EDC710CBF

For 2003, the ultra-modern Ibanez EDC takes another step beyond. Instead of the standard two humbucking pickups found on previous EDC models, the new EDC's feature a triple coil pickup with three settings--trad, bright and attack. This addition makes the ergonomic EDC capable of rapid and radical changes in tone.

Comments Ritchie Umemura of the Ibanez bass division, "Players now have three very different Luthite-bodied basses to choose from: the EDA, which features a humbucking pickup and a piezo bridge; the EDB which features two humbuckers, and now the EDC with a triple coil pick up."

The new Ergodyne basses will be featured in both 4 and 5-string models. The EDC710 4-string lists for $679.99; the EDC715 5-string lists for $749.99

EDC Key Features

  • Ergonomically shaped Luthite body features built in thumb rest, a scooped out area to get under the strings, and a raised control area so you don't have to lean over to check settings
  • Extra long horn balances the bass so you don't have to.
  • Unique triple coil passive humbucking pickup with active EQ allows instantaneous tone changes--"trad" (double coil in series), "bright" (coil tapped), and "attack" (coil tapped with capacitor).

Luthite is a man-made material specifically formulated for electric stringed instruments. Ibanez has featured basses made of Luthite since the 1996 introduction of the Ergodyne EDB bass.
