The ARZ200FM is an ARZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2016.

The ARZ200FM features an arched flamed maple top with binding on a single-cutaway mahogany body mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a smooth heel with a 24-fret fingerboard with binding and parallelogram inlays. Components include a Tune-O-Matic style fixed bridge and tailpiece and dual Ibanez Classic Elite humbucking pickups.

The rosewood fretboard was replaced with treated New Zealand pine in mid-2017.[1] For 2018 the fretboard material was changed to jatoba.

The ARZ200 is a similar model which lacks the exotic flamed maple top.

The ARZ200FM was discontinued after 2018 along with the entire ARZ series.
