Price paid: $ 399

Purchased from: eBay

Features: - 2002 made in Japan - 24 frets - LTR II - White body w/f-holes - One volume knob - Comes with allan wrench and guitar strap - Paul Gilbert Signature model. // 8

Sound: My music is mostly prog metal. The neck on this guitar is perfect for shreding and arpegios and stuff. I am using it with a boss GT6 to a JCM800. The sound is rich and bright, perfect for fast picking and legato and feel you get is diffrent from the RG's. // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: Mine was second hand, but the action was just fine and excellent! With this guitar you can have insane low action and fast legato runs thru the neck. The only thing I don't like in this guitar is the bridge. Mine was made in 2001, so the bridge is LTR2, I heard other PGM made in 2003 were edge pro bridge, but it's still perfect for me. // 10

Reliability & Durability: I've used this guitar for 7 months, and it looks sturdy enough to withstand damnation. I can always depend on it, its sound is always rich and it never goes out of tune. // 10

Overall Impression: The guitar is perfect for lead guitarist, and those who worship Paul Gilbert. The neck on this guitar is just perfect, It's a different feelto other guitar and easy to play. // 10
