The RG52 is a Roadstar series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1986. The Roadstar series would eventually become known as the RG series.
Despite the RG name, the RG52 has the rounded-edge body style and swoopy, rounded headstock of the older Roadstar body. It has a tone chamber routed out of the body beneath the pickguard.
The RG52 features a chambered basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez humbucking pickups with individual volume controls and Duo-Sound coil-split functionality and a Powerocker Special tremolo bridge.
