The AR325QA is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2018. It is produced in China.
The AR325QA features an arched quilted ash top with ivory binding on a mahogany body mated to a set-in maple neck with a smooth heel and a 22-fret jatoba fingerboard with ivory binding and split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls wired to Tri-sound switches which allow a range of tone options, a Tune-o-matic style ART-1 fixed bridge with a Quik Change Classic tailpiece, Ibanez die-cast and gold Sure Grip III knobs.
For 2019 the mahogany body was replaced with okoume. For 2020 the bridge was replaced with the new Gibraltar Performer.
It replaced the AR325 which is a similar model with a figured bubinga top.
