The AR250 is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1999.

The AR250 has all basic Artist features but unlike most models which proceeded it in the series, it was produced outside Japan. It features a mahogany body with a flamed maple top with binding mated to a set-in maple neck with a 22-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a fixed bridge and tailpiece and dual Ibanez Axis humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls.

The AR250 supplanted the AR200 which is similar except it has a plain maple top. This version was offered from 1999 until 2004 when it was replaced by the AR300. The AR250 returned in 2009.
