The AEG1812II is a twelve string AEG series acoustic/ electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2015. It is produced in China.

The AEG1812II 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-SP2 preamp with onboard tuner powered by a 9V battery and balanced XLR and ¼" stereo output jacks.

In mid 2017 the rosewood fretboard and bridge were replaced with treated New Zealand pine. This was changed again for 2018 to purple heart for the US market; all markets have purpleheart fretboards and bridges for 2019. For 2019 the mahogany neck was also replaced with okoume.

The AEG18II is a six string version.
