The PGM100 is a solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1989. It is the initial signature model produced for American guitarist Paul Gilbert as part of the Paul Gilbert series. It is based on the RG770 and features the painted F-holes which would become a signature of the series.

Other features include DiMarzio pickups, a Wizard neck and the Edge tremolo. Budget models aside, the PGM100 is one of the only two PGM models with a double locking tremolo, the other being the PGM300.

In 2009, it was reissued as the PGM100RE in honor of the 20th anniversary of the PGM series.

Both the PGM3 and PGM30 PGM budget models have a finish based on the PGM100.
