The EX270 is an EX series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1992. It was made in Korea. This version with the maple fretboard was offered only in the US market.
This EX270 features a light American maple body mated to a one-piece maple neck with a traditional neck joint with a metal plate. It has a maple fingerboard with dot position markers. The pickups are Ibanez humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions flanking a single coil. Other components include a single-locking tremolo bridge and a locking nut.
For 1993 the 22-fret neck was replaced with a 24-fret version.
The EX270 (rosewood fretboard) is a related model that was sold in the European market. Multiple differences exist between the two models including the pickups and the type of wood used for the body and fretboard. The EX370 is a related model with a double locking tremolo among other differences.
The EX270 was discontinued after 1993 along with the rest of the EX line.
