The Ibanez ART series is a series of electric guitar models produced by Hoshino Gakki. It is based on the classic Ibanez Artist model, but has 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 introduced previously in 2006.
Like the Ibanez ARC, the ART has a single cutaway body shape, although with a sharper cut, creating a less 'classic' look.
More than 15 different ART models have been issued since 2007, usually featuring a mahogany body with set-in mahogany neck, standard bridge and tailpiece setup and two humbucking pickups.
