The ARZ800 is an ARZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2011. It was produced in China.
The ARZ series was introduced for 2011. They are similar to the ART series models, but feature a 24-fret neck and features such as active pickups that make them suitable for heavy music.
The ARZ800 features an arched quilted maple top with binding on a mahogany body mated to a set-in maple and mahogany neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and no inlays. Components include a pair of active EMG humbucking pickups mounted in metal pickup rings and powered by an onboard 9V battery and a Tune-o-matic style Tight Tune bridge and tailpiece.
The ARZ700 is a similar model without the quilted maple top.
The ARZ800 was discontinued after 2012.
