The TXD71 is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2003. It was made in China.

The TXD71 has a semi-hollow body with an off-set, single-cutaway shape inspired by the Talman series solid body guitars. It features an arched, laminated maple top with a single ƒ hole and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and white dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with chrome covers mounted in ivory pickup rings, an ART-1 Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change tailpiece, a plastic nut, gold speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines with half moon buttons.

The TM71 is a similar predecessor which has individual volume and tone controls for each pickup along with black pickup rings, switch tip and knobs. The FTM60 is a related model with a flat top and a pickguard. The AXD71 is a related model with a different body shape.

This TXD71 was discontinued after 2005.
