The LGB300 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2012. It is a signature model for American jazz guitarist George Benson. It is made in Japan by FujiGen.

The LGB300 features a full-sized, single cutaway, full hollow body design with a spruce top with ƒ holes and multi-layer binding and maple back and sides mated to a set-in three-piece maple neck with a large headstock and a 22-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 height-adjustable ebony bridge with special adjustable split trapeze tailpiece; a bone nut; quilted maple pickguard, Sure Grip III knobs and Gotoh tuning machines.

The LGB300 has a significantly larger body than Benson's long-running GB10 model. Other differences include the pickups and the pointed lower horn. The LGB30 is a less expensive version of the LGB300 which is made in China.
