Ibanez Paul Gilbert 25th Anniversary Model FRM250MF
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Paul Gilbert signature, Ibanez releases the limited edition FRM250MF.
Ibanez Andy Timmons Model AT10P
As expected, this special guitar has high-end specs along that infuse classic guitar styling (think Les Paul) to the modern look of the Fireman.
The first thing that will catch your attention is the detailed flame maple top, giving the guitar an elegant appeal that contrasts the guitar's out-of-this-world shape. The top, neck and headstock is also bound, adding classic design elements to this modern rock instrument.
Ibanez and Paul retained the same neck design as the current Fireman model, featuring a FRM 3pc Mahogany/Maple set-in neck. It follows the same specs with a scale length of 24.75" and nut width of 1.6929". Your fretting hand will meet the guitar via a bound rosewood fingerboard, featuring Paul Gilbert approved "narrow & tall frets."
From afar, the guitar looks like it has the same triple single-coil set of pickups as the current production model, closer inspection however reveals two cleverly camouflaged humbucker pickups on the bridge and neck position. Paul decided to have two DiMarzio Air Classic humbuckers installed while retaining the DiMarzio Area 67 single coil pickup on the middle position.
The guitar's new HSH configuration gives it a different set of sounds that is meant to appeal even to those that already own a Fireman model. Controls include a basic 5-way pickup selector, a volume knob and a tone knob. The controls are strategically positioned far from the pickups, so you don't hit them when you play hard.
The Ibanez Tight-tune bridge and tailpiece is still used for this model, said to promote better string vibration transfer with less unwanted movement. All the hardware are finished in chrome.
The guitar took a prominent space on Ibanez' booth at the recently concluded 2014 Winter NAMM Show. Pricing information will soon be available. You can head over to Ibanez for further details.
