Ibanez debuts Paul Gilbert Signature ‘Fireman’ guitar

Possibly the most famous collector of classic Ibanez guitars has added one more to the lot, this time with another of his own designs. The PGMFRM1 Paul Gilbert “Fireman” is the doppelganger answer to the famous Ibanez Iceman. The Fireman has the signature Iceman horn on the top instead of the bottom, korina instead of mahogany body wood, and single coils instead of humbuckers.

Included with each Fireman limited edition guitar is a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Paul and a package of prestige gear also used and endorsed by Paul Gilbert: a Fireman Special strap by Hippie Strap, a BC 30' Coil Cable by Core One Creative, Inc., EX-29 Extreme Isolation Headphones by Direct Sound Headphones, LLC, and more. As with all Ibanez Japanese-made artist signature, prestige and handcrafted reissues, the Fireman includes a special hardshell case.

The Fireman, which features extensive hand work, is made by the most experienced builders of Ibanez, the same who crafted the limited edition Bob Weir, Artist AR5000RE, and Artwood Double Neck handcrafted reissues by Ibanez, as well as the 30th Anniversary Musician Commemorative Bass, which will debut along with the Fireman at the 2009 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim. Only 45 of the Paul Gilbert Fireman guitars will be available worldwide, with the amount slated for the United States not available at press time.
