The AEWC4012FM is a twelve string AEW series acoustic/ electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2018. It is produced in China.

The AEWC4012FM features a grand concert body with a soft Florentine cutaway and an arched back. The top is laminated flamed maple with abalone purfling on flamed maple back and sides with a high gloss finish. The round soundhole has an abalone rosette. It has a mahogany neck with a 25" scale, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with special dot position markers. Components include a plastic saddle in a special top-loading rosewood bridge which eliminates the need for bridge pins, a plastic nut, and chrome Ibanez die-cast tuning machines.

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.

For 2019 the neck was changed from mahogany to nyatoh and the fretboard and bridge were changed from rosewood to laurel.
