The RG-ART1 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model offered by Ibanez in 1997. They were produced in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale J Custom line.

The most striking feature of the RG-ART1 is its multicolor geometric design. It has a basswood body with a 7mm thick flame maple top with natural binding bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 24-fret maple fingerboard with a special geometric mirror inlay at the 12th fret. Components include dual DiMarzio humbucking pickups, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines and Free-lock strap locks.

The RG-ART1 was produced only in 1997 in limited numbers (perhaps 30 or fewer examples).
