The AG75 is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2002. It was originally produced in China, but since 2016 production has moved to Indonesia.
The AG75 features a mid-sized, 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 bridge on a wooden base, a trapeze tailpiece, a plastic nut, a black pickguard, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.
Several changes have been made in the AG75's life cycle. For 2008 the VT50 tailpiece was replaced with the VT60. 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. For 2020 the fretboard was again changed, this time to walnut, and the bridge was replaced with the new Gibraltar Performer.
The AG75G is a similar model with gold hardware. The AF75 is a related model with a slightly larger body.
