The AF200 is an Artstar series hollow body electric guitar model re-introduced by Ibanez in 2014. It is made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The AF200 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/acrylic and abalone split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, an ebony bridge with a compensated ebony saddle and a trapeze tailpiece, a bone nut, a tortoise pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs, and Gotoh tuning machines.

For 2015 the pearl and abalone inlays were replaced with acrylic and abalone. For 2018 the back and sides were switched from flamed maple to figured anigre, but this was reverted back for flamed maple the following year. Also for 2018 the neck species was clarified as African mahogany and maple. For 2020 the back and sides material was again changed to figured anigre.

The AF180 is a similar model with a maple body. The AS200 is a related semi-hollow guitar.
