The ASV103 is an Artstar series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2019. It is made in Indonesia and sold exclusively in Japan.

The ASV103 features a semi-hollow, double-cutaway body design with a laminated spruce top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on flamed maple back and sides mated to a set-in nyatoh 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 bone nut, a spruce pickguard which matches the body, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The ASV113 is a similar model with a flamed maple top. The AFV105 is a related full-hollow guitar.
