Ibanez Announces the Eric Krasno Signature Model

A rock-solid semi-hollow guitar comes loaded with a pair of Ibanez Super 58 pickups.

Bensalem, PA (February 13, 2015) -- Funk guitarists everywhere noted of the introduction of the first Eric Krasno signature model last year, and now the second, more affordable offering to bear his name has just been introduced at Winter NAMM 2015 — dubbed the EKM10T.

Very few guitarists in recent memory have been able to merge the soulful sounds of the blues, the intricacies of jazz, and the energy of funk, as appealingly as Eric Krasno. As a founding member of Soulive, Krasno has mesmerized audiences worldwide for well over a decade. Along the journey, an Ibanez has always been by his side.

Built to Krasno’s specs, the signature EKM10T captures the sonic ingredients of the funk/jazz master’s style. The incredibly resonant semi-hollow features a Wine Red finish and gorgeous Flamed Maple top, back, and sides, along with a three-piece, Mahogany/ Maple set-in neck with a bone nut. The bound Ebony fingerboard sports medium frets with edges that are noticeably smooth to a sliding hand—the product of the Artstar fret edge treatment. For the moments when inspiration strikes, the ART2 roller bridge with VBS80 Vintage Vibrato guarantees rock-solid tuning. Neck and bridge pickups are none other than the famous Ibanez Super 58s, known for their balanced tone character and sonic fullness, whether restrained to “jazz-clean” or cranked up to “gritty rockin’ blues.” A hard shell case is included.
