The AGS73BT is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2008. It was produced in China.

The AGS73BT features a slim, mid-sized, semi-hollow body design with an arched laminated maple top with ƒ holes and black 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 special pearloid bar position markers. The neck joint is at the 17th fret; combined with the deep cutaway this offers great upper fret access. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with cosmo black covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style roller bridge with a vintage vibrato tailpiece, a plastic nut, black pickup rings, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AGS73BT mates the single-cutaway body of the AG75 to the semi-hollow construction of the AS73. The AGS73B is a related model without the vibrato tailpiece.

The AGS73BT was discontinued after 2008.
