Its a pretty good guitar. The 2003 model might be better than the earlier versions. It had the edge pro trem I think, and a prestige neck. The earlier versions had the lo pro trs trem, which some people don't think is as good. I don't have much experience with trems so I don't know how much better the edge is. I prefer hardtails myself.

The pickups could be better, but that can be easily changed.

I love the simple control layout.

yer, don't get a pre 2003 PGM30 because of the trem
also if you upgrade the pickups to DiMarzio's or Duncans, you would probably end up spending as much if not more than a PGM300 or PGM301
i personally prefer the PGM301
it also depends on how much is the 95' PGM30 you got offered?
if it's cheap and in good condition, then go for it
you can block the trem and change the pickups, then you'll be all set 8)

Sheesh..

By reading all the posts on this forum regarding the PGM30, you'd think that I got the only two in the world with stable trems and no tuning problems..

:roll: :shock:

If you get an early one with a Lo-TRS, you could always swap it out for an Original Floyd Rose, but with the newer ones which have the Edge Pro 2, you are stuck with it. Nothing retrofits the Edge Pro 2 without routing.

So I stand corrected.. :lol:

My main player is a 2001 PGM30JB. I haven't had to do anything but fine-tune it once a week since I last changed the strings more than a month ago..
I also have a 1995 PGM30WH that stays in tune just as well.

Both have TRSII trems on them.
