The AF75TDG is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2008. Initially production was in China, but in late 2016 additional production was added in Indonesia.
The AF75TDG 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 Artcore humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, an ART-2 roller bridge on a wooden base, a vintage-style vibrato tailpiece, a plastic nut, an ivory pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez diecast tuning machines with pearloid half moon buttons.
For 2011 the speed knobs were replaced with Sure Grip III knobs. For 2013 the ivory pickguard was replaced with a tortoiseshell pickguard and the pearloid tuning machine buttons were replaced with gold buttons. For 2015 the pickups were changed to Classic Elite humbuckers.
The AF75 is a similar model without the vibrato bridge. The AF85TDG is a related model with a flamed maple body and 3-piece neck.
The AF75TDG was discontinued after 2018.
