was a Les Paul Custom ('72?), so that seems possible.

Now, if the part about him showing up ant the Indy NAMM were true... I'd go in a heartbeat. I was planning on it, but now I have family in town that weekend. BUT, for a chance to finally meet Paul, screw them...

I had a little time to kill. Heres a white and black LES PGM. I didn't add the 5 way switch because the strat one in the program is at the wrong angle.

Yeah, that looks cool.
But I like the cream colored Ibanez Les Paul
with maple neck in the booklet of "Raw Blues Power" better. :wink:

I've found that if you use the telecaster selector switch in that Kisakae program, they fit perfect in the f-holes.

I actually thought about this one today coming home. If he had a Gibson endorsement, he could have a "mate" made to the Viola shaped 700. How about one shaped like an F-5 mandolin! That would be insane. Of course it cost about $10k coming from the Gibson custom shop. --Jason

His tone would be so much worse if he played Les Pauls.
