The AR300 is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1997. It is a reissue of the original AR300 from the late 1970s. This version was produced by Cort in South Korea.
The AR300 features a flame maple top on a double cutaway mahogany body mated to a set-in maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and pearl and abalone block position markers. Components include a Gibraltar II fixed bridge with tailpiece and dual Ibanez covered humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls and tri-sound switches which offer parallel, series and coil-split tone options.
Another version which was produced by Terada in Japan was produced simultaneously.
