The EX140 is an EX series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1989. It was made in Korea. This version was sold only in the United States.

This EX140 features a basswood body mated to a one-piece maple neck with a traditional neck joint with a metal plate. It has a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. The pickups are an Ibanez EX humbuckers at the bridge and EX single coils in the middle and neck positions. Other components include a synchronized tremolo bridge.
The EX140L is a left-handed version. The EX170 is a similar model with a humbucking pickup in the neck position. The EX120 is a related model with dual humbucking pickups. A version with an agathis body was offered in Japan.
