The nicest of the Ergodyne series, the EDA is higly sculpted and made of luthite, a composite material. Luthite: sounds weird out of your mouth, sounds awesome out an amp. This is by far the most comfortable bass I've ever played. The EDA series comes with two pickups: an active soapbar, and a fishman piezo system. (you'll find this exact piezo system and the exact same bridge system on the Parker Fly bass, for about $2,400) It also comes equipped with a mono-rail bridge system, meaning that each string has it's own bridge. All original (even the strings), flawless. Pictures and more info available at: http://www.ibanez.com/guitars/guitar.asp?model=EDA900 It sounds really cool. $400 If nobody decides to buy this, i'll be forced to sell it on ebay, and I don't want to do that. I'd prefer not to have to ship it, but if you want to pay for shipping costs, I'd oblige. I'm about 45 minutes west of Chicago, and I go into the city every day for school, so it wouldn't be a problem for me to meet somewhere for an exchange. Thanks for looking, and have a nice day.
