The AR330 is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1982. It was made in Japan by FujiGen and was a spot model which never appeared in a catalog.
The AR330 features a bound dish carved birdseye maple top on a double-cutaway mahogany body mated to a set-in three-piece maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and pearl and abalone split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style Gibraltar bridge with embedded sustain block and tailpiece and VelveTune machine heads with pearloid buttons. Each pickup has a Tri-sound switch with three pickup settings: humbucker, single-coil or reverse phase.
The AR300 is a similar regular production model with a flamed maple top. Limited edition finishes of the AR300 in Black and Gold were produced simultaneously with the AR330. It was stated that only 80 examples were produced, but it's unclear whether that meant 80 of each or a total of 80 of all three variants combined.
