The PC12MH is a Performance series acoustic guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2014. It is made in both China and Indonesia. The Chinese version is sold in the US market and the Indonesian version is sold elsewhere; minor differences between the two versions are noted in the specifications below.
The PC12MH features a grand concert body with a laminated mahogany top on mahogany back and sides with an open pore finish. The round soundhole has a tortoiseshell rosette and a red tortoise pickguard. The mahogany neck has a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with small white dot position markers. Components include a compensated plastic saddle in a rosewood bridge with black Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a plastic nut, and chrome Ibanez open gear tuning machines.
For 2018 the top, back and sides were replaced with African mahogany or sapele (depending on the market) and the rosewood fretboard and bridge were replaced with laurel, ormosia or nandu wood (depending on market). For 2019 the neck was changed from mahogany to nyatoh and the top, back and sides were changed to okoume, neck was changed to nyatoh and the fretboard and bridge were standardized as laurel across all markets. For 2021 the body dimensions were very slightly increased.
