The RGA42FM is an RGA series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It is produced in Indonesia.

The RGA42FM features a sculpted flamed maple top on a mahogany body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with offset dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Quantum passive humbucking pickups and a hard-tail bridge.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced with jatoba.

The RGA742FM is a similar seven-string model. The RGAR42MFMT is a related model with a tremolo, a reverse headstock and a maple fretboard.

An earlier model with the same name which was discontinued in 2012 had active pickups.
