For a list of Xiphos models, see Category:Xiphos models.

The Ibanez Xiphos (XP) series is a series of electric guitars produced by Hoshino Gakki, first introduced in 2007. Although the Xiphos does resemble other 'Destroyer' and 'X' shaped guitars, it is considered a new model and is the first completely X shaped guitar since the 1984 Axstar models. The Xiphos is part of the Ibanez X series, Ibanez' collection of radically shaped guitars since 1983.

Most Xiphos models fit in the X series "700 series" mold of guitars with a neck-through-body construction, mahogany body wings, DiMarzio D Activator pickups and a Gibraltar Custom bridge (or Edge III tremolo).

The tremolo-equipped XPT700 was the first XP. A hard-tailed version was introduced a year later as the XPT700FX, as well as the seven-string XPT707FX. The first more affordable model was introduced in 2009 as the XP300FX.

The XPT700XH introduced in 2009 has the most unique feature on a XP production model to date, namely a 27-fret neck. An even more unique model is the 2010 Showcase limited production XP, the XPT1400TW a 6- and 7-string double neck guitar.

The XPIR20E introduced in 2015 is now part of the Iron Label series, featuring an ebony fretboard and EMG pickups.
