The AF75L is a left-handed Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2008. It was produced sporadically for several years, originally in China and eventually in Indonesia.

The AF75L 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, a black pickguard, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2011 the fret size was changed from large to medium and the speed knobs were replaced with Sure Grip III knobs. For 2014 the pickups were replaced with Ibanez Classic Elite humbuckers and the pearl block fretboard inlays were replaced with acrylic.

The AF75 is a right-handed version.

The AF75L was discontinued after 2017.
