The AR3000 is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2004. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Prestige line. It replaced the AR2000.

The AR3000 features a mahogany body with a AAA flamed maple top mated to a set-in maple neck with a 22-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl and abalone block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with gold cover mounted in rosewood pickup rings and with individual volume and tone controls, a Gibraltar II fixed bridge with a Quik Change tailpiece with cloud ornament, a bone nut, and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RAR1 is a related spot model with a burl mahogany top.
