The AE205JRB is a short-scale AE series acoustic/electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2020. It is produced in China.

The AE205JRB features a downsized body with a Venetian cutaway shape with a laminated 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. It has a satin-finished mahogany neck with a 607mm (23⅞") scale and a 20-fret ovangkol fingerboard with special mother of pearl position markers. Components include a compensated bone saddle in an ovangkol bridge with Ibanez Advantage pins, a bone nut, a tortoise pickguard and chrome open gear tuning machines. Electronics consist of a T-bar undersaddle pickup connected to an Ibanez Custom Electronics preamp mounted internally with a ¼" endpin output.

For 2019 the back and sides were changed from mahogany to okoume, the neck from mahogany to nyatoh and the fretboard and bridge from ovangkol to katalox.

The AE205JR is a similar model with different electronics.
