The RG20062 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model offered by Ibanez in 2006. It is a limited edition Prestige model which was introduced at the 2006 Winter NAMM Show. The guitar has a distinctive jigsaw puzzle top with the puzzle pieces alternately of quilted and flamed maple which are vacuum formed to the body.[1]

The RG20062 features a mahogany body with the aforementioned jigsaw top bolted to a maple and walnut Wizard Prestige neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with small dot position markers. Components include dual DiMarzio/ Ibanez humbucking pickups, an Edge Pro double locking tremolo bridge, a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RG20062 was sold only in the US market. The RG20064 is a very similar model with more of an orange finish which was sold outside the USA. The RG20063 is another similar model with a maple and ovangkol top which was introduced alongside the RG20062 and offered worldwide. These models are referred to as the "Puzzle Guitars". Some claim that just 60 of each model were produced,[2] but production numbers may be 100 (or more) for each model.
