The AE205A is an AE series acoustic/electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It is a spot model which was produced in China.

The AE205A features a Venetian cutaway body shape with a solid Sitka spruce top with scalloped cross-bracing and mahogany back (with Tone Projection cross bracing) and sides with a gloss finish. The soundhole is round with an abalone and maple rosette and an ivory pickguard. It has a satin-finished mahogany neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with special wooden vine inlays. Components include a compensated bone saddle in a rosewood bridge with ivory Ibanez Advantage pins, a bone nut, and chrome tuning machines. Electronics consist of a T-bar undersaddle pickup connected to an Ibanez Custom Electronics preamp mounted internally with a ¼" endpin output.

The AE205 and AE205J are similar models with a red tortoise pickguard.

The AE205A was discontinued after 2017.
