The PC12MHE is a Performance series acoustic guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2016. It was made in China.

The PC12MHE features a grand concert body with a Venetian cutaway and 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 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with small white dot position markers.

For 2018 the mahogany back and sides were replaced with sapele and the rosewood fretboard and bridge were replaced with nandu wood. For 2019 the neck was changed from mahogany to nyatoh.
