The RG8520 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2017. It is made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the high-end J Custom line.

The RG8520 features a 4mm thick flamed maple top with white binding on an African mahogany body bolted to a maple and wenge neck with a VelveTouch finish and a selected rosewood fingerboard with white binding and Tree of Life inlays. Components include a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge, dual DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbucking pickups with a mini-toggle coil split switch and Gotoh tuning machines.

A very similar guitar with the same name appeared in 2016; notable differences include the neck and control configuration.
