Ibanez has unveiled its latest Paul Gilbert signature model, the FRM300.
Built with a three-piece okoume/maple set-in neck and solid okoume body, the guitar sports a bound ebony fretboard with a 24.75" scale length. Also aboard are a Gibraltar Performer bridge and Quik Change III tailpiece, for quicker string changes.
Sounds come by way of the guitar's DiMarzio PG-13 mini-humbuckers, which Ibanez says were specifically wound for Gilbert. These are controlled by a five-way pickup selector switch, plus volume and tone knobs.
The Ibanez Paul Gilbert signature FRM300 is available now – in a Purple finish – for $1,099.99.
