The AM73D is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2008. It was produced in China.

The AM73D features a smaller, double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with an arched laminated maple top with ƒ holes on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls, ivory plastic pickup rings, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change tailpiece, a plastic nut, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AM73B is a similar model with black pickup rings. The AS73 is a related model with a slightly larger body.

The AM73D was discontinued after 2009.
