The SA160QM is an SA series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2001. It was made in South Korea.

The SA160QM features a quilted maple top on a mahogany body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include an SAT30 synchronized tremolo bridge and Ibanez Axis pickups with a humbucker at the bridge and single-coils in the neck and middle positions.

The SA160 is a similar model without the quilted maple top. The SA160QML is a left-handed sibling model.

The SA160QM was discontinued after 2005. A new model with the same name was introduced in 2016.
