The AS200L is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1980. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The AS200L features a semi-hollow, double cutaway body design with a flamed maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides with a hard rock maple center block mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl and abalone split block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 or Super 70 humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls and a Tri-sound switch for the neck, ivory pickup rings, a Tune-o-matic style ST bridge, a Quik Change tailpiece, a bone nut, a tortoise shell pickguard, Sure Grip knobs, and VelveTune tuning machines with ivory buttons.

The AS200 is a right-handed version.

This version of the AS200L was discontinued after 1982.
