The AF207 is a seven string hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 1997. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Artstar series. It was the first seven string jazz guitar created by Ibanez.

The AF207 features a full-sized, full-hollow, single Venetian cutaway body design with an arched spruce top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl and abalone split block position markers. Components include a DiMarzio Blaze II humbucking pickup with gold covers mounted near the neck, ivory pickup rings, an ebony bridge with ebony saddle, a custom trapeze tailpiece, a bone nut, a tortoise shell pickguard, Sure Grip II knobs, and Gotoh tuning machines with ivory buttons.

The AF200 is a related six string model with two humbuckers. The AFJ957 is another hollow-body seven string.

The AF207 was discontinued after 2003.
