The AW54CE is an Artwood series acoustic/electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2014. The AW54CE is made in China.

The AW54CE features a dreadnought body shape with a Venetian cutaway 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 red tortoise pickguard and chrome tuning machines. Electronics consist of a Fishman Sonicore pickup connected to an Ibanez AEQ210TF preamp with onboard tuner powered by a 9V battery and a ¼" output.

For 2016 the preamp was replaced with the Ibanez AEQ-SP2 and a balanced XLR output was added. For 2018 the rosewood fretboard and bridge were replaced with ovangkol. For 2019 the mahogany top, back and sides were replaced with okoume, the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh, the pickup was replaced with an Ibanez T-bar undersaddle pickup and the preamp was replaced with an Ibanez AEQ-TP2.

The AW54LCE is a left-handed version. The AW54 is a similar non-electric model without the cutaway. The AW5412CE is a similar twelve string model.
