The AFC125 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It is part of the Contemporary Archtop series. It was initially made in China, but production was moved to Indonesia for 2019.

The AFC125 features a thick, single cutaway, full-hollow body design with a laminated spruce top with ƒ holes and cream binding and maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and mother of pearl offset block position markers. Components include dual, floating Ibanez Magic Touch-Mini humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a floating ebony bridge with compensated ebony saddle and a trapeze tailpiece with a wooden cover, a plastic nut, a black pickguard, rosewood bell knobs and Ibanez tuning machines with black buttons.

For 2019 the wood species used for the back and sides was changed from maple to linden and the mahogany and maple neck was changed to nyatoh and maple.

The AFC155 and AFC95 are similar models with different wood species and some other minor specification differences.

The AFC125 was discontinued after 2019.
