The DT520FM 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 packaged with a gig bag as the DT520FMGB.

The DT520FM features a flamed maple top with cream binding on a mahogany body 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 DT520 is a similar model which lacks the flamed maple top. The DT1GFM was a similar limited edition model with coil-tap functionality and gold hardware which was offered exclusively by American music retailers Guitar Center and Musician's Friend.

The DT520FM was discontinued after 2016.
