The RG3420 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2008. It was a spot model which was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line. It was sold only in Russia and is known as the "Russian Gun".

The RG3420 features a flamed maple top on a mahogany body bolted to a maple and walnut Wizard neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and sharktooth position markers. Components include an Edge Zero double locking tremolo bridge with a removable ZPS tuning stabilizer, Seymour Duncan JB and Jazz humbucking pickups, Gotoh tuning machines, a single volume (no tone control) with push-pull coil-split functionality and a 3-way toggle pickup selector.

The RG3520Z is a related regular production model with dot fretboard inlays and other cosmetic and component differences.

The RG3420 was produced in very limited numbers of perhaps as few as 15 and was offered only in 2008.
