The RGA427Z is a seven-string RGA series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2010. It is part of the made-in-Japan Prestige line.

The RGA420Z features an arched-top mahogany body with a flamed maple top bolted to a maple and wenge neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include dual covered Ibanez active humbucking pickups with an Active EQ control, an Edge Zero 7 double locking tremolo bridge, a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RGA427Z was among the first RGA models equipped with a tremolo, along its six-string sibling, the RGA420Z and the RGA220Z.

The RGA427Z was discontinued in mid-2013.
