The AE510 is an AE series acoustic/electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2018. It was made in China and replaced the AE500.

The AE510 features a Venetian cutaway body shape with a solid Sitka spruce top bound in pau ferro with scalloped cross-bracing and solid pau ferro 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 20-fret pau ferro fingerboard with special mother of pearl position markers. Components include a compensated bone saddle in a pau ferro bridge with ebony pins with abalone dots, a bone nut, a tortoise pickguard and chrome Gotoh tuning machines.

Electronics consist of a T-bar undersaddle pickup connected to a ¼" endpin output with the only onboard control being a mute button. The included AGPD10 preamp unit is external to the guitar.

For 2019 the AE510 was replaced with the AE519 in all markets except the USA; the AE519 is similar but has an African mahogany neck and Macassar ebony fretboard and bridge. Additionally the mahogany neck was clarified to be nyatoh.

The AE900 is a model with similar specs which is made in Japan. The AE315 is a related model without the external preamp.

The AE510 was discontinued after 2019.
