Ibanez EDB600
It's basically your decent quality modern bass. With a few extra features, like the ergodyne material it's made out of.

Price paid



It has a very slim "fast" neck, which means the strings are a little closer together than most basses. It IS on the heavy side, so a small person might have a problem playing standing up for long periods of time.

This is a very well built bass. I think it will last lifetimes with regular maintanace. It is very solid, so it can be manhandled with little worry of damage. It is made of very strong material. I often come across cracked basses in pawn shops. Usually where the neck meets the body, I dont think it's really a problem for this bass though.


This bass is capable of producing a very wide range of tones. The pickups are great because they are noisy like Fenders. It is an active bass with 3 eq knobs for LOWS MIDS and HIGHs, so the sonic possibilities are limitless. It is however a relatively modern sounding bass, but can recreate vintage tones with the proper processing. The edb600 is made out of a man made material created for bass guitars, I think thats what gives it the distinctive tone.


I LOVE this bass. Not only does it have everything I need to play a wide variety of genres, but the fact that its so comfortable to play makes it my favorite bass. I think I would buy another one if i ever lost this one. I call it the Giger, it reminds me of some of his paintings. It has a really modern look, and sounds incredible.

MGR/Jeffultura's review"Ibanez EDB600 Ergodyne"

Ibanez EDB600
I bought my bass in 1999 from Sam Ash for just under $500. I tried a few basses out including the Soundgear but this was the one I fell inlove with.

First off, the neck is nice and small making it very easy to fly around the frets. The bass itself is very light and fits perfectly against your body. The sound is very versatile though I'm not sure how good it if for funk style playing.

I have no complaints. The one knock I've seen from people who like this bass is about the low end and having difficulties with the action. I had this problem aswell when I tried tuing my 4 string down to C. It was easily solved by using Rotosound Flatwound strings (the heaviest gage they have..I believe the E string was a 115.) The low end was like melodic thunder and I had no problem with buzzing at all.

It's one of those basses that no matter what level you are at..you pick it up and go..hey I can play this thing. It's a beautifully made bass and just looks cool.

Excellent bass. I recommend it anyone.

MGR/James's review"Ibanez EDB600"

Ibanez EDB600
I got this at Guitar Center for about $400. I tried a couple of different body types and this felt good.

It has a beautiful tone when compared to other basses in it's price range. The neck is slightly thicker than the GSR series but thin enough for easy chords.

This is somthing that comes with most Ibanez basses and that's a somewhat narrow neck. It's a personal prefrence thing but its still important.

It got dropped while I was standing on a chair. It broke a coffee cup and a computer monitor but the bass came out without a scratch. It still plays well and that was a year ago.

The other guy that reviewed the bass is an idiot. This is a wonderful instrument for the price. I can't think of a reason someone wouldn't want this bass. You might try some of the new BTB basses though. I haven't played one but they look pretty sweet.

MGR/Anonymous's review"Ibanez EDB600 Ergodyne"

Ibanez EDB600
I actually bought this bass, unlike most of the basses that I just play around with in my store. It runs around $500 at most shops, and is really good for that price.

To tell you the truth I picked up this bass at first just because it looked good, but it was the feel of it that made me not want to put it down. It's made of Luthite, which is unbelievably light, and provides a really nice tone. The body also had a gorgeous grey/black eel look to it, which is indeed something that spawn envy. One of the good things about it is that even a smaller person like my son can even play this bass without discomfort because of it's shape and weight. Now to the tone, which is pretty standard for a 4 string. It doesn't hit those punchy stomach lows like some of the other models, but it was really thick an I heard no break-up on some of my larger Mesa combos. The neck is easy to play, and against my surprise it stayed in tone the whole while I used it.

Takes mass amounts of care in my opinion. I feel this is more of a studio bass that something you kill on stage! The body is easy to blemish and goes dull as soon as you finger prints touch it. Not as low as some of the other 4 strings I've played in it's range either, despite it's still a great one.

The construction other than the faulty finish is excellent. This is definately a body bass, meaning it was designed with comfort to the human body in mind. It has active electronics, 3 piece maple neck with 24 fret medium fingerboard, 3-band EQ, and DHX pickups.

It's a very versatile bass. Maybe it doesn't have the lowest tones, but for people who play multiple genre's of music and need a reliable bass, I'd say give it a try. It'd also definately be a highlight of any bass collection.

Bronislas's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez EDB600
- In which country was it made? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
In Korea, in the same factories as Cort if I'm not mistaken. Korean manufacturing by the way, it's all good. I am impressed by the finish.

- How many frets, what kinds of microorganisms and their configuration?
24 frets, two passive pickups and large active electronics (3 band eq) Ibanez.

- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
Ibanez bridge, which makes me think Hipshot bridges.

- What are the settings (volume, tone, selector micro ...)?
3-band eq, volume, and micro switch.

- What kind of stick?
Channel pitch long (34 "), very thin, with a profile" U ".


- The handle is it nice?
Very, before I had a bass Epiphone EB-0 with a handle short-scale fine, and I had no trouble to me.

