The RG-USA 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 RG-USA features a painted representation of the flag of the United States of America. Three different designs were painted and it is believed that each design is a one-off, meaning there were three total RG-USA guitars produced. These versions have been unofficially referred to as RG-USA1, RG-USA2 and RG-USA3, although they were never designated as such by Hoshino/Ibanez. The guitars have a thick matte/satin finish over the airbrushed flag design and a matching headstock.
The bodies of the RG-USA guitars are believed to be basswood bolted to a maple Ultra neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with offset abalone dots at the 12th fret. Components include chrome DiMarzio Evolution pickups mounted in pickup rings with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil (these are the same pickups as in the JEM10th), a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines and Free-lock strap locks.
