The RG657PB is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It is produced in Japan by Fujigen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The RG657PB features a poplar burl top on a mahogany body bolted to a maple and walnut Super Wizard HP neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include DiMarzio pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil which are mounted directly to the body, an Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

For 2018 the body wood was specified as African mahogany.

The RG657K is a similar model with a basswood body with a koa top. The RG657MSK is a related model with a mahogany body with a silky oak top and a maple fretboard.

The RG657PB was discontinued after 2018.
