The AS2000 is an Artstar series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2021. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line. It replace the similar AS200 with the major difference being the new roasted maple laminated neck.

The AS2000 features a semi-hollow, double cutaway body design with a figured anigre top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on figured anigre back and sides mated to a set-in African mahogany and S-Tech roasted maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with ivory binding and 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.

The AM2000H is a related model with a smaller body. The AF2000 is a related full-hollow guitar.
