The AEGB14E is an AEG series acoustic/ electric bass model introduced by Ibanez for 2015. It is produced in China.

The AEGB14E features a thin body with a soft Florentine cutaway. The top is laminated mahogany with herringbone purfling and black binding on mahogany back and sides. The round soundhole has an maple rosette and the back features a black center strip inlay. It has a mahogany neck with a 32" scale, 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a compensated plastic saddle in a rosewood bridge with black plastic bridge pins, a plastic nut, and chrome Ibanez die-cast tuning machines.

Electronics consist of an Ibanez under saddle pickup connected to an Ibanez AEQ-2T preamp with onboard tuner powered by a 9V battery and a ¼" stereo output.

For 2018 the top, back and sides were changed from mahogany to sapele. The neck was changed from a 3-piece mahogany and maple construction and the fretboard dots were changed to maple. For 2019 the neck was changed to nyatoh and maple and the rosewood fretboard and bridge were replaced with walnut.

The AEGB10E is a similar model with a spruce top.
