The 580T, also known as the 580T Turbot or simply Turbot, is a Roadstar Pro series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1987. It is the only model produced with this particular body style. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The 580T body shape is inspired by the Fender Telecaster but it has a contoured top and back rather than the slab body of a typical Telecaster. Aside from the body shape it differs significantly from the Tele design. The 580T features a mahogany body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with small dot position markers. Components include an Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a Back Stop stabilizer, a pair of IBZ/USA humbucking pickups and Gotoh tuning machines.

The 580B Ballback is a similar model with a contoured back. Neither the Turbot nor the Ballback were very successful in terms of sales and they were discontinued a few months after being introduced.
