Right on. Yea, Let me know how that turns out man. I've been thinking about ordering a guitar there myself but find it hard to find any real review of this business.

I think the pictures are real as well! A few months back i spotted one of the Korina FRM's on the bay. But it wasn't an Ibanez - Was in fact a 'rareelectric'. The pictures in the ad were super HDR-HD Looking lol. But it looked to be a good copy, Hope it works out in your favor. And thanks for your input.

As we talked on previous posts refering to ralelectricguitars, I´ll say they´ve sent me some pics of the Fireman I ordered. It´s not built yet. It´s a left handed replica, so it must be the reason they haven´t any on stock an had to built one from scratch.

I don´t know if this is exactly related to "PGM´s available", but I think it´s interesting knowing a little more about PGM´s market.

I´d like to remark that if I buy this guitar is because I want a Fireman and there´s none available for lefty people. If Ibanez were selling a lefty Fireman, I would have one for sure (at the actual Ibanez Fireman´s price). Having a replica made by a luthier could be really expensive for me.

I hope no one thinks I´m promoting some kind of "piracy". I love the Fireman and this is the only affordable possibility of getting one :)

can't wait to see what you get man!

One of the users here didn't like the price of the Korina so had someone make him one, we were nothing but interested so this seems cool to me as Ibanez aren't ever going to provide what you need!

Post Re: PGM's Available in 2013
I think they make guitars that are out of production (at least on PGM´s case). The korina and the kikusui Firemen are two examples of it, the same as the PGM 300 and PGM 301 replicas. They also make an Ibanez GOOMY replica that looks cool.

I´ve found an identical page called vintageguitarhome and curiously in that one they have no 300 or 301 PGM´s and the kikusui Fireman is more expensive than in rareelectric (if I´m not wrong) :)

... and this is a little review I found on Jemsite:

Anyhow regarding rare electric guitars. I own a charvel warren de martini swords and I seen this site selling Therese copy guitars so I to figured for the price what the heck. Ill hang it on the wall.
Well when it got here I had my wife lay them side by side I could not tell mine from the fake its that well done I was shocked. It should be criminal . Lol the body is alder the paint is the same poly job as charvel the pick up is a Wilkison at 17 k ohms the Floyd. Is Japan made but has all the markings and stamping s of a genuine Germany Floyd. Schaller m6 mini tuners the weight is off by 1 lb the logos and signature are identical to charvels . I'm so shocked of the actual quality and exact likeness that its a shame and should be stopped. Wich now brings to to wonder just how many have hit ebay with the correct sd rtm pick up in them to buyers who have no clue. The serial number even checks out with charvel as a 2009 model.go figure. I also have a evh charvel so I just today purchased one of the Japan ones to compare again.im wondering if I will get the same quality. I did notice they had a full on custom shop as well.a friend of mine placed an order with them last wheel for a j frog bones. Lynch guitar.cant wait to see that one. I have number 11 of the first 25 so the comparison will be fun.
Don't know how the get away with it but they do not sell the standard plywood junk that is usually the norm.
When they retrieve my original account I will repost here so you all know I'm not affiliated with them it's been like 5 years since I was last on jesmite I think back then I was looking for 80's charvel Jackson stuff

I already have the Fireman replica after waiting for customs reasons and paying taxes. Indeed it looks great but as I could expect it´s not a perfect copy. The main thing is the bridge, which makes some strange angle. The neck seems to have some inclination, but I could lower the action to some point without geting undesiderable buzzs.

Pickguard finish isn´t perfect and there are some points such as fretboard and some joints that reveals that, apart from being a "cheap" copy, they have built it fast, maybe too fast IMO. i think fretbooar needs some polish or simply some cleaning.

Tuners suck a little but they seem to keep in tune (1st string was out of its rail and after adjusting it, got broken when tuning the guitar, but new string´s had no problem).
The case is not the best one you can find, but guitar fits, though the guitar lies too much on its neck (minor problem if you take care).

For the moment it sounds good to me. I had no guitar with S-S-S PU´s configuration and I think the Wilkinson PU´s have a sweet tone .

I didn´t expect an actual Fireman, of course, but as the only way of having one, I think this guitar is good for me.

Some pics:

Have you taken of the truss rod cover. There was a guy on a forum saying he didn't think the guitar had a truss rod!

I´ve done what you´ve mentioned and yes, there is, but it´s not visible. When I released the cover I though it was true ant it has no truss rod but I introduced the screwdriver through the hole and it made a metalic soud, so I introduced the long allen key that came with the guitar ant it fit on what´s suposed to be the truss rod :)

Anyway, being aware of this guitar it´s not a top instrument, it plays... and it´s a Fireman I couldn´t get for an affordable price on left handed version.

Well that's good to know. Bring it to a tech foot a set up and a polish on the fret board and I bet it'll play great.
Congrats on the new guitar dude.

Thank you. I´lll wait some time to see if it´s worthy a deep setup, even installig a new set of PU´s, maybe injectors or something like that.

The guitar finally needed some adjusting. Bridge had the saddles installed like a right handed one and pickups are not great but sound nice (maybe the bridge PU alone sounds worse than it should). On the other side, the luthier has told me that wood is great and body is really well mounted.

Yes, neck is thick, which makes it more difficult to play with my little hands. Fretboard has been polished and frets sanded on the sides. Strings action has been lowered as much as possible (some problem with 6th string though) and it had some electronics adjustment.

It´s a "cheap" guitar, but it rocks. I think it fits more on blues/rock than on metal, but working on it I´m sure that you can find the tone you want. :)

That's good to hear! And agree that it's more blues/rock than metal.

I have an old MIK Strat that I put injectors in, but I have someone who wants to buy the guitar off of me.
So, been considering getting one of these myself and just swapping electronics. I think I will!
Thank you for the info Sir.

I think the guitar is a really good start to make your own configuration. I´m thinking about getting a left handed PGM300 though at this moment I don´t want to spend in electronics more than what I paid for the guitar.

Injectors are seriously floating in my mind...

If you decide to get one of those replicas tell the guys to inform you about what you should do to pay lower taxes... They´ll help you :)
