The ARZ6D is an ARZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Prestige line. The ARZ6D was offered in limited numbers (perhaps as few as eight examples) in Japan.

Features of the ARZ6D include a single cutaway archtop mahogany body with a maple top with multi-layer white binding mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a smooth heel with a 24-fret bound ebony fingerboard with no inlays. Components include dual Seymour Duncan IBZ humbucking pickups with individual volume controls, a fixed bridge and tailpiece, and Gotoh locking tuners.

The ARZ6UCS is a similar Prestige Uppercut model with stainless steel frets and Bare Knuckle pickups.

The ARZ6D was available only in 2017.
