The AC340CE is an Artwood series acoustic/ electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2018. It is made in China.

The AC340CE features a cutaway grand concert body shape a solid mahogany top on mahogany back and sides with an open pore finish. The soundhole is round with a simple black and white acrylic rosette and a red tortoise pickguard. It has a satin finished mahogany neck with a 20-fret ovangkol fingerboard with white binding and small white dot position markers. Components include a compensated bone saddle in a Thermo Aged ovangkol bridge with black Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a bone nut, and chrome Ibanez die-cast tuning machines.

For 2019 the mahogany top, back and sides were replaced with okoume and the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh.

The AC340 is a similar traditional acoustic model without the cutaway. The AC240E is a related model with a non-Thermo Aged bridge, abalone rosette and Grover tuners and without a cutaway body.
