The RG140 is a Roadstar series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1988. This RG140 was made in Korea by Peerless. It replaced a previous model with the same name.

This RG140 is one of only a small number of RG models with humbucker/single/single pickup configuration. It's also one of only a few RG models produced with a 22-fret neck.

The RG140 features a basswood body bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 22-fret fingerboard with dot inlays. Components included Ibanez pickups with a humbucker at the bridge and single coil pickups in the middle and neck positions and a synchronized tremolo bridge. It has a coil-tap switch on the tone control to allow the humbucker to produce single coil-like tones.

The RG340 is a similar model with a double locking tremolo.

This RG140 was produced only in 1988.
