The RG450DXBL is a left-handed RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It replaced another model with the same name, but with significant changes. It was made in Indonesia.

This RG450DXBL features a mahogany body bolted to a one-piece maple neck with a 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with sharktooth position markers. Components include Ibanez Quantum pickups mounted in a white pearloid pickguard with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a standard double locking tremolo bridge, a locking nut, and die-cast tuning machines.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced with jatoba. For 2019 the mahogany body was replaced with meranti.

The RG450DXB is a right-handed version.

The RG450DXBL was discontinued after 2019.
