The S270 is an S series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1997. It was made in South Korea and was the most affordable S series model at the time.

The S270 features a mahogany body bolted to a maple Wizard II neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. Components include Ibanez Powersound pickups with a pair of humbuckers mounted in pickup rings flanking a single-coil and an SLT101 single locking tremolo bridge. The SLT101 differs from a typical Floyd Rose style tremolo in that the strings are not locked at the saddles, but rather simply retained by the ball ends.

The S270 was sold only in Europe and was discontinued after 2000.
