The MA3HH 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 MA3HH features neck-thru-the-body construction with mahogany body wings and a maple top attached to a maple Wizard neck with a 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl & abalone block position markers. As the model name implies it has a dual humbucker pickup configuration with a DiMarzio Double Whammy mounted in a pickup ring at the bridge and a PAF Pro at the neck. Components include an Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The MA3HSH is a similar model which adds a middle pickup.

The MA3HH was offered only in 1990. The MA1FM & MA1QM followed in 1991.
