The AM93 is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2011. It was initially made in China, but in 2017 production also took place in Indonesia. Starting in 2013 it moved into the new Artcore Expressionist series.
The AM93 features a medium-sized, double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with a laminated quilted maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on quilted maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change tailpiece, a plastic nut, Sure Grip III knobs, a black bakelite pickguard and Ibanez tuning machines.
In mid 2014 the pickups were changed from Super 58 Custom to Super 58.
The AM93L is a left-handed version. The AM93RW is a related model with a rosewood body. The AS93 is a related model with a slightly larger flamed maple body.
The AM93 was discontinued after 2017 and replaced with the similar AM93QM.
