The PGM30 is a PGM series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1995. It is a signature model of American guitarist Paul Gilbert. In 1995 it was produced in both by Cort in Korea and by FujiGen in Japan. After 1995 production was moved exclusively to Japan.

The PGM30 is a more affordable version of the PGM100 and PGM300 which features a simpler tremolo and Ibanez pickups. Other features include a basswood body, a Wizard neck with reversed headstock and Paul Gilbert's signature painted F-holes.

A similar but simpler and more affordable model was introduced in 2002 as the PGM3. The PGM30 was discontinued after 2003.
