The AS200 features a semi-hollow, double cutaway body design with a spruce top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with ivory 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 Gotoh bridge, a Gotoh tailpiece, a bone nut, a tortoise pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs, and Gotoh tuning machines.
For 2015 the pearl and abalone inlays were replaced with acrylic and abalone. For 2018 the back and sides were switched from flamed maple to figured anigre, but this was reverted back for flamed maple the following year. Also for 2018 the neck species was clarified as African mahogany and maple.
The AS200L is a left-handed version. The ASF180 is a similar model with a trapeze-style tailpiece. The AM200 is a related model with a smaller body. The AF200 is a related full-hollow guitar.
