Ibanez Fireman History


At the beginning, Paul Gilbert employed Photoshop to complete a adjustment of the iceman, reversing the body and build an further cutaway, that is just a little scaled-down in comparison with the initial one on the Iceman. Paul made two models from the firemam, 1 with Korina physique, known as pgmfm1 later, another one with mahogany body, identified as pgmfm2 later. Why the guitar is called Fireman? At 1st, Gilbert called it reversed Iceman, but soon after one of Gilbert's enthusiasts found it in a video in which Gilbert was playing with the guitar on-line, the admirer feel since it really is a reversed Iceman, then the opposite aspect of ice is fire, thus why not name it Fireman. So he recommended Paul to give it the name "Fireman". Paul favored his idea. In 2009, Ibanez Company officially released the product, and Gilbert soon acquired this Paul Gilbert Signature Guitar, employing it in his cds and numerous stage performances. This is the story in the birth.

Paul's design idea was influenced by Michael Anthony's Jack Daniel bass, Michael ever got the idea "Why cannot he own a instrument just like the wine bottle he favored.
