The AK75D is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2005. It was made in China as part of the Artcore series.

The AK75D features a thick, full-hollow body design with a laminated maple top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on maple back and sides with a single pointed Florentine cutaway mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with cream binding and pearloid block position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls; an ART-W bridge with rosewood saddle and base; a VT50 chrome tailpiece; ivory plastic pickguard, nut and pickup rings; speed knobs; and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AK85 is a spruce top on sycamore back and sides.

The AK75D was discontinued in 2007.
