The RG1802 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1998. It is part of the Japanese handcrafted J Custom line.

The RG1802 features a mahogany body with a flamed maple top and white binding bolted to a maple Wizard Special neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and offset abalone dot position markers. Components include dual DiMarzio humbucking pickups, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RG1702 is a similar model which lacks the fretboard binding. The RG1822 is also similar but with a quilted maple top, alder body and a different neck pickup. The KRG1802 is a nearly identical spot model with a different finish.

The RG1802 was produced only in 1998.
