The ASV73 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2019. It is made in Indonesia as part of the Artcore Vintage series.

The ASV73 features a semi-hollow body, double cutaway design with a laminated linden top with ƒ holes and cream multi-binding on linden back and sides mated to a set-in nyatoh neck with a 22-fret laurel fingerboard with cream 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 2020 the fretboard was replaced with walnut.

The AFV75 is a related full-hollow guitar.
