This EX170L features a plywood body mated to a one-piece maple neck with a traditional neck joint with a metal plate. It has a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. The pickups are Ibanez EX humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions flanking an EX single coil. Other components include a synchronized tremolo bridge.

The EX170 is a right-handed version.
