The AS93FML is a left-handed Artcore Expressionist series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2018. It is made in Indonesia.

The AS93FML features a full-sized, double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with a laminated flamed maple top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany and maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with cream 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 bridge was swapped to the new Gibraltar Performer. For 2021 the fretboard material was changed to Macassar ebony.

The AS93FM is a right-handed version. The AG95QAL is a related full-hollow body model.
