The AM75 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1985. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Artstar series.

The AM75 features a compact, semi-hollow, double cutaway body design with an arched, laminated birch top with ƒ holes and ivory binding on birch back and sides with a maple center block mated to a set-in maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearloid dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez IBZ humbucking pickups with black covers mounted in black plastic pickup rings, a Pro Rock'r double locking tremolo bridge with locking nut, Sure Grip II knobs, and Smooth Tuner tuning machines.

The AM70 is a similar model with a fixed bridge. The AR350 is a related solid body model.

The AM75 was discontinued after 1985 and replaced with the AM75T which has an Edge tremolo and different finishes.
