The AM93QM is an Artcore Expressionist series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2018. It is made in Indonesia.

The AM93QM features a semi-hollow, double cutaway body design with a 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 ebony fingerboard with ivory binding and acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 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, a tortoise shell pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2019 the mahogany and maple neck was changed to nyatoh and maple. For 2020 the bridge was changed to the new Gibraltar Performer.

The AM93ME is a similar model constructed of Macassar ebony.
