The AF105 is an Artcore Custom series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2005. It was made in China.

The AF105 features a full-hollow body design with a flamed maple top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides with a single Venetian cutaway mated to a set-in maple and walnut neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with cream binding and pearl and abalone custom block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge on a wooden base and a tailpiece with custom wood cover, a plastic nut, a flamed maple pickguard, rosewood knobs, and Ibanez die-cast tuning machines with white half moon buttons.

Several similar models with different body materials were produced — the AF105BM (burl mahogany), the AF105HK (Hawaiian koa), and the AF105SM (spalted maple). The AF105F is a related model with a single floating pickup at the neck. The AF125 is a related model with quilted maple body and Super 58 pickups. The AF100 is a similar model with a maple body.

The AF105 was discontinued after 2012. The somewhat similar AF155 was introduced for 2013.
