The RC520 is a solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It is part of the retro-inspired Roadcore series. It was made in Indonesia.

The RC520 features a mahogany body with front and rear binding bolted to a gloss finished maple neck with 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. Components include dual Ibanez Core Tone humbucking pickups with coil-split switch, a Tune-O-Matic style fixed bridge with through-body string routing and a TUSQ nut.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced with jatoba.

The RC520 was discontinued after 2018 along with the rest of the Roadcore lineup.
