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 give comments on301,"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 it, it's non-trem. There's no tremolo bar on it. 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. It's a very simple guitar, but the important work on the guitar 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. It always sounds great. I've done a million shows with that one. 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 For Sale is the result. It's nice and clean. Enjoy the301 For Sale. That's the one I play. Thank you so much."
