The AS100 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1989. It was made in Japan by Terada as part of the Artstar series.

The AS100 features semi-hollow, double cutaway body design with an arched, maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple 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 pearl dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls, ivory plastic pickup rings, a Tune-o-matic style bridge, a Quik Change II tailpiece, a bone nut, a black pickguard, Sure Grip II knobs, and Gotoh tuning machines.

The AS200 is a related model with a flamed maple body, ebony fretboard with split block inlays, and different hardware.

The AS100 was discontinued in 1990.
