JPM100 P1

The JPM100 is a solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1995. It is a signature model of guitarist John Petrucci. Besides the Hoshino 90th Anniversary JPM model, the JPM90HAM, it is the only John Petrucci series production model.

The name JPM100B was used for the JPM100 P1 in Europe and Asia. It is still unclear were the 'B' stands for. The original Japan only release of the P1 featured multi-coloured pickups, like the one John was playing at the time, and is believed to be the 'JPM100A' and the JPM100B being the following batch, but this is never officially confirmed.

The JPM100 features an American basswood body mated to a custom maple neck with a 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with off-set dot inlays. Components include dual DiMarzio humbucking pickups and a low-profile double locking tremolo bridge.

Pickups Edit

The standard pickups for the JPM100 are the DiMarzio Air Norton and the DiMarzio Steve's Special. Some catalogs list the pickups as being the DiMarzio Norton Lite and/or the DiMarzio SFP (Steve's Favorite Pickup) but these are believed to be the same pickups. The first JPM, used to record the "Images And Words" album, used the DiMarzio Humbucker From Hell in the neck and the DiMarzio The Tone Zone in the bridge.
