The TC630 is a Talman series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1996. The Talman series is a retro-styled guitar reminiscent of the Fender Telecaster.

Two versions of the TC630 were produced. This version replaced the earlier version in the European and USA markets in 1996. The other TC630, which had a resoncast body, continued to be produced for sale in Japan as well as Asia and South America.

This version of the TC630 features a light ash body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include three Sky lipstick-style single coil pickups and a floating synchronized tremolo bridge.

The TC630 was discontinued after 1998 along with the entire Talman series of this era.
