The MA2HSH is an American Master series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1990. The American Master line features guitars that are completely handmade in the United States.[1]

The MA2HSH features neck-thru-the-body construction with American basswood body wings attached to a maple Wizard neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with oval position markers. As the model name implies it has an HSH pickup configuration with DiMarzio humbuckers mounted in pickup rings at the bridge and neck flanking a single-coil. Components include an Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The MA3HSH is a related model with a maple top and block fretboard inlays.

The MA2HSH was offered only in 1990. The MA1FM & MA1QM followed in 1991.
