The EX350 is an EX series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1988. It was manufactured in Korea by Cort.

The EX350 has a solid wood body bolted to a one-piece maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with triangle position markers. Components include pickguard-mounted Ibanez pickups with humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions flanking a single coil, a double locking tremolo bridge and a locking nut.

For the US market, the EX350's body is basswood. Several different species of wood were used for EX350s sold in Europe.

The EX350 featured a traditional neck joint with a metal plate through 1991. Starting in 1992 it has the sculpted All-access neck joint which does away with the metal plate. Also in 1992, the TRS-101 tremolo was replaced with a new lower-profile version.

In 1993 US-spec EX350s got a new 24-fret neck.

The EX370 is a similar model without the pickguard. The EX360 is a related model with a single coil pickup replacing the humbucker in the neck position and without the pickguard.

The EX350 was discontinued after 1993 along with the rest of the EX line.
