The JCRG20194 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2019. It was crafted in Japan by Sugi as a limited production model in the high-end J Custom line.

The JCRG20194 features a 4mm thick selected poplar burl top on an alder body bolted to a wenge and purpleheart neck asymmetric Super Wizard neck with an ebony fingerboard with 24 nickel silver super jumbo frets with hemispherical fret end treatment and abalone and pearl Tree of Life vine position markers. The headstock has a matching poplar burl veneer. Components include DiMarzio pickups with Air Norton and The Tone Zone humbuckers flanking a True Velvet single-coil, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge, recessed Easy Access control knobs, Gotoh tuning machines and Gotoh Free-Lock II strap pins.

The JCRG20191 is a similar model with a poplar burl top on an African mahogany body and gold hardware. The JCRG20193 is a similar model with a quilted maple top on a swamp ash body, a maple fretboard and gold hardware. The JCRG20192 is a related model with flamed maple top on an African mahogany body, a wenge fretboard, a dual humbucker pickup configuration and chrome hardware.
