The ARZ700 is an ARZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2011. It was produced in China.

The ARZ series is new for 2011. They are similar to the ART series models, but feature a 24-fret neck and more features suitable for heavy music.

The ARZ700 features a mahogany body mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and no inlays. Components include a pair of active EMG humbucking pickups mounted in black plastic pickup rings and powered by an onboard 9V battery and a Tune-o-matic style Tight Tune bridge and tailpiece.

For 2013 several changes were made including a new neck with a longer scale and new control knobs.

The ARZ800 is a similar model with a quilted maple top.

The ARZ700 was discontinued after 2013.
