The AK95 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2007. It was made in China as part of the Artcore series.
The AK95 features a thick, full-hollow body design with a laminated spruce top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides with a single pointed Florentine cutaway mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with cream binding and aged pearl block position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, an ART-W bridge with wooden saddle and base, a VT100DX tailpiece, a plastic nut, a spruce pickguard with matching finish, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.
For 2012 the knobs were changed to Sure Grip III.
The AK95L is a left-handed version. The AK100 is a related model with a maple body and different pickups and tailpiece. The AK80 is a related model with sycamore back and sides and a different tailpiece.
The AK95 was discontinued after 2012. The jazz-focused AKJ95 was introduced for 2013.
