Paul Gilbert Signature guitar

Ibanez PGM 401 | 2009


The PGM401 is a PGM series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2009. It is a signature model of American guitarist Paul Gilbert. It replaced the PGM301.

The PGM401 has a more 'classic' approach than the PGM301 with a sunburst finish, an RG-style ash body, DiMarzio Air Classic pickups which give a more "vintage" tone, a bone nut and Gotoh tuning machines. It also abandons the more modern All Access Neck Joint of the previous Gilbert models in favor of the traditional Tilt Joint, which Paul Gilbert believes provides a "fatter" sound.


The signature painted F-holes of the PGM models are 3% smaller on the PGM401 to retain a balanced look with the pickup rings.


The PGM401 was discontinued after 2011. 

This guitar is found in Mint condition, little to no marks are seen around the guitar. Even the plastic over the backplate is still there. Rare guitar and hard to find in this mint condtion. We invite you to come by our shop to try its wonderful neck and feel to this guitar.
