The FRM250 is a Fireman model solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2014. It was designed with American guitarist Paul Gilbert as part of his signature series.

The FRM250 was introduced at the 2014 Winter NAMM Show as a limited edition in honor of Gilbert's 25th year as an Ibanez endorser. Ibanez also referred to the model in some materials as the FRM25.

The FRM250 features a mahogany body with a bound flamed maple top and a mahogany and maple set-in neck with a 22-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. Components include a fixed bridge and tailpiece, Gotoh tuners, Graph Tech Black TUSQ man-made ivory nut and DiMarzio pickups in an HSH configuration. The tone control is active only in the 3, 4, 5 pickup positions.

Each example includes a certificate of authenticity signed by Gilbert and comes with a custom hard-shell case.
