The AR305 is an Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1982. It was made in Japan.

The AR305 features a double-cutaway mahogany body with a bound dish carved burl mahogany top mated to a set-in three-piece maple neck with a 22-fret bound ebony fingerboard with pearl and abalone block position markers. Components include dual Ibanez humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls and a fixed bridge and tailpiece. Each pickup has a Tri-sound switch with three pickup settings: humbucker, single-coil or reverse phase.

The AR300 is a similar model with a flame maple top.

The AR305 was discontinued after 1987.
