Post Custom PGM used in Getting Heavier on eBay
Another custom PGM for bidding, although not a very famous one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 587wt_1335

Maybe that's going over 7000 too! :lol:

So apparently Paul hasn't changed the string in 8 years :D Damn that guitar is nice. PGM 900 styled. I've never seen it before!

BUT - when the topic said "used on Getting Heavier album" I was kind of hoping for the BLACK pgm.

When I took the first glance, I thought it was the Orange PGM.

Now that'd go HIGH!

Hello,

Thanks for looking at my guitar. The info is sparse on the ebay page, so I thought I'd give you some more details about it.

It's a custom-shop Ibanez PGM1963. It is the guitar that I used for the majority of the "Getting Heavier" record, but when I first got the guitar, the brown finish was darker than I wanted, so the custom shop made another body. I had lost my taste for brown, so I went with a red stain instead. It's hard to see the details in the photo, but you can see the wood grain on the real guitar.

The real stand-out feature of the guitar is the neck. It's an V-neck, and nice and thick (for tone and sustain.) Right before that record, I was living in Japan, and I bought a vintage acoustic guitar with a V-neck. I really liked the acoustic (I used it in on "Acoustic Samurai"), so I thought it might be cool to have a similar V-neck on a PGM electric guitar. Basically, it's a great, chunky neck with tall frets and super low action.

The pickups are DiMarzio Air Classics.

The proceeds from the auction will go to Cliff Cultreri. He was a record company executive that was important in the careers of Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. Joe and Steve are playing a benefit concert at the House of Blues in Los Angeles to raise money to help Cliff and his family with his medical issues.

http://www.satriani.com/benefitforcliff2/

My touring schedule won't allow me to play at the show, so I wanted to contribute by donating a guitar that I love.

I hope the guitar finds a good home!

Thank you,

Paul

Paul signing the guitar! I guess it wasn't supposed to be uploaded AFTER the auction ended though. :)

Edit: Ah, forget about that, he wasn't the original uploader.

That's really cool! The guitar went for less than the Ghost Rider but it was a significantly lesser known one. 5k is still a lot to dough :D

How did you managed to get Paul to sign the guitar on a sidewalk? :lol:

I dont think i could own a guitar like that and not play it.... or any guitar for that matter.

Seems an awful waste, but i guess its up to him what he does with it.
