The JCRG2011Z is a J Custom RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2011 in the United States. Previously, J Custom series models were sparsely available outside Japan and almost never in the USA. It was revealed at the 2011 Winter NAMM show that these will be produced exclusively for the US market at a rate of twelve per month.

The JCRG2011Z is very similar to the RG8570Z and while it has different color designations, some finishes might be similar to those of the contemporary J Custom lineup. Features include a mahogany body with flamed maple top and binding, maple bound rosewood fingerboards with vine inlay, DiMarzio pickups and an Edge Zero tremolo bridge.

Included with the JCRG2011Z was be a J Custom hardshell case, a certificate of authenticity and an Ibanez history book.
