The EX1700 is an EX series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1992. It was made in Korea.

This EX1700 features a light American maple body with cream binding mated to a one-piece maple neck with a traditional neck joint with a metal plate. It has a 22-fret maple fingerboard with dot position markers. The pickups are Ibanez Powersound humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions flanking a single coil. Other components include a synchronized tremolo bridge.

The EX1700F was a version of this guitar that had a chambered body with an f-hole. The EX170 is a similar model without the body binding and with chrome hardware. The EX1500 is a similar model with a pickguard, no binding and a different bridge. The EX3700 is a related model with a flame maple top, a double locking tremolo bridge and different pickups.

This EX1700 was discontinued after 1993 along with the rest of the EX line.
