Just as each Periphery release seems to morph progressive metal 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 JBM27.
Using the Ibanez RGA as a foundation, Bowen's departures from that iconic instrument are many. The JBM27's 3-piece Maple Wizard II-7 neck allows for smooth access to the upper frets and increased sustain. The JBM27 features a Mahogany body with a Maple top, and a bound Ebony fretboard with jumbo frets that bears Jake's own custom inlay at the 12th fret. Then add a reverse headstock for yet another element of visual distinction. Given the stress a Periphery show can exert on his instrument, having a trem system that is both easily adjustable and highly stable was critical for Bowen.
Jake chose the Ibanez Edge Zero II-7 bridge--not only for its inspiring, reliable performance, but also for the way it stays clear of his picking hand. Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads help provide superior tuning stability and expedite string changes. The JBM27 also features Bowen's signature DiMarzio Titan 7 pickups, which DiMarzio developed under Jake's close direction. Bowen describes them as, "the perfect combination of tight and aggressive." The JBM27 ships tuned to drop-G# (1D#, 2A#, 3F#, 4C#, 5G#, 6D#, 7G#) and comes with a hardshell case.
