The AFS75TD is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2003. It was produced in China.

The AFS75TD 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, an ivory pickguard and pickup rings, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2008 the inlays were changed from pearl block to a special abalone pattern.

The AFS75T is a nearly identical model with black pickup rings and pickguard.

The AFS75TD was discontinued after 2008.
