Like the FGM100 it replaced, the FGM300 is based on the Ibanez S series and has flush mounted pickups and a deep-set neck and tremolo which allows an extra low string set-up. Changes include new pickups and the Green Metallic finish. Both GM (Green Metallic) and MG (Metallic Green) are used in the catalogs, but are supposedly the same.
The FGM300 features a mahogany body bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and sharktooth position markers. Components include DiMarzio pickups with a pair of traditional humbuckers flanking a single-coil sized rails humbucker, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.
The FGM300 was discontinued after 1996 in favor of the new FGM400.
