2004 AXF74 PB 12 01
AXF74 Pale Blue Red copyright sprite

The AXF74 is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2003. It was made in China.

The AXF74 has a compact, arched top, flat back, full-hollow body which offers the warm tones of a full-hollow design without the bulk. It features an laminated maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearloid block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with chrome covers mounted in ivory pickup rings, an ART-1 Tune-o-matic style bridge with a chrome trapeze tailpiece, a plastic nut, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines with half moon buttons.

The AXD71 is a related model with a semi-hollow, single cutaway body.

This AXF74 was discontinued after 2004.
