The AFD75T is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2014. It was produced in China.

The AFD75T 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 double rounded cutaways mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-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 roller bridge on a wooden base with a vibrato tailpiece, a plastic nut, a tortoise shell pickguard, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

In late 2014 the Artcore pickups were replaced with Classic Elite pickups and the pearl block inlays were switched to acrylic.

The AFS75T is a similar model with a single-cutaway body.

The AFD75T was discontinued after 2015.
