The PF15 is a Performance series acoustic guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2013. It is made in both China and Indonesia with some difference noted below. It was also packaged with a lightweight hardshell case and sold as the PF15WC.

The PF15 features a dreadnought body with a laminated spruce top on mahogany back and sides with a high gloss finish. 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. Components include a compensated plastic saddle in a rosewood bridge with ivory Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a plastic nut, and chrome Ibanez open gear tuning machines.

For 2018 the back and sides were replaced with sapele and the rosewood fretboard and bridge were replaced with laurel or nandu wood (depending on market). For 2019 the neck was changed from mahogany to nyatoh and the back and sides and neck were changed to okoume or nyatoh (depending on market). For 2021 the body dimensions were very slightly increased.

The PF15L is a left-handed version. The PF1512 is a twelve string version. The PF15C is a similar model with a cutaway. The PF15ECE is a similar acoustic/ electric model with a cutaway. The PC15 and PN15 are related models with, respectively, grand concert and parlor bodies. The PF12MH is a related model with a mahogany or sapele top.
