The AF151F is an Artstar series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2014. It was made in China.

The AF151F features a full-hollow body design with a spruce top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides with a single Venetian cutaway mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with cream binding and pearl and abalone split block position markers. Components include a single, floating Ibanez Classic Elite mini humbucking pickups with gold cover, an ebony bridge with a compensated ebony saddle and a trapeze tailpiece, a bone nut, a bakelite pickguard with flamed maple veneer, Sure Grip III knobs, and Gotoh tuning machines.

For 2015 the fretboard inlays were changed to acrylic and abalone.

The AF151 is a similar model with a flamed maple top and non-floating pickup.

The AF151F was discontinued after 2016.
