The AM75T is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1986. It was made in Japan by Terada as part of the Artstar series. It replaced the earlier AM75 which had a Pro Rock'r tremolo and different finish.

The AM75T 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, an Edge 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 AR350T is a related solid body model.

The AM75T was discontinued after 1987
