The RG30JCLTD is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the high-end J Custom line and was introduced as a limited edition model to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the introduction of the original RG550 in 1987.

The RG30JCLTD features a 4mm thick AAAAA quilted maple top and back on a mahogany body bolted to a titanium reinforced maple and walnut neck with Velvetouch finish and a selected rosewood fingerboard with 24 stainless steel frets and a pearl and abalone Tree of Life inlay. Components include DiMarzio pickups with two humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a Lo-Pro Edge tremolo bridge with a locking nut, Gotoh tuning machines and Gotoh locking strap pins.

The rear control cavity cover is embellished with a special 30th anniversary logo. In addition it has the cutaway heel neck joint with a metal plate from the original JEM models rather than the modern All Access joint.

While most J Custom models are available only in Japan, this model was offered worldwide. The RG30JCLTD was offered only in 2017.
