The RG4080 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1997. It was made in Japan as one of the first models in the Prestige line, after the RG3070 from the previous year and along with the RG3120 and RG3180. It was a spot model which never appeared in a catalog

The RG4080 features a mahogany body with a bound quilted maple top bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot position markers and a "Prestige" plaque at the 24th fret. Components include DiMarzio pickups with two humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RG3180 is a similar model with a flamed maple top and different pickups. The RG3270 is a similar model which was offered a few years later in Japan only.

The RG4080 was discontinued after just one year and it seems that only a small number were produced.
