The RD727 was a four-string Roadbass series solid-body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in 1990. It was made in Japan. The square profile with hard edge and pointy headstock are roughly shaped after an introduced year earlier RG series.

The RD727 features 3 piece maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard and sharktooth inlays bolted-on to a Basswood body. Components include a P50 and J50 pickups and an Accu-cast BII bridge.

The RD606 and RD808LE are similar models with different pickup configurations. RD707 is basically the same model with dot inlays.
