The AS83 features a full-sized, double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with a laminated maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with ivory binding and acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 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, a tortoise shell pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.
For 2019 the mahogany and maple neck was replaced with nyatoh and maple. For 2020 the body material was changed to linden and the bridge was changed to the new Gibraltar Performer.
The AS93FM and AS93ZW are similar models constructed of flamed maple and zebrawood, respectively.
The AS83 was discontinued after 2020.
