Ibanez FRM250 Paul Gilbert 25th Anniversary Limited Signature Electric Guitar
As legend has it, shred-master Paul Gilbert dropped an image of one of his favorite guitars, the Ibanez Iceman, into Photoshop, and began to digitally re-shape the iconic instrument into what would become his personal dream guitar, the Fireman. As his fans know, Gilbert is not given to standing still for long, and that restlessness is expressed in his gear as well as his playing. Hes re-tooled the Fireman several times through the years, and now in honor of his 25th year as an Ibanez endorser, Gilbert
and the guitar maker have created what may be their most exciting collaboration yet. Read More »
As with previous Fireman models this axe features a bigger-than-average set-in neck joint that Gilbert maintains in the secret to his endless sustain. The neck is a 3-pc Mahogany/Maple, and sports a Rosewood fretboard with tall frets. The Tight Tune bridge is the perfect hardtail combination of adjustability and night-after-night solid tuning stability.
The FRM250MF Humbucker/Single Coil/ Humbucker pickup configuration is juiced to the max by an arsenal of Gilberts favorite DiMarzio. The guitarists choice in pickups make for a powerful sonic contrast, pitting the built-for-distortion DiMarzio Air Classic against the clarity of an Area 67 classic single coil middle pickup (sans the single-coil noise, thanks DiMarzio!). Though Paul Gilberts fans will be the first to gravitate toward the new Fireman, Gilbert is quick to point out that this Fireman lends itself to bold exploration in a variety of musical directions.
Tight-Tune Bridge and Tailpiece
The original Ibanez Tight-Tune bridge and tailpiece promote superior transfer of string vibration without unwanted movement. Ball ends are locked in for simpler string changes.
The FRM250MF features a specific layout to keep the volume knob location in Paul's favorite spot. In addition, the guitar features a pickup selector switch and an added tone control for maximum tone shaping.
A limited series with a beautiful flame top, set neck and DiMarzio pickups.
