The AW54 is an Artwood series acoustic guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2014. The AW54 is made in China.

The AW54 features a dreadnought body shape with a solid mahogany top with X bracing and mahogany back and sides with an open pore finish. The soundhole is round with a simple black and white acrylic rosette. It has an open pore finished mahogany neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with small white dot position markers. Components include an ivory plastic saddle in a rosewood bridge with black Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a plastic nut, a tortoise pickguard and chrome tuning machines.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard and bridge were replaced with ovangkol. For 2019 the mahogany top, back and sides were replaced with okoume and the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh.

The AW54L is a left-handed version. The AW54CE is a similar acoustic/electric model with a cutaway body. The AW54MINI and AW54JR are slightly downsized short-scale versions.
