Roasted Jatoba Fingerboard Offers Smooth Playability

The EC-256 features a roasted jatoba fingerboard that enhances stability and feel. Jatoba has a tight, focused tone, while the roasting process improves tuning stability and increases playability.

The generous 22 jumbo frets make it easy to execute bends, vibratos and rapid runs with precision.

The neck pickup balances warmth and clarity, while the bridge pickup provides plenty of punch and articulation. Toggle between thick humbucking tones and bright single-coil sounds with the push-pull coil tap. The matte black pickup covers give the EC-256 a sleek modern look.
