The RG600 is a 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 RG600 has the rounded-edge body style and swoopy, rounded headstock of the older Roadstar II style. This model was used by and is associated with American jazz guitarist Stanley Jordan although it is not technically a signature model.

The RG600 features a basswood body with a flamed maple top bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Lo-Z active humbucking pickups with a 2-band equalizer and an Accu-Cast fixed bridge.

The RG530 is a related model with passive pickups and a tremolo bridge.

The RG600 was discontinued after just one year in production.
