The RGA8420 is an RGA series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2017. It is produced in Japan by FujiGen as part of the high end J Custom line. This is just the second RGA model in the J Custom line after the extremely limited production JCRGA1601.
The RGA8420 features a sculpted mahogany body with a 3mm thick flamed maple top with natural binding bolted to a titanium reinforced maple and walnut J Custom Wizard HP neck with a 24 fret selected rosewood fingerboard with flame maple binding and Tree of Life position inlays. Components include dual DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbucking pickups, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge, a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines. Controls consist of a master volume and tone, a 3-way toggle pickup selector and a mini-toggle switch to split both humbuckers.
The RGA8420 was available initially only in Japan, but distribution to Europe and other markets was added in 2018. A new Rhodonite Pink Flat finish was added exclusively for Japan in 2018.
