The PGMFRM2 is a PGM series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2009. It is a signature model of American guitarist Paul Gilbert. It is also known as the Fireman. The Fireman is a completely new design and not related to previous PGM models. It was issued in the 20th anniversary year of the PGM series.

Paul Gilbert designed the guitar by reversing the original Iceman body shape and adding a cutaway.[1] The design was originally known as the 'Reverse Iceman', until a fan suggested the 'Fireman' (i.e. the opposite of an Iceman) moniker after seeing the guitar in a video Paul Gilbert posted on the internet.[2]

Features include a mahogany body with a cherry top, a mahogany neck, DiMarzio pickups and the Gibraltar II bridge.

Another Fireman model with a triple single coil setup was released as the PGMFRM1.
