The GARTS70 is an ART series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2010. It was made in China as part of the affordable GIO line.

The GARTS70 features a basswood body mated to a set-in maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez humbucking pickups with metal covers mounted in ivory pickup rings and a Full Tune III Tune-o-matic style bridge with tailpiece. Unlike most ART models which have an arched top, the GARTS70 has a beveled slab body.

The GARTS70 was discontinued after 2011 and replaced with the GARTS80.
