The AR300 is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1990. It was made in Japan by Iida Gakki.

The AR300 features a double-cutaway mahogany body with a bound arched maple top mated to a set-in three-piece maple neck with a 22-fret bound ebony fingerboard with block position markers. Components include dual DiMarzio PAF Pro humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls and a fixed bridge and tailpiece. Each tone control has a push/pull switch to activate a coil-split of its pickup.

The AR200 is a similar model without the maple top and DiMarzio pickups and with a rosewood fretboard. The AR500 is a similar model with a flame maple top.

The AR300 was discontinued after 1992, but the model name resurfaced again in 1996.
