Post PG's pgm hardtail conversion...When?
i was watching through some old Mr Big concert footage, Live and Kicking..noticed that several of his axes (pgm200, 300) were already converted to hardtail from a floating trem back then. That concert was back around in the very early 90's.

Did PG started filling up his pgms back then? i thought that he started only much later, in the later 90's...so when exactly did PG started converting his main floating trem axes to hardtails ones??

btw i just cant get over that baby blue/pink pgm200 with pink sharkfin inlays neck...thats just TOO SWEEEEETT :lol:

He started converting after the first tour with Mr. Big.
The reasons he gave at the time were that -

A) He was bored with how he was using the whammy, i.e. just to dive-bomb at the end of a solo

B) He didn't have a tech. to change his strings for him so it was much easier to restring a hard-tail every night, and less prone to tuning problems

C) His vibrato and attack improved from using a hardtail.

This has been documented in his interviews of the time... just can't put my hands on them now.
