The AF75FM is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2017. It was made in Indonesia.

The AF75FM features a 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 neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Classic Elite humbucking pickups with chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge on a blackwood base, a trapeze tailpiece, a plastic nut, a tortoise pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2019 the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh and the rosewood fretboard was replaced with laurel.

The AF75G and AF75 are similar models constructed using different wood species.

The AF75FM was discontinued after 2019.
