The RG421PB is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2016. It is produced in Indonesia.

The RG421PB features a poplar burl top on a mahogany body bolted to a maple Wizard III neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a fixed bridge and dual Ibanez Quantum humbucking pickups.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced with jatoba.[1] For 2019 the mahogany body was replaced with meranti. For 2020 the bridge was replaced with the F106.

The RG421CW is a version with a claro walnut top and the RG421RW is similar but with a rosewood top. The RG421 is a version without the exotic top. The RG7421PB is a seven-string version.
