The KIKO10BP s a solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It is a Signature guitar of Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro of the metal bands Angra and Megadeth. The KIKO10BP is made in Indonesia alongside the Premium line.

The KIKO10BP 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 more rounded profile than the traditional Ibanez Wizard profile with with titanium reinforcing rods and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. A special abalone inlay at the 12th fret is inspired by native Brazilian designs. The bridge is an Edge Zero II double locking tremolo.

For 2018 the fretboard was changed to panga panga; it reverted to rosewood for 2021.

The KIKO10BP is offered as a more affordable version of the Japanese made KIKO100. The KIKO10P is a nearly identical model with cosmo black hardware and a different finish which has been offered since 2014.
