The LGB30 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2013. It is a signature model for American jazz guitarist George Benson. It is a more affordable alternative to the LGB300. It was initially made in China, but production moved to Indonesia from 2019.
The LGB30 features a full-sized, single cutaway, full hollow body design with a spruce top with ƒ holes and multi-layer binding and flamed maple back and sides mated to a set-in three-piece mahogany and maple neck with a large headstock and a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and pearl/acrylic and abalone split block position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls; a Tune-o-matic style ART-1 bridge (a wooden bridge is also included) with special trapeze tailpiece; a bone nut; a quilted maple veneer pickguard and Sure Grip III knobs.
A natural finish option was added in late 2015. For 2019 the mahogany and maple neck was replaced with nyatoh and maple.
The LGB300 is a similar model with a slightly larger body and some different components which is made in Japan. In terms of size, the LGB30 fits between the LGB300 and the smaller GB10.
