The PF1512 is a twelve string Performance series acoustic guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2013. It is made in both China and Indonesia. From 2017 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 PF1512 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 black Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a plastic nut, a black pickguard, and chrome Ibanez 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).

The PF15 is a six string version. The PF1512ECE is a similar acoustic/ electric model with a cutaway.
