Thats one sweet looking guitar.

I finally got my PGM 200 yesterday. Its my first guitar with PAF pro's. Clean the bridge pickup sounds bright and thin. With distortion it got a little muddy. Its probably partly due to my amp settings, but it doesn't sound as good as my 500 with the Tonezone. I'll try to get it dialed in, if not I will get some new pink pickups, or try it with a different amp.


That's awesome you got your 200. How does it play? Those pickups being ring mounted instead of direct mounted is possibly contributing to the thinness a little too. --Jason

The 200 plays really good. I don't know if it plays as good as my 500, but it is close. I definately prefer the sound of the 500. If the necks were a little thicker they would be pretty close to the perfect guitar. The 500 sounds amazing plugged in, but doesn't quite sound as good as my gibsons unplugged. I also prefer the thicker necks on the gibsons because my hands get less fatigued, and I can play longer.

Since the 200 is rare I probably will leave the stock pickups in there. I can get good tones using PAF style pickups in my Gibsons, I should be able to get some good ones with this guitar.

If I can't get my amp dialed in, I can always use it as another excuse to buy another amp. :D No matter how many PGM's Gibsons, and amps I get I always want more.

Check the gallery threads a few posts down. There is a pic of my 200 and EKG's. There are also pics of some of the other PGM's owned by board members.

I agree, the PAF Pro int the bridge position cuts through nicely. I have to admit though, I use the neck humbucker more. The tone from that pickup, mounted in basswood, along with the maple fingerboard is OUTSTANDING!!!! --Jason

Yeah, Yngwie stuff sounds better on that Pickup than on Yngwies neck Pickup. I have also Nailed a Gary Moore sound on that Pickup. I prefer PAF's to EVO's
