The 2635 is an Artist series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1977. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The 2635 features a full-sized, full-hollow body with a Florentine cutaway which is reminiscent of a Gibson ES-175. It has a maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in rock maple neck with a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl and abalone split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 80 humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, black pickup rings, an ebony bridge with ebony saddle, a custom trapeze tailpiece, a bone and brass nut, speed knobs with pointers, and VelveTune tuning machines with half moon buttons.

For 1978 the knobs were replaced with the new rubberized Sure Grips.

The 2635 was discontinued after 1978.
