The RG2820CT is an RG series solid body electric guitar model offered by Ibanez in 2003. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of a Limited Edition series of the Prestige line.

The RG2820CT features a curly maple top with binding on a mahogany body bolted to a maple Ultra Prestige neck with a matching headstock and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with Tree of Life inlays. Components include a pair of DiMarzio/IBZ humbucking pickups, an Edge Pro double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

This is believed to be the only RG model outside of the JEM and J.Custom lines with the Tree of Life fretboard inlays besides the earlier RG7CTTL.

The RG2820CT was produced only in 2003.
