The KIKO100 is a solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2014. It is a Signature guitar of Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro of the metal bands Angra and Megadeth. The KIKO100 was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The KIKO100 is based on the S series although it has a thicker body with a flat back and special relief on the lower horn in the rear. The body is alder with a flamed maple top. The output is a tilt-positioned jack on the side of the guitar rather than on the face like a typical S series guitar.

It has custom DiMarzio pickups with a pair of humbuckers with coil-split functionality flanking a single-coil. The custom neck has a rounder profile than the traditional Ibanez Wizard profile with 24 frets, the last four of which are scalloped. The bridge is an Edge double locking tremolo with a locking nut. The rosewood fingerboard has a special abalone inlay on the 12th fret which is inspired by native Brazilian designs.

The KIKO100 was the first signature guitar produced for Loureiro, introduced alongside a mass market version, the Indonesian made KIKO10P. It has been followed by several less expensive versions including the Indonesian made KIKO10BP and the Chinese made KIKOSP and KIKOSP2.

The KIKO100 was discontinued after 2017 and replaced with the KIKO200. The KIKO100 was reintroduced in the summer of 2022 at the NAMM.
