The AS93L is a left-handed Artcore Expressionist series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2016. It was made in China.

The AS93L features a full-sized, double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with a laminated flamed maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on flamed maple 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 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, Sure Grip III knobs, a black bakelite pickguard and Ibanez tuning machines.

The AS93 is a right-handed version.

The AS93L was discontinued in 2017.
