The SA260FM is an SA series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2018. It is produced in China.

The SA260FM features a flamed maple top on a mahogany body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret jatoba fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups with a Quantum humbucker at the bridge and Resolution single-coils in the middle and neck positions, an Ibanez T102 two-point synchronized tremolo bridge, a plastic nut, and Ibanez die-cast tuning machines.

For 2019 the mahogany body was replaced with okoume.

The SA460QM is a similar model with a quilted maple top and some abalone flourishes.
