The RG1521 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2003. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The RG1521 features a basswood body bolted to a Wizard neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez humbucking pickups, a Gotoh GTC101 fixed bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RG1521 was discontinued after 2004. It reappeared in 2008 with a few changes, among them a new five piece neck and different fretboard inlays.

The RG1521 was sold only in Japan and was discontinued again after 2008.
