The AFV105 is an Artstar series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2019. It is made in Indonesia and sold only in Japan.

The AFV105 features a full-hollow body design with a laminated spruce top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides with a single Venetian cutaway mated to a set-in nyatoh and maple neck with a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with ivory binding and acrylic and abalone split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a tune-o-matic style bridge on a laurel base, a trapeze tailpiece, a bone nut, a spruce pickguard which matches the body, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2021 the fretboard material was changed to Macassar ebony and the bridge was swapped for the Gibraltar Artist.

The ASV103 is a related semi-hollow guitar.
