The RC220 is a solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It is part of the retro-inspired Roadcore series and was produced in Indonesia.

The RC220 features a mahogany body with dual binding bolted to a gloss finished maple neck with 22-fret fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Core Tone humbucking pickups and a fixed bridge.

In mid-2017 a new fretboard material, treated New Zealand pine, replaced rosewood.[1] For 2018 the bridge was changed to the F106.

The RC220 was discontinued after 2018 along with the rest of the Roadcore lineup.
