The FG100 features a full-sized, full-hollow, single Venetian cutaway body design with an arched, laminated maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple sides and arched back mated to a set-in maple neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with chrome covers and individual volume and tone controls, black plastic pickup rings, a rosewood bridge with rosewood saddle, a custom trapeze tailpiece, a bone nut, a tortoise shell pickguard, Sure Grip knobs, and Smooth Tuner machine heads.
For 1983 the knobs were replaced with the new Sure Grip II.
The FG100 was discontinued after 1987. The somewhat similar AF200 was released the following year.
