The AE200 is a hollow body electro-acoustic guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1988. It was made in Japan by Terada as part of the Artstar series.
The AE200 features a semi-hollow, single cutaway body design with an arched, flamed maple top with slit soundholes and ivory multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides with a maple center block mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and small pearl dot position markers. Components include a single Ibanez Mini Humbucker pickup with gold cover mounted in an ivory plastic pickup ring, a custom bridge with integrated tailpiece and piezo pickups, a bone nut, Sure Grip II knobs, and Gotoh tuning machines.
The AE200 was discontinued after 1989.
