The ART80 is an ART series solid body guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2009. It was produced in China.
The ART80 features a mahogany body mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with small pearloid dot position markers. Components include a Gibraltar III Tune-o-matic style bridge and a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups.
As a more affordable ART model it has all the basic specifications of the more expensive ART models, but lacks the carved top.
The Candy Apple finish was introduced as a limited edition for 2009 but returned in the regular lineup for 2010.
The ART80 was discontinued after 2010.
