The RG140L is a left-handed Roadstar series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1986. It was made in Korea by Peerless. The Roadstar series would eventually become known as the RG series.

The RG140L is one of only a few RG models produced with a 22-fret neck. It is also among a small number of RG guitars with a humbucker/ single/ single pickup configuration. It has the rounded-edged body style which distinguishes it from the more sharp-edged modern RG body.

The RG140L features a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include pickguard-mounted Ibanez pickups with a humbucker at the bridge and single-coils at the neck and middle positions and a standard synchronized tremolo bridge.

The RG140L has the original swoopy Roadstar headstock shape and the headstock is painted to match the body.

The RG140 is a right-handed version.

The RG140L was discontinued after 1986.
