The AR250 is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1980. It was made in Japan.

The AR250 features an carved ash double-cutaway body with German carve edges and creme binding mated to a set-in maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and pearloid dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez humbucking pickups mounted in black pickup rings with individual volume and tone controls, a Gibraltar Tune-O-Matic style bridge and Quik Change tailpiece with an ornamental scalloped plate, rubberized Sure Grip control knobs and VelveTune machine heads. A Tri-sound switch allows the pickup (or pickups?) to be either split or reversed phase.

The 2617 is a somewhat similar ash-bodied Artist guitar model. The AR100 is a related model with a mahogany body and maple top.

The AR250 was offered only in 1980.
