The AF105BM is an Artcore Custom series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2007. It was made in China.

The AF105BM features a full-hollow body design with a burl mahogany top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on burl mahogany 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 rosewood cover, a plastic nut, a rosewood pickguard and truss rod cover, rosewood knobs, and Ibanez die-cast tuning machines with white half moon buttons.

Several similar models with different body materials were produced — the AF105 (flamed maple), AF105HK (Hawaiian koa), AF105SM (spalted maple). The AS103BM is a related semi-hollow model with a burl maple top.

The AF105BM was discontinued after 2009.
