Like most Musician models, the MC350 features neck through body construction. It has body wings made up of an ash core sandwiched between two layers of mahogany on a five-piece maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 88 humbucking pickups mounted in integrated plastic covers with individual volume and tone controls and a Tri-sound switch for the neck pickup, a Tune-o-matic style Gibraltar bridge with a Gibraltar tailpiece w/ scalloped "cloud" ornament, rubberized Sure Grip control knobs and Smooth Tuner machine heads.
For 1982, the pickups were replaced with Super 58s mounted in traditional plastic pickup rings, a 7-piece neck was adopted, a second Tri-Sound switch was added, and the tuning machines were changed to VelveTune.
The MC350L is a left-handed version. The MC150 is a related model without the sandwich body wing construction and other minor changes. The MC550 is a related model with a koa top and back and active electronics.
It's believed that as few as 84 MC350s were produced in the Natural finish. Production numbers for the other finishes are unknown.
The MC350 was discontinued after 1982 along with the entire Musician series.
