The AR120 is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1985.

The AR120 features a double-cutaway arched-top basswood body mated to a set-in maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with small dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez IBZ humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls with push-push Duo Sound coil-split switches on each volume and a fixed bridge-tailpiece combo.

The basswood body makes this one of the lighter weight Artist models that have been produced.

The AR120 was discontinued after 1987.
