In this new video, Paul Gilbert demos and discusses his latest signature Ibanez guitar, the PGM80P. This guitar is based on his 1996 PGM800 but with Gilbert's updated preferences, including 22 frets, DiMarzio PAF Master humbuckers and a vintage Wilkinson tremolo bar.
When it comes to shred, few guitarists can rip like Paul Gilbert. As the driving force behind shred-progenitors Racer X and the chart-topping late-Eighties outfit Mr. Big, Gilbert dazzled with his unhuman fretboard range that included wide stretches and intervallic leaps.
In this recently posted (November 23) and brief video, Racer X and Mr. Big guitarist Paul Gilbert can be seen jamming on some upbeat blues with ukulele great Jake Shimabukuro. In case you're wondering, Gilbert's guitar solo starts at the 1:09 point.
