The ASF180 is an Artstar series hollow body electric guitar model re-introduced by Ibanez in 2019. It is made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The ASF180 is a sort of hybrid of the semi-hollow AS200 and the full-hollow AF200. It features a semi-hollow, double cutaway body design with a maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in African mahogany neck with a 22-fret Macassar ebony fingerboard with ivory binding and "smoky" acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls and a Tri-sound switch for the neck, a Tune-o-matic style Gotoh bridge, a trapeze tailpiece, a bone nut, a black pickguard with ivory multi-binding, black Sure Grip III knobs, and Gotoh tuning machines.
