The AF85TDG is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2012. It was made in China.

The AF85TDG 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 and maple 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, a flamed maple pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez diecast tuning machines with white half moon buttons.

The AF95 is a similar model without the vibrato bridge. The AF75TDG is a related model with a maple body and 1-piece neck.

The AF85TDG was discontinued after 2012. The similar AF95TDG was introduced for 2013.
