Post Paul's Acoustic Guitars?
Aside from his signature Ibanez acoustic, does anyone know which models of acoustic guitars Paul Gilbert plays?

Someone once mentioned after he enslaved the general population of Japan, he bolted small children together and used the hairs of a rare breed of horse (commonly known as the 'Unicorn') to create his signature tone.

Yeah I heard that too.

What I would really like to know is what guitar Paul used when he played "The Jig" I love that song.

It was an Ibanez Pat Methany model tuned low with acoustic strings and mic'd. (http://www.ibanez.com/hollow/series.aspx?s=pm)

Other models he's used recently (according to Young Guitar) are a custom Arnold M. J. Hennig, who works for Elderly (http://elderly.com/repair/staff.html), played on "3 E's for Eddie" and a Harmony Stella, although I'm unsure what it was used for.

Tastes are so different. I for instance don't like the overcompressed acoustic sound of Acoustic Samurai. Sounds very electrical to me.
