The ASV10A is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2016. It was made in China as part of the Artcore Vintage series.

The ASV10A features a semi-hollow body, double cutaway design with a laminated maple top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with black binding and aged acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Classic Elite humbucking pickups with antique chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge and tailpiece, a plastic nut, a black pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines with half moon buttons. The finish and hardware are lightly reliced to suggest age.

For 2018 the fretboard was changed to treated New Zealand pine.

The ASV10AL is a left-handed version. The AMV10A is a similar version with a slightly smaller body. The AFV10A is a similar full-hollow body model.

The ASV10A was discontinued in 2018.
