The FTM60 is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2003. It was made in China.

The FTM60 has a semi-hollow body with an off-set, single-cutaway shape inspired by the Talman series solid body guitars. It features an flat, laminated maple top with a single ƒ hole and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and white dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with chrome covers mounted in a white pearloid pickguard, an FXB50 fixed bridge, a plastic nut, gold speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines with half moon buttons.

The TXD71 is a related model with an arched top and no pickguard.

This FTM60 was discontinued after 2005.
