Post question about the pgm 301
I have heard that there are differences in the pgm 301, what exactly makes one better that the other , I have played ones from 04 and 05 and they seemed exactly the same, so which year etc is the the best one if this is correct and why.. Any info would be appreciated..

Regards Chris....

The only difference I know of is the neck. The new necks think are 5 piece necks with a volute. This makes them stronger.

Some people say they have slightly different profiles. I don't know for sure though.

They are both good guitars. The new necks should be stronger, but there is nothing wrong with the older ones.

Yeah, the neck is quite a bit thicker than say, a Jem's neck.

i have a jem 03 and a pgm 05

there are a lot of differences in the necks. the pgm has 18 to 20mm neck and the jem has 19 to 21. if you have your hands 5 hours a day on a pgm neck and you grab a jem you'l notice, but thats not a problem, both necks rule! also the pgm neck has a more flat front site and bigger frets i think. and also the finish on the back of the pgm neck is thinner so it gives a nice slide on the hand.

pgm necks 04 or 05 are both awesome. and personaly i like more the 05 neck because it's stronger.... and i want this neck to last :)

Hi thanks for the replies, I just remember seeing people say they were looking or waiting to find a specific pgm 301 to buy or add to their collections and I just had to throw the question out there as I have played a bunch of them and they all seemed to be the same to me , great quality and fast players for sure !!!!!

Thanks guys appreciate the info.....

I like both JEM and PGM neck, so if I see a 301 that I can afford, it's mine, no matter what year :)
