The RC430 is a Roadcore series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It was made in China.

The RC430 features a retro design, including a traditional bolt-on neck with a plate joint and gloss-finished round-profile neck. It has a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a non-locking synchronized tremolo bridge and a set of three Ibanez single coil pickups mounted in a tortoise pickguard.

The RC430 is among only a handful of Ibanez models with a triple single coil pickup configuration. The RC430M is a similar model with a maple fretboard.

It was discontinued after 2015 along with much of the rest of the Roadcore line.
