The RG450DX is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2013.

Notable features include a Wizard III neck and a rosewood fretboard with sharktooth inlay and binding. Other features include Ibanez pickups and a double-locking tremolo bridge.

From 2013, the Edge Zero II does not come with the usual ZPS3 anymore on non-Prestige models. It is replaced by a conventional 3 springs/claw setup. The RG450DX was significantly changed for 2015 with two new finishes and numerous component changes.

A left-handed model is also available, the RG450DXBL. Similar models are the RG450DXB (white finish with the same pearloid pickguard), the RG470DXB (no pickguard) and the RG450M (maple fretboard).

The RG450DXB is a similar model with black hardware and the RG450EX is similar except it has white dot fingerboard inlays.
