The 2681 is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1995. It is a reissue of the original 2681, known as the "Bob Weir Pro Model". They were produced in Japan by Terada, with production beginning in 1994.

The reissue was part of the "80s Custom Legend" series which was offered in Japan in the mid-1990s. It was introduced at the 1995 Summer NAMM show and sold in very limited numbers.[1]

The 2681 features a light ash double cutaway body with small horns and German carve top mated to a set-in laminated hard maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and pearloid Tree of Life vine inlays. Components include an original Gibraltar fixed bridge, original Quik Change tailpiece with scalloped ornament, a pair of Ibanez Super 80 humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls and Gotoh tuning machines.

Although only the Natural finish was presented in the catalogs, it was also available in a Antique Violin finish.

The 2681 reissue was discontinued in 1998.
