The DT50 is a Destroyer II series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1981. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The DT50 features a solid alder body bolted to a 3-ply birch neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. Components include a Gibraltar fixed bridge, Quik Change tailpiece, a pair Ibanez humbucking pickups with a covered Super 70 at the neck and an uncovered V2 with white bobbins at the bridge, Sure Grip knobs, and Smooth Tuner II machine heads. The output jack is mounted on the side of the guitar.

For 1982 the neck was changed to maple and the body was changed to birch and basswood.

The DT300 is a similar model with a set-in neck.

This DT50 was discontinued after 1982. The similar tremolo-equipped DT100 was introduced for 1983.
