Components include dual Ibanez Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, ivory pickup rings, an ART-W bridge with wooden saddle and base, a VT60 trapeze tailpiece, a plastic nut, a maple pickguard with matching finish, rosewood bell knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AK105SM is a similar model with a spalted maple body. The AK95 is a related model with a spruce top on flamed maple back and sides and different pickups and tailpiece.

The AK100 was discontinued after 2010.
