The AL100 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1989. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Artstar series.

The AL100 features a thin, semi-hollow, double cutaway body design in a shape traditionally associated with a solid body guitar. It has an arched, maple top with a single, stylized ƒ hole and black binding on maple back and sides with a maple center block mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez pickups with a V1 humbucker at the bridge and an S1 single-coil at the neck with black covers mounted in black plastic pickup rings, a Tune-o-matic bridge with a Quik Change II tailpiece, a bone nut, Tek Grip knobs, and Gotoh tuning machines.

The AL100 was produced for only one year.
