The AMV100DG is an Artstar Vintage series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2016. It was made in China.

The AMV100DG features a semi-hollow, double cutaway body design with a sapele top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on sapele back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with cream binding and pearl/acrylic and abalone split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls and a Tri-sound switch for the neck, a Tune-o-matic style bridge and tailpiece, a bone nut, a pickguard painted to match the top, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines. It is extensively reliced to evoke a sense of age.

The AMV100FMD is a similar model with a flamed maple body. The ASV100DG is a similar model with a slightly larger body. The AM153 is a related model with a figured bubinga top and without the synthetic aging.

The AMV100DG was discontinued after 2017.
