The DT450 is a Destroyer series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1984.

The DT450 features an Explorer-style basswood body with a flame maple top and contrasting binding mated to a set-in maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid triangle markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez V5 humbucking pickups mounted in metal pickup rings, a Pro Rock'r double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut, Sure Grip II knobs and Smooth Tuner II machine heads. The binding for the black and cherry sunburst finishes is ivory; the red and white finishes have black binding.

The DT355 is a related model with an X-shaped body and without the flame maple top.

The DT450 was discontinued after 1985.
