The EX170 is an EX series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1991. It was made in Korea. This version with the rosewood fretboard was offered only in European markets starting in 1992.

This EX170 features a plywood 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 Ibanez EX humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions flanking an EX single coil. Other components include a synchronized tremolo bridge.

The EX170L (rosewood fretboard) is a left-handed version. The EX120 (1991–1992, plywood body) is a similar model without the middle pickup. The EX140 is a related model with a single-coil pickup in the neck position and a rosewood fretboard. The EX170FM is another related model with an alder body with a flame maple top.

The EX170 (1992–1993, maple fretboard) is a related model that was sold in the US market. Multiple differences exist between the two models including the pickups and the type of wood used for the body and fretboard.

This EX170 was discontinued after 1993 along with the rest of the EX line.
