The AEG10II is an AEG series acoustic/ electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2013. It is produced in China and replaced the similar AEG10E.

The AEG10II features a thinner grand concert shaped body with a soft Venetian cutaway. The top is laminated spruce with ivory binding on mahogany back and sides with a high gloss finish. The round soundhole has an abalone rosette. It has a satin-finish mahogany neck with a 25" scale, 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with small white dot position markers. Components include a plastic saddle in a rosewood bridge, Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a plastic nut, and chrome Ibanez die-cast tuning machines with half moon buttons. Electronics consist of a Fishman Sonicore pickup connected to an Ibanez AEQ-SP1 preamp with onboard tuner powered by a 9V battery and ¼" stereo output jack.

For 2019 the top, back and sides were changed from mahogany to sapele; the rosewood fretboard and bridge were replaced with laurel, walnut or balsamo wood; and the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh. For 2020 the model was discontinued outside of Japan and only the walnut fretboard was continued.

The AEG10LII is a left-handed version. The AEG10NII is a similar model with a slotted headstock and nylon strings. The AEG12II is a related model with a mahogany or sapele top and different fretboard inlays.
