The AF75D is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2003. It was produced in China.

The AF75D features a full-hollow body design with an arched laminated maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides with a single Venetian cutaway mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge on a wooden base, a trapeze tailpiece, a plastic nut, an ivory pickguard and pickup rings, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2005 the frets were changed from small to large, although they're also listed as medium in some catalogs. For 2008 the VT50 tailpiece was replaced with the VT60. For 2011 the speed knobs were replaced with Sure Grip III knobs.

The AF75 is a similar model with black pickguard and pickup rings.

The AF75D was discontinued after 2013.
