The 440R is a Radius series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1988 as part of the Roadstar Pro series. It was made by FujiGen in Japan.

The 440R features a basswood body bolted to a maple Ultra neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups with a humbucker at the bridge and single coils in the neck and middle positions, and an Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut.

The 440R is similar to the 540R but with Ibanez pickups rather than US-made DiMarzio pickups.

The 440R was discontinued after 1992.
