The AS73G is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2006. It was produced in China.

The AS73G features a double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with an arched laminated maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and acrylic dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change tailpiece, a plastic nut, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AS73 is a similar model with chrome hardware.

This version of the AS73G was a spot model which never appeared in a catalog and was produced for only a few months in 2006.
