The RG2550E is an RG series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2005. It was made in Japan as part of the Prestige line. It replaced the RG2550EX with differences including a new neck construction and smaller fretboard inlays.

The RG2550E features a basswood body bolted to a maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with small dot position markers. Components include DiMarzio IBZ pickups mounted in a brown mirror pickguard with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, an Edge Pro double locking tremolo bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

For 2007 the RG2550E was visually updated with fingerboard binding and wedge sharktooth inlays.

It was replaced for 2008 by the RG2550Z which featured the new Edge Zero tremolo.
