Paul Gilbert mentioned300,"The300 is probably the guitar that I played the most out of any of them. It was really the workhorse, the most punished guitar, the one that took the most abuse and kept on going. I used it during the peak of Mr. Big's success in Japan, when we were headlining three nights at the Buddokhan. It always sounded great. To me, one of the unique things about that guitar, for whatever reason, was that it cleaned up really nice. Whenever I would use the 5-way switch and click it over one click to use the single coil and the split-coil humbucker together and turn the volume on the guitar down, I'd get this really nice glassy sound. I remember playing that guitar on the Tonight Show, doing a song called "Just Take My Heart" that had a really clean sound. It just sounded beautiful on that. There was no channel switching necessary. I just plugged it into a cranked up Marshall, turned the volume down, and got this beautiful, clear, shimmering sound. Of course when you crank it up, it was total metal. So that was the guitar that my hands have spent the most time on out of any of thes. I think my chest cavity has modified to its shape. It's a very very dear guitar to me. I've spent so much time with it. I love it. You will, too. The300."
He also commented301,"So after years and years and years of playing my guitars, I started to come up with my favorite small details. The301 is the culmination of these details. For one thing and probably the most unique about 301, it's non-trem. There's no tremolo bar on 301. It does have that really solid feel of a non-tremolo bridge. To me, it's a little more Spartan of a guitar. It makes me have big calluses on my hand. I think I improve as a player from having to get the vibrato with my left hand rather than using the whammy. 301 is a very simple guitar, but the important work on the 301 is done on the things that matter most. The action is great, the tone is great, and the playability is great. It's a really reliable workhorse of a guitar. 301 always sounds great. I've done a million shows with that 301. In fact, the300 is really just a301. It just doesn't look as good, because I cut it up and did all those modifications to it. The301 is the result. It's nice and clean. Enjoy the301. That's the 301 I play. Thank you so much."
We examined really hard upon the above outlined features and duplicated this301 as similar as possible to the initial 301. All woods are identical as the unique 301, for example body wood, neck wood and fretboard wood (all high quality woods). The default pickups of 301 we used are Wilkinson pick-ups, which is cost effective and quality assured.
Since we batch made the 301 with a minor volume, the price, matched against those custom manufactured ones, is far more reasonably priced. But simultaneously, the supply of 301 is limited. If you truly want this 301, please make contact with us promptly.
