Ibanez FRM-150 Paul Gilbert Guitar in Transparent Red

Description

Paul Gilbert is a man known the world over for his incredible and unique hard rock guitar style and some weird and wonderful techniques such as using a drill as a plectrum. As a confounder of the internationally acclaimed band Mr Big with bass legend Billy Sheehan, Paul went out of his way to come up with a sound that is unique to him. Part of his sound has been his signature Ibanez guitar line including this DiMarzio loaded Fireman.

A Shape As Unique As The Player

Not many shapes are as instantly recognizable as the Ibanez Fireman. Paul designed this himself by taking the already popular Ibanez Iceman flipping it upside down and tweaking it so it was more comfortable to play. While you will often see Paul Gilbert with his signature RG as well there is never a Fireman far away.

While it may look a little bit different this guitar sounds and feels great thanks to the design team carving and cutting away to make it never gets in your way. The body has been made out of mahogany while the neck is 3 piece mahogany/maple neck which helps strengthen the neck so even in the toughest of conditions your guitar still plays great.

One thing that may surprise you with this guitar is that it does not have the classic Ibanez jumbo frets. Instead Paul opted for thinner and taller vintage style frets. This makes the neck feel much closer to a classic stratocaster than your typical Ibanez thin neck.

DiMarzio Air Pickups

The pickups in this guitar have to not only be clear and smooth enough to handle his soaring leads and intricate tapping sections. They also have to be able to fill up a mix in a single guitar band like Mr Big. To do this Ibanez have gone to DiMarzio and they have found their fantastic Air Classic and Area 67 pickups.

The Air Classic and Area 67 pickups are based on classic 50's humbuckers and late 60's single coil pickups respectively. Though the goal was to capture these incredible sounds while not having to give up on modern technology or quality. These pickups are completely noiseless so no matter how hard and heavy you want to go you will not hear any extra noise.
