The AF105HK is an Artcore Custom series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2009. It was made in China.

The AF105HK features a full-hollow body design with an Hawaiian koa top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on Hawaiian koa 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 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), the AF105BM (burl mahogany), and the AF105SM (spalted maple). The AS103HK is a related semi-hollow model.

The AF105HK was discontinued after 2011.
