The AFJ85 is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2012. It was made in China.

The AFJ85 features a thick, full-hollow body design with a laminated spruce top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides with a single rounded Venetian cutaway mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with cream binding and pearl block position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, an ART-W bridge with rosewood saddle and base, a trapeze tailpiece, a plastic nut, a bakelite pickguard with spruce veneer, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AFJ81 is a similar model with a single pickup. The AKJ85 is a related model with a flamed maple top and a pointed Florentine cutaway.

The AFJ85 was discontinued after just a single year in production. It was replaced by the similar AFJ95.
