The AF120 is an Artstar series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1995. It was made in South Korea.

The AF120 features a full-sized, full-hollow, single Venetian cutaway body design with a maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in maple neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl and abalone split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 50 humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, black pickup rings, a rosewood bridge with rosewood saddle, a metal trapeze tailpiece, a plastic nut, a black pickguard, gold plastic top hat knobs, and Ibanez die-cast tuning machines with white buttons.

Several changes were introduced for 1997 including Super 58 pickups, a new tailpiece and speed knobs were introduced.

The AS120 is a related model with a smaller, semi-hollow, double cutaway body.

The AS120 was discontinued after 2003.
