The S5400 is an S series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1996. It is made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the high end J Custom series. It was among the first J Custom models offered and the first S series J Custom.

The S5400 features a solid lacewood body with a burl mahogany top bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard. The top is ringed with abalone purfling and cream binding which runs all the way up the neck/fingerboard and around the headstock. The fingerboard also has special S "hurricane" position markers. Components include DiMarzio pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

The S3040 is a similar model with a sapele body.

Although this model was never detailed in a catalog, it was shown on the cover of the European and USA catalogs in 1997. It was also one of the most expensive production models Ibanez had produced to date.
