The bodies of these Artcore United guitars were produced in China and then shipped to FujiGen in Japan where the necks were produced and the instruments were finished and assembled.
The AF195 features a full-sized, full-hollow body design with a laminated flamed maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides with a single Venetian cutaway mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl and abalone split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls, rosewood pickup rings, an ART-W bridge with a rosewood saddle and base, a VT100 tailpiece with wooden cover, a bone nut, a maple pickguard finished to match the body, Sure Grip II knobs, and Gotoh tuning machines with white buttons.
The AG195 is a similar model with a smaller body. The AS193 is a related semi-hollow, double-cutaway model. These were the only three models in the short-lived, Japanese-made Artcore United line.
The AF195 was discontinued after 2004. It is believed that 149 AF195s were produced.
