Electric Guitars - Jake Bowen is a killer guitarist. (He's the nephew of John Petrucci, so why wouldn't he be?) He's also in a kil...ler band, Periphery. And so the stage is set for Jake's signature axe, the Ibanez JBM100.

Sweetwater's prog metal contingent loves the Ibanez JBM100.

In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the "Ibanez Salvador" name, which was later shortened to "Ibanez." Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative guitars and had begun manufacturing the original designs that the company is now known for. Handcrafted by the company's highly skilled Japanese luthiers, the Ibanez JBM100 is a guitar that delivers outstanding tone, effortless playability, and stunning good looks.

Acoustic Guitars - The Martin HD-35 6-string acoustic guitar's brawny dreadnought shape and tried-and-true spruce/rosewood tonewoo...d combination provides you with projection that's nothing short of astonishing. To create the HD-35, Martin fused tonal elements of their pre-war herringbone D-28 with that of their D-35. The result is a powerful sonic personality that's enhanced further by scalloped X-bracing, delivering meaty bass and fat midrange. Complete with a classic herringbone inlay, the HD-35 6-string acoustic guitar delivers pure Martin tone.Martin HD-35 6-string Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:A Martin dreadnought that delivers the best of both worldsCarefully-selected tonewood combination for phenomenal toneLoaded with attention-grabbing appointmentsA Martin dreadnought that delivers the best of both worldsMartin's early dreadnoughts set the standard for acoustic guitar tone. Of these dreadnoughts, the herringbone D-28 was probably the most famous and sought after. Aside from its distinctive herringbone trim, the D-28 featured scalloped X-bracing, which enhanced its volume and tone. The D-35 was the first Martin dreadnought to sport a 3-piece back. Although the 3-piece back was originally designed out of necessity when woods were scarce, it became desirable due to its attractive appearance. What makes the HD-35 unique is that it features both the scalloped X-bracing of the D-28 and the 3-piece back of the D-35.Carefully-selected tonewood combination for phenomenal toneYou just can't beat the sound of solid spruce and solid genuine rosewood, and the Martin HD-35 spares no expense on its tonewoods. You'll love the crisp sound of the HD-35's 3-piece solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, and they look fantastic. What's more, the HD-35 is topped with solid Sitka spruce, adding rich and mellow overtones. When you imagine what an acoustic guitar is supposed to sound like, this is it!Loaded with attention-grabbing appointmentsDecadent inlays of black and white Boltaron adorn the HD-35's back and sides, matching its smooth body and fretboard binding and cresting its beautiful 3-piece solid East Indian rosewood back. Even more pronounced is the bold herringbone inlay on its Sitka spruce top.

Acoustic Guitars - Many discerning guitarists instantly name the D-28 as their all-time favorite Martin, and the Martin D-28 Marqu...is is the latest incarnation of this legendary acoustic dreadnought guitar. Pre-WWII (the "Golden Era") Martin guitars are prized for their distinctly organic tone and craftsmanship, and routinely sell for tens of thousands of dollars. Get the D-28 Marquis in your hands and pluck a few notes, and you'll instantly recognize the alluring tone and incredible quality that made 1930s Martin guitars some of the most coveted instruments on Earth. You may never get the opportunity to own a true "Golden Era" Martin guitar - but with the Martin D-28 Marquis acoustic guitar in your hands, you won't be missing out.Martin D-28 Marquis Acoustic Guitar at a Glance: The all-time standard for acoustics The direct descendant of classic D-28s Big sound, full bass Quality tonewoods used throughoutThe all-time standard for acoustics Among the great instruments Martin makes, it's safe to say that none has enjoyed more popularity than their line of dreadnoughts, or D-size, guitars. Currently regarded as the "standard" acoustic guitar, dreadnoughts including the D-28 first became popular for backing up vocals, fiddles, and banjos in country and bluegrass music. The D-28's popularity steadily rose as more and more musicians heard it. The direct descendant of classic D-28s The "Golden Era" of Martin is expertly represented in the D-28 Marquis with its solid Adirondack spruce top and East Indian rosewood back and sides. The D-28 Marquis is built to the same vintage specs as the treasured guitars from the '30s, and a special aging toner is applied to the top to add the impression of a well-aged instrument. Big sound, full bass The D-28 Marquis offers the deep bass response that's made Martin dreadnoughts so popular. Yet it also has a high-end presence that sings out even in heavy instrumentation. The D-28 Marquis is both loud and subtle, and has a quick response with excellent note definition. Quality tonewoods used throughout A quality acoustic guitar is all about the wood, and the D-28 Marquis delivers no-compromise quality. The top is of solid Adirondack spruce. Similar to high-elevation European alpine spruce, this wood was abundant in the 1930s and used on Martin guitars of that era. Its extraordinary tone, prized for its projection and tonal clarity, contributes significantly to the D-28 Marquis sound. The D-28's back and sides are made of solid East Indian rosewood, a classic Martin material. The D-28 Marquis' back is further reinforced with Sitka "Golden Era"-style braces. A solid mahogany neck with solid black ebony fingerboard gives the D-28 Marquis awesome playing ease to match its awesome sound! Typically the action is set higher on a D-28 than on a D-18, 35, 42 or 45, owing to the instrument's bluegrass roots where the instrument performs with loud mandolins, banjos and Dobros. A heavier gauge string and tad higher action makes the guitar louder (well-played D-28s are often referred to as "acoustic cannons.") The D-28 Marquis is an American classic.
