The KIKOSP2 is a solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2016. It is a Signature guitar of Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro of the metal bands Angra and Megadeth.

The KIKOSP2 is a mass-market version of Loureiro's other signature guitars, the Prestige-level KIKO100 and the Premium-level KIKO10P.

The KIKOSP2 is based on the S series although it has a thicker, poplar body with a special deep cut lower horn and an art grain flamed top. It has Ibanez Infinity R pickups in an HSH configuration. The maple neck has a 24-fret rosewood fretboard with offset dot position markers and a special inlay at the 12th fret. The bridge is a standard double locking tremolo design with a locking nut.

In mid-2017 a new fretboard material, treated New Zealand pine, replaced rosewood.[1]

The KIKOSP2 replaced the KIKOSP which is similar but has a synchronized tremolo.
