The FRM200 is a Fireman series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2018. It was made in China and replaced the FRM150. The Fireman series is designed with guitarist Paul Gilbert as a signature model.

The FRM200 features a mahogany body bolted to a mahogany and maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and white dot position markers. Components include a Tight Tune hard-tail bridge and tailpiece, a TUSQ nut and a pair of custom DiMarzio PG-13 mini humbucking pickups.

For 2019 okoume replaced mahogany in the body and neck.

The FRM200 is sold in Japan packaged with a gig bag as the FRM200GB.

The FRM200 was discontinued after 2020. It was replaced in the lineup by the FRM300.
