The AC50 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1990. It was made in South Korea by Yoojin as part of the Artstar series.

The AC50 features a full-size, full-hollow body with a single Venetian cutaway. It has an arched, maple top with ƒ holes and ivory binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearloid dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez standard humbucking pickups with chrome covers, black plastic pickup rings, a Tune-o-matic style bridge, a stop tailpiece, a plastic nut, speed knobs, a black pickguard, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AM80 is a related semi-hollow, double cutaway model.

The AC50 was discontinued after 1993. The model name was later used for a couple of acoustic guitar models.
