Hmm ... the neck looks really quite disproportionately big in relation to the body :?

The guitar looks all right though ... :wink:

Ok guys here is a in depth review

Next comes my video review but for the time being this should keep you guys happy

Aesthetics

What can I say? The guitar looks unbelievable, quite literally, it's hard to believe this isn't an Ibanez Fireman. You can tell that extreme care has gone into every aspect of construction.

Construction

You can run your hands all along the body and it is consistently smooth as you would hope. It's an excellent bit of wood with a beautiful grain. The gloss finish is exactly what I was hoping for and the satin finish on the back of the neck (different to Paul's) feels just the way I would like it too. I'm not a fan of fretboards that feel somewhat sticky. Everything is done the highest of standards and you can tell Jaden has put a lot of effort into making the guitar as good as possible.

Feel

After playing with the fireman for 4/5 hours I picked up my PGM500. I chuckled to myself, it felt like I was holding a piece of paper in between my hands in contrast to the fireman. I'm liking the thick neck, I've always been drawn to thick necks but have a dislike for the ways les pauls look so have never really given them a chance. Sure it's slightly harder to play but it's so worth it, not only is it making me a better player, the guitar just feels better...


Sound


Here is where the guitar excels. This guitar makes you work, but rewards you in doing so. Never before has my vibrato sounded so natural, my bends take a lot more effort and when I pull them off they sound great! Single coils are the way forward! They sound great for everything and you can really hear genuine tone come through when the gain is cranked.

Jaden Rose

I'll be honest, the guitar took a lot longer to make than I had expected, but was it worth the wait? Yes. I'm sure if I would have asked for one of Jaden's production models (which I had the chance to play on and they were incredible) I would have got it much quicker. The reason being that he had to put in so much research to pull this project off. Jaden seems a very very nice guy and I wish his business the best of luck

Video review will be up in the next couple of days when I have the house to myself :)

Doesn't sound like a $5,000 difference. Hell, it doesn't even sound like it costs less than an Ibanez fireman. What an amazing guitar.

Some very very bad news guys :(

My brother has just accepted a job offer in Newcastle and is therefore taking the car with him. We've always shared the car but technically he bought it and it's therefore his...

Him going to Newcastle means I've got no car. I can't live without a car at the moment either...

I've just listed so much stuff on ebay, my pc, blu-rays, dvds, monitors and everything i have that I can sell but I'm not going to have anywhere near enough to buy a car :(

I can't believe I'm about to say this but I may have to consider listening to offers for my custom fireman. I love the damn thing, I play it more than my PGMs but it looks as if I'm left with no choice. I can't even save up for a car as I've just graduated and am job hunting.

I really really don't want to sell this guitar but I haven't got much choice :(

Only 5 mins ago I made a thread about Paul's red fireman to have my brother come upstairs and tell me he has got a job in Newcastle...
