A guitar legend. Best known for his work with the chart topping 'Mr. Big' and shred-pioneers 'Racer X', Paul Gilbert is an exceptional guitar player with a standout style. Combining creativity, accuracy, and power, Paul has toured the globe delivering his expressive guitar music to sold out arenas worldwide. Throughout it all, Paul has used Ibanez guitars.

Distinctive tone. The PGM333 features a signature set of DiMarzio PG-13 pickups developed specifically for Paul Gilbert. These mini humbuckers provide a unique sound that is much clearer and brighter than a standard humbucker. Crank the gain up on your amp and these pickups deliver detailed harmonics and a powerful crunch. Full, crisp, but never harsh, these pickups can produce the wide range of tones needed by Paul when he is on the road. Experience excellent sonic versatility.
Known for his fast shredding, you would expect a Paul Gilbert signature guitar to play amazingly well - and you’d be right. The 5-piece maple and walnut neck fits comfortably in your hand. It has the perfect thickness to provide both exquisite playability and excellent tone. With this super-fast neck, you can solo with confidence as you easily navigate to any of the 24 frets. And with Ibanez’s Prestige fret edge treatment you can expect a pristinely finished neck that is a joy to play.
Quality craftsmanship. The PGM333’s African mahogany body provides a warm, dark sound, while the 5-piece maple and walnut neck not only adds strength and rigidity, it also brings extra snap to the high end. This combination results in a beautifully even sound with plenty of punch. A macassar ebony fretboard feels great under your fingertips and has a clear midrange with sizzling highs. This incredible neck construction produces a well-rounded, balanced tone that compliments your playing - allowing you to always feel connected to your guitar. The key to performing at your best.
Strong and reliable. It doesn’t matter how good a guitar sounds if it’s constantly going out of tune. To ensure this doesn’t happen, the PGM333 is fitted with quality gold hardware that not only looks amazing - it's tough and reliable too. A set of Gotoh locking tuners provides superb tuning stability, and their locking design allows for quick string changes. When combined with a Gotoh GTC101 fixed bridge, you get a rock-solid platform which will keep up with even the fiercest playing.
Ultimate protection. Have peace of mind that your pride and joy is safe and secure. The PGM333 comes with a hardshell case at no extra cost – perfect for keeping your guitar free from scratches or dents during transit. Ideal for gigging musicians, this will help keep your guitar in pristine condition when you are out on the road.
