The DN500K is a Darkstone series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2010. It was made in China.

The DN500K features a sapele body with pearloid binding mated to a set-in sapele neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and abalone and acrylic checkboard block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez humbucking pickups, a Tune-o-matic style Tight Tune bridge and tailpiece, a small black pickguard and Ibanez tuning machines.

The DN500 is a nearly identical model with chrome hardware.

The DN500K was discontinued after 2011.
