The PGA1000 is an AE series acoustic/electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1998. It is a signature model for American guitarist Paul Gilbert. It was the first signature acoustic guitar offered by Ibanez. Overall numbers are unknown but it is believed that production was quite limited.

The PGA1000 features a jumbo-shaped body with a Venetian cutaway with flamed maple top, back and sides with a low gloss finish. The soundhole is round with an abalone rosette. It has a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and split block position markers. Components include a rosewood bridge with Paul Gilbert signature f-hole inlays and an ivory plastic saddle, an ivory pickguard with a printed signature, an ivory plastic nut and chrome tuning machines with pearloid buttons. The headstock features an inlay representation of a signed Paul Gilbert plectrum. Electronics consist of a Fishman Matrix pickup connected to a Fishman Prefix plus preamp with a 9V battery and ¼" endpin output.

The PGA1000 was discontinued after 1999.
