Rally Your Shred-Ability with Paul Gilbert's Signature FRM100
When it comes to speed, no one tears up their axe quite like Paul Gilbert. That's why his FRM100 signature axe is a speed-demon that's eager to get into your hands. This guitar harnesses three single-coil hum-canceling DiMarzio pickups housed in a resounding mahogany body. You'll really hear the sustain as your fingers fly up and down 22 frets on this axe's three-piece mahogany/maple set-in neck. Paul Gilbert and the crew at Ibanez spent a lot of time carefully analyzing and combining the features that make this guitar a privilege to hear and pleasure to play. Not to mention -- the FRM100 looks like no other guitar out there!
Take a closer look at this eye-catching Ibanez:
Reverse Iceman Shape that Hugs Your Body
One of Paul Gilbert's signature FRM100's most apparent aspect is its atypical body design. The curves of its reverse Iceman body design gives a comfortable fit as it rests against your front. These curves also give this axe an atypical look that leaves a lasting visual impression.
Three DiMarzio Single-Coil Hum-Canceling Pickups
Paul Gilbert loves this guitar's biting tone. That's due to two DiMarzio Injector pickups for your neck and bridge, and a DiMarzio Area 67 in the middle. These babies project a trebly tone that slices through nicely, but not overly so, the way many single-coil pickups do. Your five-way pickup selector blade gives you five different pickup combinations, and your master volume and tone knob give you easy control of your signal output level and brightness/dullness settings.
Mahogany and Maple Tonewoods that Feel and Sound Great
Guitarists know how important the woods of their axes are in providing resonance and color to tone. Your FRM100's sleek and curvy mahogany body is a great resonator for your three DiMarzio pickups. The three-piece mahogany/maple neck is beefy but comfortable, and its set-in connection gives you a nice and smooth transfer of sound. Plug this baby in and see how long each note holds.
Paul Gilbert's Choice of Tall and Narrow Frets
Another great treat on this signature axe is Paul Gilbert's choice of using slightly taller and narrower frets. This allows for a looser feel for vibratos and bends. You'll be able to get under and push your strings further than you're used to, and these taller frets won't get in your way when you want to make flying runs up and down this guitar's sturdy and comfortable neck.
The Security of a Tight-Tune Bridge and Tailpiece
Holding your playing down are the tight and secure pairing of a Tight-Tune bridge and a Tight-Tune tailpiece. Your tailpiece will anchor your strings down tightly without killing any sustain. You can adjust your bridge until you get your scale length the way you want, but once you lock it down, it's not going anywhere until you loosen it again yourself. Intonation, security, and sustain are always at your side with these bad boys.
