The PC15 is a Performance series acoustic guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2013. It has been made in both China and Indonesia. A version including a lightweight hardshell case was sold as the PC15WC.
The PC15 features a grand concert body with a laminated spruce top on mahogany back and sides. The round soundhole has a black and white acrylic rosette and a black pickguard. The mahogany neck has a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with small white dot position markers.

For 2018 the 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 and the back and sides and neck were changed to nyatoh. For 2021 the body length was very slightly increased.
