The JTK2 is a Jet King series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2004.

The JTK2 was the second model in the Jet King series, which were an homage to the "pawnshop" copy guitars from the 1960s[1] (the type which Ibanez, among others, sold).

The JTK2 features a mahogany body with a split pickguard bolted to a maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard with offset triangle position markers. Components include dual Ibanez humbucking pickups and the Full Tune III fixed bridge. Controls include master volume and tone pots a 3-way pickup selector toggle and a pair of rocker switches for coil splitting the pickups. Similar switches were also used on the sixties "pawnshop" guitars, but were most often on-off switches for the pickups instead.

The body shape of the JTK2 is different than it's predecessor, the JTK1. It is an asymmetric shape with offset rounded horns which resembles the Fender offset guitars such as the Jazzmaster or the Jaguar. Going forward, this body shape was used for all the other models in the series.

For 2004 the JTK2 was produced in Korea, but production was moved to Indonesia starting in 2005.

The JTK2S is a similar model with P-90 sized single coil pickups.

The JTK2 was discontinued after 2007.
