The AVC9CE is an Artwood Vintage series acoustic/electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2017. It is made in China.

The AVC9CE features a grand concert body shape with a solid Thermo Aged mahogany top with Thermo Aged spruce X bracing and tortoiseshell binding on mahogany back and sides with an open pore finish. The soundhole is round with a black & white multi rosette and a red tortoise pickguard. It has a soft-V shaped mahogany neck with a 20-fret ovangkol fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a compensated bone saddle in an ovangkol bridge with black Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a bone nut, and chrome Ibanez open gear tuning machines. Electronics include an AEQ-AP2 preamp with onboard tuner, a Fishman Sonicore undersaddle pickup, a 9V battery, and balanced XLR and ¼" outputs.

For 2019 the AEQ-AP2 preamp was replaced with an AEQ-SP2. For 2019 the top was replaced with solid Thermo Aged okoume, the back and sides were replaced with okoume and the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh.

The AVC9 is a traditional acoustic version. The AVD9CE is a similar model with a dreadnought body shape and slightly longer scale neck.
