The UCGR14 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1991. It was produced in the United States as part of the Graphic Design series of the USA Custom line. The Graphic Design models feature bodies which are handpainted by "some of the most skilled and imaginative artists in America".[1]

The UCGR14 features a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include two DiMarzio humbucking pickups (a FRED at the bridge and a PAF Pro at the neck) flanking a DiMarzio-made IBZ/USA C3 single coil pickup, an Edge double locking tremolo bridge, a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The image on this guitar, entitled "The Angels Depart", features a desoloate gray landscape under a gray sky with three hooded figures and a giant winged creature in a small boat. It was handpainted and signed by Dan Lawrence.

This represents only the "stock" configuration, as customers could customize the guitar to their own desires. The customer could select the pickup configuration and pickups, the fretboard material and inlays, the headstock, the hardware color and more.

The UCGR14 was discontinued after 1991 although a similar Custom Graphics series was offered in 1992. The 92UCGR4 has a similar image.
