The RG250 is a Roadstar II series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1987. The Roadstar II series would eventually become known as the RG series.

The RG250 is one of only a handful of RG models with humbucker/single/single pickup configuration. It's also one of only a few RG models produced with a 22-fret neck. It has the sharp-edged body style which distinguishes it from the older Roadstar body.

The RG250 features a basswood body with a flamed maple top and back bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret fingerboard with dot inlays. Components include Ibanez pickups with a humbucker at the bridge and single coil pickups in the middle and neck positions and a double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut.

The controls consist of volume and tone pots with a 5-way pickup selector and a Duo-Sound coil-tap toggle for the humbucker.

The RG240 is a similar model without the flamed maple top and back.

The RG250 was discontinued after just one year.
