Hmm... what's this?

I was wandering around the Ibanez international site today, and stumbled across the EDR series.

Anybody have more info on these? They look like luthite-bodied JS/Radius models with TRS trems, flat paint jobs, top-mounted jacks and crappy H-S-H pickups. Ergodyne guitars?

Why don't we get these over here? How similar are they to a JS/Radius? How much do they go for?

I'm thinkin' "chrome project guitar"

Interesting, that beveling looks way more JS than R.

Oh, and as long as i'm asking all these questions, does anybody know specifically what the differences are between the SAT-10, SAT-30 and FAT-20 bridges? They all look like variations on the "Satellite" bridge, but are offered on different levels of models.

This site from France gives a little more info and more photos, but still no clear body shots front and back. Try to ignore the crappy Babel translation.

Much better pics, now it's like a JS meets an S, the bottom is slimmer and more S like, as is the front mounted output. Clunky looking AANJ though.

Yeah, i'm wondering if the back is flat like an SA or concave like some of the Ergodyne basses. Definitely a clunky AANJ... looks like a Talman AANJ or worse.

The lower-end models with the "FAT-20" bridge look like very moddable guitars.

And what is up with those "Designed by EMG" pickups? Re-branded Selects?

Don't worry, Glen! You can get them with non-locking trems, too! (No fixed-bridge model, though.)

Not sure about the electronics in them, but they aren't bad looking guitars IMO. Anyone know the retail on them in the US if you were to import or buy overseas?

There are some rather nice pictures of them

here,

here and

here which were stolen from Machinehead(my fave UK store)'s site. it doesn't show much more detail but they're larger so the beveling is a little more obvious.

I'm really diggin' those... the flat finishes look surprisingly good. I still want to see a full shot of the back.

Too bad they put the ugly Ergodyne output jack on them (and WHY on the face?). The TRS needs no mention, either. I'd be more interested in the non-locking version, which unfortuntately doens't have the slick matte nickel finish on the hardware.

Looks more like a Satin finish, and I'm digging the satin hardware...

Too bad it's TRaSh trem on it.

My friend has an EDR470 (NOT EX) that he got half a year ago. It was listed for 3500 HK dollars, around $450 US.

HIs one came wiht the AH1 and AH2 hums, and the AS1?? single, black (not cosmo) hardware, and the Lo TRS II trem. Its korean made.

I reckon they do look rather like JS's, but i havnt taken a detailed look yet. (my first reaction when i saw a JS in real life was "It looks like my friends EDR!")

And about the back being concave or flat, im giong to his house for a jam session, so ill give it a quick look, and post an answer sometime later

If you have access to a digital camera, some clear front, back and angle shots would be appreciated!

Those are beautiful. Does this mean we can expect a full blown us ergodyne model with real trem or fixed bridge options? And whats with the designed by emg pickups? are they active? (these better Have 24 FRETS or ill lose my mind)
