The GA15 is a GA series classical acoustic guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2015. It is made in China.

The GA15 features a classical body shape with a cedar top with fan bracing on mahogany back and sides with a gloss finish. The soundhole is round with a rosewood rosette. It has a mahogany neck with a 19-fret rosewood fingerboard. Components include an ivory plastic saddle in a rosewood twelve-hole classical bridge, a plastic nut and gold classical tuning machines.

For 2018 the back and sides were replaced with sapele, the rosewood fretboard was replaced with purpleheart or treated New Zealand pine, the bridge was replaced with purpleheart or ovangkol and the rosewood rosette was replaced with walnut. For 2019 the mahogany neck was replaced with okoume and the fretboard and bridge were standardized as purpleheart.

The GA15-3Q and the GA15-HF are ¾-sized and half-sized versions, respectively.
