The EKM10T is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It is a signature model for American funk/jazz guitarist Eric Krasno. It was initially made in China, but production was moved to Indonesia from 2019.

The EKM10T 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 and maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and acrylic and abalone split block position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a roller bridge with a vibrato tailpiece and a bone nut.

For 2019 the mahogany and maple neck was replaced with nyatoh and maple and the Ibanez vibrato was replaced with a Bigsby B70.

The EKM100 is a more expensive Japanese-made version without the tremolo bridge.
