The RG1027PBF is a seven string RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It was made in Indonesia as part of the mid-tier Premium line.

The RG1027PBF features an American basswood body with a 7mm thick poplar burl top bolted to an eleven piece wenge, bubinga, maple and purpleheart Wizard neck with a 24 stainless steel fret wenge fingerboard with offset pearloid dot position markers and luminescent side dots. The pickups are dual PAF 7 humbuckers from DiMarzio. Other components include a Tight End R-7 fixed bridge and locking Gotoh tuning machines.

For 2018 the neck was replaced with a new eleven piece panga panga, maple, walnut and purpleheart construction and the wenge fretboard was replaced with panga panga.

The RG1070PBZ is a visually similar tremolo-equipped six-string model.

The RG1027PBF was discontinued after 2019.
