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.
