Tailored for Modern Fingerstyle Playing by Virtuoso Jon Gomm

In 2012, acoustic guitar virtuoso Jon Gomm exploded onto the world stage with a viral performance of “Passionflower,” a song showcasing his revolutionary and undeniably emotive style. As part of the modern acoustic fingerstyle movement pioneered by luminaries such as Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges, Jon incorporates percussive taps, slapped harmonics, and alternate tunings, among other advanced techniques. In pushing the acoustic guitar to its limits, he has made numerous modifications to his past instruments to maximize their music-making potential. Teaming with Ibanez, Jon has designed an instrument that is precisely tailored for modern fingerstyle technique and available to you: the Ibanez Jon Gomm Signature JGM5 Acoustic-electric Guitar. The JGM5 boasts a tapping-friendly, asymmetric jumbo body; an extended 25-3/4-inch scale length; and a Fishman PowerTap Earth Blend preamp to highlight even the subtlest nuances of a performance. Guitarists at Irvine Art & Music have been captivated by Jon's unique and imaginative approach to fingerstyle playing, so we couldn’t be more excited by the arrival of this equally unique guitar. Transform your acoustic performances into fully realized soundscapes with the Ibanez Jon Gomm Signature JGM5 acoustic-electric! 

Asymmetric jumbo body with Thermo-Aged solid Sitka spruce top

The Jon Gomm Signature JGM5’s fingerstyle-centric design begins with its asymmetric jumbo body shape, which provides plenty of surface area for tapping and a focused low-end response for extra thump. Crafted from a Thermo-Aged solid Sitka spruce top with pau ferro back and sides, the JGM5 is supremely responsive with a wide dynamic range and massive projection. It also sports a Macassar ebony top-loading bridge for fast string changes and improved percussive tones. 

Extended scale neck, optimized for down tuning

Down tuning is a key element of modern fingerstyle acoustic playing; however, when down tuning on acoustic guitars with traditional scale lengths, you might sacrifice punch, sustain, and feel. To resolve this issue, the Jon Gomm JGM5 features a 25-3/4-inch scale, which helps keep the guitar in proper tension across myriad alternate tunings. Plus, the JGM5’s okoume neck — capped with a Macassar ebony fretboard and jumbo frets — serves up bell-like slapped harmonics, crisp pull-offs and hammer-ons, and rich, articulate strumming with detailed note separation. 

Outstanding amplified acoustic tone

If you’re a solo artist like Jon Gomm, then you understand the challenge of filling up sonic real estate during a live performance using only an acoustic guitar. Jon often relies on blending contact pickups and undersaddle pickups to capture different aspects of his playing style. However, for those who prefer more straightforward electronics, the JGM5 offers the Fishman PowerTap Earth Blend preamp, offering outstanding amplified acoustic tone and enough control to sculpt your ideal sound!
