The PM200 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2013. It is a signature model for American jazz guitarist and composer Pat Metheny. It is made in Japan by FujiGen and replaced the PM120 as the Metheny's flagship model.

The PM200 features a full-sized, single cutaway, full hollow body design with a maple top with ƒ holes and multi-layer binding and maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and pearl/acrylic and abalone split block position markers. Components include a single Ibanez Silent 58 humbucking pickup with gold cover mounted at the neck, a Gotoh Tune-o-matic style bridge floating on a wood base with a custom tailpiece, a bone nut, Sure Grip knobs, a stereo output jack and Gotoh tuning machines.

For 2015 the pearl and abalone inlays were replaced with acrylic and abalone. For 2018 the wood species used for the neck was clarified as African mahogany.

The PM2 is a more affordable Chinese-made version.
