The SS401F is an Artstar Solid Top series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2017. It was made in China.

The SS401F features a full-hollow body design with a solid spruce top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides with a single Florentine cutaway mated to a set-in maple and walnut neck with a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with cream binding and no position markers. Components include a single, floating Ibanez Magic Touch Mini humbucking pickup at the neck with gold cover, an ART-W bridge with wooden saddle and base, a trapeze tailpiece with custom rosewood cover, a bone nut, a tortoise pickguard, rosewood knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The SS300 is a similar model with a pair of non-floating humbuckers.

The SS401F was discontinued in 2018.
