Bensalem, PA (January 19, 2021) -- Designed with careful attention paid to the specialized requirements of the renowned fingerstyle guitarist Jon Gomm, the Ibanez JGM10 is a new and exciting step forward in the design of fingerstyle specific acoustic guitars. This instrument makes use of a number of specifically tailored design elements, not least of which, is the distinctively-shaped asymmetrical jumbo body shape. The body design is not intended solely for enhancing the acoustic properties, which it does, but also to provide ample surface area at the front and back of the instrument for the percussive elements and accents associated with Jon’s playing style. The body itself is comprised of a Thermo Aged Solid Sitka Spruce top and Pau Ferro back and sides. The body construction also incorporates Thermo Aged Spruce Modified X-M Bracing which improves the acoustic tonal response, delivering more pronounced lows and brighter high end. The neck also features a wider 45mm nut width, allowing for more space between strings for precise access, a critical element for fingerstyle. The guitar is also equipped with Fishman Rare Earth Mic Blend Active Soundhole pickup and Tap pickup paired with the Fishman PowerTap Earth Blend Preamp. This electronics combination yields and extremely natural and organic sounding amplified sounds that preserve the true acoustic properties of the instrument and brilliantly encapsulate the responsiveness of this singular and distinctive instrument, designed for the preeminent player in his respective style.
