The RG2540MZ is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2017. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Prestige line. It is a spot model which was offered exclusively in Japan and produced in relatively small quantities.

The RG2540MZ features an alder body bolted to a maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret maple fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include DiMarzio IBZ pickups with a humbucker at the bridge and single-coils in the neck and middle positions, an Edge Zero double locking tremolo bridge with removable ZPS tuning stabilizer and Gotoh tuning machines.

The HSS pickup configuration is relatively uncommon among RG series models.

The RG2560MZEX is a similar model with an ash body and different pickups.

The RG2540MZ was discontinued after 2017.
