The AR2800 is a double neck Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1983. It was made in Japan by FujiGen and was a spot model that may have been available exclusively from Kurosawa Gakki in Japan.

The AR2800 has both a six string and twelve string neck. It features an arched maple top on a German carved double-cutaway body mated to a pair of set-in three-piece rock maple necks with 22-fret ebony fingerboards with binding and pearloid and abalone split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups for each neck mounted in cream pickup rings with individual volume and tone controls, a pair of Gibraltar II Tune-O-Matic style bridges and special stop tailpieces with integrated scalloped plates, rubberized Sure Grip control knobs, Smooth Tuner machine heads and individual outputs for each neck.

The 2670 (a.k.a. "Artwood Twin") and AR1200 (a.k.a. Artist Twin) are related Artist series double neck guitars.

The AR2800 was produced in very limited numbers only in 1983.
