The MC300 is a Musician series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1996. It is a reissue of the original MC300 from the late 1970s. The reissue was part of the "80's Classic Legend" series which was offered in Japan in the mid-1990s.

The MC300 features neck-through body construction with double cutaway mahogany Strat-style Musician body wings with maple top and back attached to a maple and walnut neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with abalone dot position markers. Components include an original Gibraltar fixed bridge, original Quik Change decorative tailpiece and dual Ibanez Super 88 humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls and tri-sound switches which offer parallel, series and coil-split tone options.

The MC300 reissue was discontinued in 1998.
