Earlier this year, Jon Gomm partnered with Ibanez to release his JGM10 signature acoustic guitar – an intricately crafted instrument that was designed in an attempt to make boutique-esque fingerstyle-ready six-strings available to the masses.

The guitar certainly made strong strides towards smashing this goal thanks to a series of seriously impressive specs, though the fairly hefty price point of $3,399 still meant it was out of reach for some eager beginners.
