The ART series is a line of solid body electric guitars produced by Hoshino Gakki and sold under the Ibanez label. The ART models are based on the classic Ibanez Artist model, but have a single cutaway body shape. It was introduced in 2007 as the third subseries of afforable alternatives for the Ibanez Artist, after the ARC and ARX series which had been introduced the previous year.
Like the Ibanez ARC, the ART has a single cutaway body shape, although with a sharper cut, creating a less "classic" look. To date, all ART models have a dual humbucker pickup configuration and a fixed bridge.
More than 15 different ART models have been offered since 2007, usually featuring a mahogany body with set-in mahogany neck, standard bridge and tailpiece setup and two humbucking pickups.
