The DT400 is a Destroyer series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid-1995. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The DT400 features a basswood body with binding bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and pearl and abalone split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Quantum humbucking pickups with individual volume controls, a Tune-o-matic style Gibraltar II fixed bridge and tailpiece and gold Sure Grip II knobs.

The DT400 was offered for only a single year and was sold only in Japan. A reissue of this model was offered in 2002 as the DT420 with only minor differences to the neck and the available finishes.
