The ART500E is an ART series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2010. While it originally came out as a special model in 2010, it became part of the regular lineup for the US market in 2011. It was produced in China.

The ART500E features a maple top on mahogany body mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid and abalone split block position markers. Components include a Tune-o-matic style Gibraltar III fixed bridge with a Quick Change tailpiece and a pair of active EMG humbucking pickups with independent volume controls.

The ART500E was discontinued after 2011.
