The AS63 is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2019. It is produced in Indonesia.

The AS63 was offered in bright colors as part of the new "Artcore Vibrante" line.

The AS63 features a double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with an arched laminated sapele top with ƒ holes and ivory binding on sapele back and sides mated to a set-in nyatoh neck with a 22-fret laurel fingerboard with ivory binding and acrylic dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Infinity R humbucking pickups, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with separate tailpiece, a plastic nut, a white pearloid pickguard, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2020 the fretboard was changed to walnut and the bridge was replaced with the new Gibraltar Performer.

The AS63T is a similar model with a vibrato tailpiece.
