What's special about this item?
Feature: What it does:
DiMarzio Titan 7 pickups Jake Bowen's signature pickups, aggressive tone
Jatoba fretboard Strong midrange presence and punch
Jumbo frets Makes bending strings easier
Wizard III neck Super-fast fretting and maximum comfort
Just as each Periphery release seems to turn progressive metal around another 180 degrees, Jake Bowen, the source of the band's rich tapestry of guitar-based ambient soundscapes, has also moved the boundaries of guitar design and performance with his Ibanez signature instrument--the JBM10FX.

Using the Ibanez RGA as a foundation, Bowen's departures from that iconic instrument are many. The JBM10FX's Maple Wizard III neck allows for warp-speed fretboard work and smooth access to the upper frets. The JBM10FX features a bound Jatoba fretboard with jumbo frets that bears Jake's own custom inlay at the 12th fret. Add a reverse headstock for yet another striking element of visual distinction. The key feature of the JBM10FX is its fixed bridge design, a first for the Ibanez JBM series. Jake chose the Gibraltar Standard II Bridge, designed to provide optimal transfer of each string's vibration through the guitar body. Its smooth surface also maximizes playing comfort. Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads provide superior tuning stability and help to expedite string changes. The JBM10FX also features Jake's signature DiMarzio Titan pickups, developed under Jake's supervision. Jake describes them as, "the perfect combination of tight and aggressive." The JBM10FX ships tuned to drop-C (1D, 2A, 3F, 4C, 5G, 6C).

This guitar is what the description says. The pickups are super tight and focused. They have a lot of note definition even when high gain. What i didn't like is that they are not that hot in terms of gain. In my opinion, they are medium gain. Which means is more harder to do pinch harmonics in comparison to other metal pickups. Leads sound very good, but didn't like the cleans. The neck material is a little rough in comparison to ebony fretboards. Locking tuners on this guitar are a big win. The gold hardware matches absolutely perfect with the white matt finish.
