The AF95PV is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2010. It was produced in China.

The AF95PV features an inlaid pearl vine design across the top which continues only the pickguard. It has a full-hollow body design with a laminated flamed sycamore top with ƒ holes, ivory multi-binding on flamed sycamore 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 abalone block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge on a wooden base, a decorative tailpiece, a plastic nut, a flamed sycamore pickguard, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2010 the flamed sycamore body and pickguard were replaced with flamed maple. For 2011 Sure Grip III knobs replaced the speed knobs. For 2013 Super 58 pickups replaced the Artcore humbuckers, the tailpiece was changed and the pearloid tuner buttons were replaced with gold.

The AF95 is a similar model without the decorative inlaid top. The AS93PV is a semi-hollow model with a similar aesthetic.

The AF95PV was offered only in 2010.
