The AM103BM is an Artcore Custom series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid-2008. It was made in China.

The AM103BM features a smaller, double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with a laminated burl maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on burl maple back and sides mated to a set-in maple and walnut neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and abalone custom block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change tailpiece, a plastic nut, rosewood knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines with white buttons.

The AS103BM is a related model with a slightly larger body and a pickguard.

This AM103BM was discontinued after 2009.
