The JC-FM1 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1998. It is made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale J Custom line. It was a spot model which never appeared in a catalog.

The JC-FM1 features a mahogany body with a 4mm thick AAAA flamed maple top with pearloid binding and a transparent black pickguard bolted to a maple neck with an ebony fingerboard with binding and pearl Tree of Life vine inlays. Components include cream colored DiMarzio pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

The JC-FM2 has a similar body by a maple fretboard with offset dot inlays, pearl gold hardware and no pickguard.

The JC-FM1 was produced only in 1998 in very small quantities.
