The AC100 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1989. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Artstar series.

The AC100 features a thinline, semi-hollow, single cutaway body design with an arched, maple top with ƒ holes and black multi-binding on maple back and sides with a maple center block mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez humbucking pickups with black covers mounted in plastic pickup rings, a Tune-o-matic bridge with a Quik Change II tailpiece, a bone nut, Sure Grip II knobs, and Gotoh tuning machines.

The AC100 was produced for only one year.
