The DT520 is a Destroyer series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2013. It was produced in China as part of the X series. It was also offered in a package with a gig bag as the DT520GB.

The DT520 features a mahogany body with cream binding mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and split block position markers. Components include dual DiMarzio humbucking pickups with individual volume controls, a fixed bridge and tailpiece and gold Sure Grip III knobs.

The DT520FM is a similar model with a flamed maple top.

The DT520 was discontinued after 2016.
