The AS93C is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2008. It was made in China.

The AS93C features a full-sized, double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with a laminated cocobolo top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on cocobolo back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, ivory plastic pickup rings, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change tailpiece, a plastic nut, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AS93 is a similar model with a flamed maple or flamed sycamore body.

This AS93C was discontinued after 2008.
