The AS200 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 mated to a set-in mahogany 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 with ivory buttons.
For 2015 the pearl and abalone inlays were replaced with acrylic and abalone. For 2018 the body material was changed 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. For 2020 the body material was again changed to figured anigre.
The AS200L is a left-handed version. The AS180 is a similar model with a maple body. The AM200 is a related model with a smaller body. The AF200 is a related full-hollow guitar.
The AS200 was discontinued after 2020 in favor of the new AS2000 which is similar but has a roasted maple laminated neck.
