The AF75G is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It was originally produced in both China and Indonesia, but Chinese production was halted after 2018.

The AF75G features a full-hollow body design with a 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 acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Classic Elite humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge on a wooden base, a trapeze tailpiece, a plastic nut, a tortoise shell pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2019 the maple body construction changed to linden, the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh, and the rosewood fretboard was replaced with laurel. For 2020 the fretboard material was changed again, this time to walnut and the bridge was replaced with the new Gibraltar Performer.

The AF75 is a similar model with chrome hardware.
