The ARZ200 is an ARZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2016.

The ARZ200 features a single-cutaway mahogany body with an arched maple top and cream binding mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a smooth heel and a 24-fret fingerboard with binding and parallelogram position markers. Components include a fixed bridge and tailpiece, dual Ibanez Classic Elite humbucking pickups with chrome covers and Sure Grip III knobs.

The rosewood fretboard was replaced with treated New Zealand pine in mid-2017.[1] For 2018 the fretboard was changed again, this time to jatoba and the maple top was eliminated.

The ARZ200FM is a similar model with a flamed maple top. The ARZ200EX is a model with different pickups.

The ARZ200 was available starting in August 2016.[2]
