The 2710 is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1978. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The 2710 is a cross between a 2618 and a Musician MC300 mixing the Artist body and headstock shape with the neck-through-body "sandwich" construction and pickups of the Musician. It features body wings of laminated ash (top and back), maple and zebra wood mated to a seven piece maple and walnut neck running the full length of the guitar. The neck has a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with abalone dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 88 humbucking pickups mounted in integrated plastic covers each controlled with a Tri-sound switch, a Tune-o-matic style Gibraltar bridge mounted in a sustain block recessed into the neck, a Gibraltar slotted tailpiece with scalloped "cloud" ornament, a bone and brass nut, rubberized Sure Grip control knobs and VelveTune machine heads.

The 2700 is a related model with an active EQ system.

The 2710 was discontinued after 1978.
