The RG8520 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2016. It is made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the high-end J Custom line. It is a spot model sold exclusively through Japanese retailer Ikebe Gakki.

The RG8520 features include an African mahogany body with a 4mm thick bound flamed maple top bolted to a maple and walnut neck with a rosewood fingerboard bound with flame maple with a Tree of Life vine inlay. 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.

The RG8520 was discontinued after 2016. A similar model with the same name was reintroduced as a normal production model for 2018.
