The AS80 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1983. It was made in Japan by FujiGen. It essentially replaced the similar AS100.
The AS80 features a semi-hollow, double cutaway body design with a laminated maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides with a hard rock maple center block mated to a set-in maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls, black pickup rings, a Tune-o-matic style Gibraltar II bridge, a Quik Change II tailpiece, a bone nut, a black pickguard, Sure Grip II knobs, and Smooth Tuner machine heads.
For 1985 the body material was changed from maple to birch.
The AS200 is a related model with a flamed maple body, mahogany neck, ebony fretboard with split block inlays, gold hardware and slightly different electronics.
This version of the AS80 was discontinued in 1987. The similar AS100 was introduced for 1989. The AS80 model name was revived in 1994.
