Product Description

Paul Waggoner, a founding member, songwriter, and lead guitarist of Between the Buried and Me, uses his unique style as an integral part of the band’s progressive sound. Paul brings that creative spirit and innovative drive to everything he’s involved with, and his Ibanez Signature model is no exception.

Ibanez PWM10 Paul Waggoner Signature Electric Guitar Features

  • 3-piece Maple/Bubinga “Wizard III” neck
  • Rosewood fretboard with White off-set dot inlay
  • Mojotone PW Hornet Humbuckers
  • Coil-tapping mini switch equipped
  • Cosmo Black hardware
  • Factory Tuning C#
  • String gauges (from 1st to 6th) : .012/.016/.024w/.034/.046/.059
  • Hardshell case included
Waggoner’s input begins at the instrument’s very core with a thicker, beefed-up version of the Ibanez S body style. Made of select Ash, the added girth of this altered shape improves sustain and resonates with a fatter, warmer tone, yet retains excellent articulation. Complementing this body, Paul chose a 3-piece Maple/Bubinga Wizard III neck and Rosewood fretboard with jumbo frets—each, highly detailed for an extraordinarily smooth, comfortable feel and maximized playing speed. Hardware includes the Ibanez Edge Zero II bridge for fluid, unobtrusive performance and superior tuning stability.

At the heart of the PWM10 is Paul’s signature “PW Hornet” pickups, designed in collaboration with Mojotone—a North Carolina, custom pickup builder known for their responsive, hand-made pickups. Waggoner’s goal was to achieve a heavy, balanced sound that could cut through any mix. In his words: “Something that’s nice and full, but also has that sparkle, is the kind of thing I’ve always loved.” The result is the pairing of a bridge pickup that is aggressive, yet articulate, with a neck pickup that’s diametrically opposed in sound character: less abrasive, and “friendlier” sounding for clean rhythms and leads. Together, they produce a tone capable of dominating the sonic landscape, but are still able to “sing” without sounding abrasive.

The PWM10 ships tuned to C# and includes a hard shell case.

Never been so frustrated in over 40 years of playing guitar

What is your opinion of this product?
I don't know that P.O.S. is appropriate, but close. The guitar ships set up for C# tuning with strings thick enough to wrangle an elephant. That's all cool until you try to bring it to standard E tuning. Replace the factory shipped strings with lighter gauge - no problem. Then the fun begins. The previous reviewer had it right. Cheap hardware. The springs in the back - try adjusting those without stripping the heads. You have to be very careful. That's not the problem though. The problem is that even if you tune 1/2 step before locking down the strings at the neck and adjust your bridge fine tuners to the half way point as suggested, there's still not enough latitude to bring the strings into tune, so it's back and forth, unlock the neck, tune, lock the neck, say to yourself WTF over and over and over again. Finally, the neck torque just pulls all the strings flat against the frets. What fun. People have been bringing me their guitars for years to set up, but this sucks.

Not worth the money - Iron Label Quality at Best
What is your opinion of this product?
Out of the box, the finish and wood were very impressive looking. Neck shape was also comfortable. However, this is where the good stuff ends. The worst part about this guitar is the extremely cheap hardware. A string lock screw was already stripped out of the box, and a saddle screw became stripped after the first setup. The tension spring screws were also of terrible quality. Once "setup" as close as it can get, tremolo has a very hard time staying in tune with any use of the bar. Pickups are a matter of personal taste, so I will leave that out of the review. $1399 should not be the price of a guitar that lacks so much. There are plenty of guitars for half that price (or less) that will deliver much more than the PWM10. In the process of sending this guitar back.