- Access to acute (last string) Is it easy?
The body is made of a resin, the body is curved at the last frets to facilitate the slap. I do not see what we could do better honestly ...

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
It joins the previous point, the resin provides a lot of quirks, but compared to the EDA and EDC models, ergonomics is more classical but equally effective.

- Do you get easily a good sound ...?
The pickups and electronics are very clean. A little too much, lover growl refrain. The sound may seem a bit cold, but I appreciate its definition. It delivers all its potential mediator or slap in my opinion. Finger in the manhandling she also becomes a little fun. The weight is not a dominant criterion in me, I think it is correct, even if it is heavier than the Epiphone EB-0.


- Are they suitable for your style of music?
I used to work my game It fits everywhere and I'm really not disappointed.

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
Microbass a Peavey or straight into the PC. In both cases I do not notice any problems

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
Like I said earlier, this is not a Precision, but it can issue a lot of serious, medium (or even too!), Ditto for the treble. We can sculpt the sound you want, pouvru sought to remain in the sounds clear enough.

- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
I love to play mediator and slapper, but the knobs or tampering with a focus on neck pickup, I can have very serious tones that I like.


- For how long have you been using it?
Two months.

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
I love its reliability, it hardly goes out of tune! I liked the smell a little less of "oil" (resin requires). But leaving it in my room all the time, and by airing it I do not feel its smell. My friends do not notice it.

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
A little while the very low range bass over 1500 €. New it had to be within the average range. But I have heard that she was the better for low slapper in its lineup. I have not tried everything, but it's true that it sends slap. If it were not so "classic" and if she had a little more personality, it would have been a popular instrument I think. On occasion, I must say it really pulverized any new model would cost in the same waters. I might have are much more expensive models that I keep for work.

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
Without hesitation! It's bass work, one that never disappoints, which reserves no surprises. This is the best shade, which does not shine by his exuberance, but is invaluable. Before I played the bass as a hobby. Today I have a reliable tool with which I want to advance, for little more than a pack a beginner! Hard to beat.

I am a beginner, a bass. Question I find that it's not sound too bad but can be a little cold.
I plugged into a preamp tube art has to have a slight grain. The equalizer is pretty low so we easily find the sound that one seeks.

The handle is incroyabement handy, extra fine! Jouabilit maximum. That's what makes the quality of this model intrinsque. For my part I use a pull rope end trs (extra light) 30,50,70 and 90 for the E string. The sound is great!

Beware of any sharp rglage same, I play often Slap (it lends it well) and loves to have my rope trs prs Handle


I play jazz, and I accompany the electro (effects) I play an Ampeg B-1, everything is perfect


I've had + - 5 years, I shall not change for anything else.
to dpart, I wanted to invest at least double the price of this bass, I came across it and I thought .... is that the!

Everything is already said


The handle end trs wound those who play fast and often changing tresq strings.
Access to acute: Quite simply the body begins the 24me fret.
Form very erogoniomique, the fact that it is slightly hollow can carry very high if desired, and also play the bass.
get a good sound with the equalizer ais.


I am rather in mtal eccellente and is for that. She slams well and produces a somewhat cold and less wound has some other
Test on a 4 * 100W lamp on a Peavey Basic 50 and a 200GB Line. The sound is captured in all cases, and it sounds great for rock em tal


I use it for a month and frankly it is excellent! With the experience I would do this choice I think!

Everything is said dj


La Lancha is enjoyable, the acute CHAC is good ergonomics too. There comes a good sound for the price, attack a lot.


I'm mainly mtal with this low aps worries it works well, we're in on the other hand for ibanez something a little more round c forcment not empty, another c bcp does not see jazz men with low c egenre.


I have 5 years and no worries, the report RPIX quality is excellent for me but now it has had its day and I look dsormais invest in a jazz bass. Exprience with this choice I would do without worry but beware this is not a versatile instrument trs my taste.

Croed's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez EDB600
Made in Korea, Ergodyne Corp., handle end in Saddle 24 frets, 2 active pickups.
Pramplification active (9v battery) 3 boost (bass, mdium, acute), which potentiomtre a balance between the pickup and one volume.


The handle is trs enjoyable by its narrow width, Access in an acute very easy.
The set is very well equilibrated against what by what is heavy, compared with a low wooden body good but you get used to all the same with a good strap.
Is obtained quickly we want legalization, with its hyper-potentiomtres prcis.


I play many styles of music, its major flaw is the lack of sustain and slap sound that does not sound terrible at all compare my precision bass.
I play an old amp kestrel (a tasteless), so your exact is not terrible, but I tried it on other bass amp worthy of the name, and I realized that I ' had the sound, prcis with a strong attack with a nice bass sound diffrent certainly more conventional but no less inintressante.


It's going to be 2 years that I use, I am satisfied and rev it a wonder complte
with my bp.
I tried other before acqurir. But I had a good budjet of 600 euros and for me
It was the best-recherchprix qualitson report. It is on this choice I would do with a still lower that the more classic complterai
