The AFS75T is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2002. It was originally produced in China, but starting in 2017 production has moved to Indonesia with Chinese production halting in 2018.

The AFS75T 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 a single Venetian cutaway 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.

Several changes have been made in the AFS75T's life cycle. For 2010 the frets were changed from large to medium. For 2011 the speed knobs were replaced with Sure Grip III knobs. For 2015 the Artcore pickups were replaced with Classic Elite pickups and the pearl block inlays were switched to acrylic. For 2019 the maple body construction changed to linden, the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh, and the rosewood fretboard was replaced with laurel; in addition the Ibanez vibrato was replaced with a genuine Bigsby unit.

The AF75T is a related model with a thicker body.
