The RG440L is a left-handed Roadstar II series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1986. The Roadstar II series would eventually become known as the RG series.

The RG440L is one of only a few Roadstar/RG models produced with a 22-fret neck. It is also remarkable as an RG model with a humbucker/ single/ single pickup configuration. It has the rounded-edge body style of the older Roadstar II.

The RG440L features a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include pickguard-mounted Ibanez pickups with a humbucker at the bridge and single coils in the neck and middle positions and an Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut.

The RG440L has the original swoopy Roadstar II headstock shape and the headstock is painted to match the body.

The RG440 is a right-handed version.

The RG440L was discontinued after 1987.
