The RG470FMR is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1994. It is referred to as the RG470FM-R in some instances.

The RG470FMR features an American basswood body with a flamed maple top bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Ibanez Infinity pickups with dual humbuckers flanking a single-coil.

The 1994 version had a Wizard neck profile and a Lo-TRS tremolo; it was discontinued after one year. The model was revived for 1996, this time with a Wizard II neck profile and a Lo-TRS II tremolo.

The RG470 is a similar model without the flamed maple top. The RG470FM is a similar model with a maple fretboard.

The RG470FMR was discontinued after 1997.
