The RG20051 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model offered by Ibanez for 2005. It was produced in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The most striking aspect of the RG20051 is the black and white marbled swirl paint job. These guitars are basically RG1570s which were finished by the same artist who also hand-swirled the Japanese "MKR" UV77 MC Universe guitars for Steve Vai. The pickup covers were also swirled. The finish on each guitar is unique.

The RG20051 features a basswood body bolted to a maple and walnut Wizard Prestige neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with small pearl dot position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, an Edge Pro double locking tremolo bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

The guitars were hand-assembled by Team J-Craft members, and shipped to buyers in standard black, hardshell plastic Ibanez Prestige cases with their metal "Team J-Craft" logo plates and red plush interiors. Included were the usual Ibanez Prestige guitar owner's manual and a standard tremolo bar.

The RG20051 was discontinued after just one year of production. Just fifty examples were produced with twelve allocated for the U.S. market.
