The PGM600 is a PGM series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1994. It is a signature model of American guitarist Paul Gilbert.

Unlike most PGM models, it is based on the Ibanez Iceman shape and has some specifications which are unusual for the PGM series. For example the set-in 22-fret neck, dual-humbucker pickup configuration and the mahogany body. It does feature Paul Gilbert's signature painted F-holes and eschews a tone control.

The PGM600 was introduced along with another odd-shaped PGM, the PGM700. Both were available for a limited time in Japan only. The PGM600 was discontinued in 2006.
