The AM80 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1990. It was made in South Korea by Yoojin as part of the Artstar series.

The AM80 features a compact, semi-hollow, double cutaway body design with an arched, maple top with a single ƒ hole and ivory binding on natoh back and sides with a maple center block mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearloid dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez standard humbucking pickups with chrome covers, black plastic pickup rings, a Tune-o-matic style bridge, a stop tailpiece, a plastic nut, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AM50 is a similar model with maple back and sides, a second ƒ hole, two volume and tone control, and a pickguard. The AC50 is a related full-sized, full-hollow, single cutaway model.

The AM80 was discontinued after 1993.
