The AR300L is a left-handed Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1981. It was made in Japan.

The AR300 features a double-cutaway mahogany body with a bound dish carved flame maple top mated to a set-in three-piece maple neck with a 22-fret bound ebony fingerboard with pearl and abalone block position markers. Components include dual Ibanez humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls and a fixed bridge and tailpiece. Each pickup has a Tri-sound switch with three pickup settings: humbucker, single-coil or reverse phase.

The AR300 is a left-handed version.

The AR300L appeared only in the 1981 catalog, though it may have been available beyond that year.
