The EKM100 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2013. It is a signature model for American funk/jazz guitarist Eric Krasno. It is made in Japan by FujiGen.
The EKM100 features a thin, double cutaway, semi-hollow body design with an arched flame maple top with ƒ holes and multi-layer binding and flame maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and pearl and abalone split block position markers. Components include dual DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Gotoh Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Gotoh tailpiece, a bone nut and Gotoh locking tuning machines.
For 2015 the pearl and abalone inlays were replaced with acrylic and abalone. For 2018 the wood species was changed from flame maple to figured anigre and the neck species was clarified as African mahogany.
The EKM10T is a more affordable Chinese or Indonesian-made version with a tremolo bridge.
