The RG760 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1988 as part of the Roadstar series. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The RG760 features a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and sharktooth position markers. Components include DiMarzio IBZ/USA pickups with a humbucker at the bridge and single-coils in the middle and neck positions and a double locking tremolo bridge.

During its production run, a couple changes were made to the RG760. For 1990, new finishes with color-matched headstocks were introduced and the volume potentiometer was relocated slightly further from the bridge. For 1992 models (the final year of x60 model guitars) the Edge tremolo was replaced by the new Lo-Pro Edge and the pickups were direct mounted without pickup rings.

For the Japanese market, a model with a special paisley graphic finish was made, known as the RG760 BK-P. In catalogs this model is also shown with the somewhat different Cutaway Heel neck joint. A similar finish was available for the RG770.

The RG760 was discontinued after 1992 along with the RG560 which has the same pickup configuration. Very few RG models with an HSS pickup configuration have been offered since.
