The RC1720S is a Roadcore series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It was produced in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Prestige line. There was also a version sold as the RC1720SPR; it is unclear if there were actually any differences in the two versions.

The RC1720S features an alder body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a fixed bridge, dual Ibanez soapbar-style single coil pickups, a bone nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RC1720M is a similar model with a maple fingerboard and different pickups.

The RC1720S was discontinued after 2017.
