The SC3020 is an S Classic series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1998. It was produced in Japan by FujiGen as an early example of the upscale J Custom line.

The S Classic body is described as a marriage of the S series and the classic Radius and S Classic models feature fixed bridges.

The SC3020 features a mahogany body with a kokurodua (more commonly known as afrormosia or African teak) top with abalone purfling. This body is bolted to a 25.1" (638mm) scale maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with large abalone oval position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickup with gold covers, a Shortstop II fixed bridge, a bone nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The SC3120 is a similar model with a black walnut top.

The SC3020 was produced only in 1998. It's believed that no more than twelve examples were produced.
