The AG85 is an Artcore Expressionist series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2015. It was produced in China and sold exclusively in Japan.

The AG85 features a mid-sized, full-hollow body design with a laminated flamed sycamore top with ƒ holes and black & cream multi-binding on flamed sycamore 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 acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style Gibraltar Performer bridge on a laurel base, a trapeze tailpiece, an ivory plastic nut and pickup rings, an ivory pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AG85 was discontinued after just one year in production.
