The AM74 is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2011. It was made in China.

The AM74 features a smaller, double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with a laminated maple top with ƒ holes and ivory binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and white acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups with chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with a trapeze tailpiece, a plastic nut, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AM73B is a related model with different pickups and tailpiece and a black nut.

This AM74 was discontinued after 2012.
