The MRG12 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2010. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the high end J Custom line. It was a spot model which was sold exclusively by musical instrument retailer Kurosawa Gakki in Japan.

The MRG12 features a quilted maple top with flamed maple binding on a chambered African mahogany body bolted to a maple and walnut Super Wizard neck with a 24-fret dark rosewood fingerboard with flame maple binding and pearl dot position markers. Components include DiMarzio pickups mounted in a white pearloid pickguard with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, an Edge Zero double locking tremolo bridge with a removable ZPS3 tuning stabilizer and Gotoh tuning machines.

The MRG12 is a re-creation of the MRG4 from 2004 with some minor modifications.

The MRG12 was offered only in 2010.
