I've ALWAYS wanted one of these and FINALLY, I have one smile.gif The neck is the original wizard profile and it's paper thin and soooo comfy. Just love it smile.gif

Lookin' sharp man! You know I have never noticed before that this model has only a volume POT. What pickups are in it?

I am so green with envy. They aren't the original pickups are they, the originals had pink bobbins

Yeah, finding one of those in good condition is not easy, but if it's in nice shape, you've got a great guitar!

Thanks! smile.gif They are the stock pickups which (sadly) appear to be infinity pups.
http://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/PGM30

It's a 1996 so it's the last year of the model to use the original Wizard neck. I just love that neck profile and it's getting very hard to find one that isn't warped a bit. The necks were sooooo thin that simply age and or high gauge strings can cause them to warp over time. Thankfully this one is very straight and in better shape than my rg560 smile.gif

You mean blue and pink with envy! smile.gif This is the pgm30 so no pink bobbins, but I may swap the pups out for some that do smile.gif

Tell me about it! Luckily, found one that was being stored and not used for some time. The frets are practically new smile.gif

It's in great shape thank goodness smile.gif Really happy to have it. I just got two RGT42 neck through guitars, but now I might sell one or both as I like this one better.

Good eye! Thats what it is smile.gif The PGM Jewel Blue. Only made for three years. 93-96. Like many of my fave Ibbys, it was only made for a short time, making them hard to find.
