Ibanez FRM150, Paul Gilbert Signature Series, Fireman Electric Guitar, Transparent Red Finish
Guitar virtuoso Paul Gilber knew exactly what he wanted when he designed his first Fireman guitar, and Ibanez were exactly the kind of company to give it to him. With its extreme body shape, customised tone, and plenty of power, the FRM200-WHB is the latest entry to the Fireman lineup, and takes these ideas even further!
As Unique and High-Performance as Paul Gilbert himself
Every bit of this guitar, from the headstock, to the pickups, and even to the unique control pot configuration, has been built according to Paul Gilbert's precise instructions and needs. Featuring a slim, fast neck, two DiMarzio PG-13 mini humbuckers, Tight-Tune fixed bridge and tailpiece, bound ebony fretboard, black scratchplate, chrome hardware, and that unique Fireman body shape, this guitar is ready to rock straight out of the box!
With Paul's favourite DiMarzio Air humbuckers in the neck and bridge position, and a DiMarzio Area 67 single coil pickup in the mid position, the FRM150 is capable of a vast array of guitar tones. Whether you want a beefy, bridge humbucker-driven overdrive sound for those heavy riffs, a smooth and creamy neck humbucker tone for soloing, or even a range of bright, clean tones for simple chording, these pickups have got you covered.
Designed by Ibanez, the Tight-Tune bridge and tailpiece work perfectly together, promoting superior transfer of string vibration, whilst eliminating any unwanted string movement. They work perfectly with the solid mahogany body, in the delivery of a rock-solid and reliable tone with plenty of sustain.
Unusual Control Layout
As per Paul Gilbert's instructions, the Tone and Volume control pots are situated the opposite way around to where you'd normally expect to see them (Volume closer to the bottom end of the guitar, with Tone closer to the pickups). It's also worth noting that the Tone control only works in positions 3, 4 and 5, with anything before or beyond these numbers allowing the specially designed pickups to do the talking for you.
