The RG120 is a Roadstar II series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1986. It was made in Japan. The Roadstar II series would eventually become known as the RG series.

The RG120 is one of only a few RG models produced with a 22-fret neck. It has the rounded-edged body style which distinguishes it from the more sharp-edged modern RG body.

The RG120 features a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include dual pickguard-mounted Ibanez humbucking pickups with Duo Sound coil-tap functionality and a Powerocker tremolo bridge.

The 1986 RG120 has the original, swoopy, Roadstar headstock shape and the headstock is painted to match the body; it was made in Japan by Terada. For 1987, production moved to Peerless in Korea where it got a black headstock in the new, pointier RG-style shape.

The RG110 is a similar model with only a single pickup.

The RG120 was discontinued after 1987.
