The AM78T is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in for 2006. It was produced in China, replacing the AM77T.

The AM78T features a compact, 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 and maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with acrylic and abalone block position markers. Components include a pair of uncovered Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls, black pickup rings, a roller bridge with a vintage vibrato tailpiece, a plastic nut, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AM73 is a related model without the vibrato tailpiece.
