The AFS78T is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2006. It was produced in China.

The AFS78T 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 and maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups without covers, individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style roller bridge on a wooden base with a vibrato tailpiece, a plastic nut, a black pickguard and pickup rings, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AFS77T is a very similar model with black hardware.

The AFS78T was discontinued after 2006.
