APEX30 Metallic Gray Matte Red copyright sprite

The APEX30 is a seven-string solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2020. It is a signature model of American guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer, known for his work with the nu metal band Korn, and a part of Munky's APEX series. It is produced in Indonesia and replaced the APEX20.

Unlike previous Apex models which were based on the RG-bodied Universe series guitar which Shaffer used in the early days of Korn, the APEX30 uses an RGA series body.

The APEX30 has a maple top on a nyatoh body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with no inlays. Components include a pair of direct-mounted DiMarzio Blaze humbucking pickups, an Evertune bridge and Gotoh machine heads.
