Post PGM100RE?
I've seen this model listed as in stock and available by Musicians Friend. I thought this was a extremely limited run, so are there that many still available that MF is able to have them in stock or Ibanez actually made a lot more than they said would be?

Doing a quick search there are plenty of online dealers with PGM100RE's in stock. Sweetwater, zzounds, sam ash, american muisical, matts music...

I don't recall ever reading it would be extremely limited like the fireman. I have never seen an actual quote from Ibanez stating how many will be made.

I also don't know how well they are selling. If all these stores still have some in stock maybe it isn't flying off the shelves. They also could have made more than we realize.

I've seen one at a local store in vienna. To my surprise it felt completely different than my RG550, so it's not just an RG with painted f holes

Would either of you care to elaborate? I've been looking at picking one up and I'd be curious to know what you thought the main differences were.

The only difference on paper between the reissue and the original that I can see is the reissue has a 5 piece neck which most would say is an improvement over the original.

I have an RG so I'd be curious to know how different it feels than an RG as well.

hi,

well, a 5 pice neck isn't necessarily an improvement, it's just more complicated to build
but actually in that case it's those slim graphite bars in between the 3 logs of wood, it's a stabillity improvement of course

compared to my RG550 (reissue model from 2 years ago) it had first and foremost a different neck shape. It was more D shaped...

but sound wise or playing wise I can't say much since it wasn't set up like I would set up my guitars and I played it through a Line6 Spider at the store...

but I'm sure it's a great guitar

The only reason it has a slightly different feel from the original PGM 100 models is because the neck is different indeed. On the original PGM100 models the neck didn't run all the way through to the body, there was a cavity underneath frets 20 till 24 I believe. In (quite) some cases this made the fretboard sort of "curl up" over the years. On the new PGM100RE models they have made it so that the neck just runs all the way through till it hits the body. I own one and I can honestly say I just cannot stop playing this thing, I own a 90ies RG 750 and an '88 JEM but this thing just beats the crap out of em both. If anyone is considering buying it I can only advise you to do so. It's an awesome sounding and even better playing beast!!!

The RE neck profile is 2mm wider at the last fret.
