The TAM10 is an eight string solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2014. It is the mass market version of the TAM100, the signature model of American guitarist Tosin Abasi of the American progressive metal band Animals as Leaders.

The TAM10 features a basswood body bolted to a maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with offset white dot position markers. Components include DiMarzio Ionizer8 pickups mounted in a tortoise pickguard with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a Gibraltar Standard II fixed bridge.

The TAM10 is essentially a mass-market version of the TAM100. The TAM10 was discontinued after 2016. Abasi left Ibanez to launch his own guitar brand in 2017.
