The ANB306 is a six string solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in 2016. It is a signature model for American bassist and composer Adam Nitti. It is made in Indonesia as part of the Premium line. In the United States it has been referred to as the ANB306E.

The ANB306 features a neck through body construction with SR series double-cutaway ash body wings with a quilted maple top mated to a maple and purpleheart neck with a 24 fret purpleheart fingerboard with abalone oval position markers. Components include a pair of Bartolini passive soapbar bass pickups with a Bartolini preamp, a Hipshot A-style bridge, a plastic nut and Gotoh tuners.

The ANB306 is the second signature model created for Nitti, following the ANB1006. Since then a five string model, the ANB205, has been introduced.
