The JCRG-21A is an RG series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2001. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the high end J Custom line.

The JCRG-21A features neck-through construction with mahogany body wings with a quilted maple top attached to a maple and bubinga neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with a special diamond with wings (or two birds kissing?) inlay at the twelfth fret. Components include a pair of DiMarzio PAF Pro humbucking pickups, a Roland GK synth Divided Pickup, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines. It has both standard ¼" and Roland 13-pin outputs.

The JCRG-21B is a model with similar specs but with a chambered bubinga body with spruce top.

The JCRG-21A was discontinued after just one year in production.
