The RG670 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 1993. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The RG670 features a light ash body bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 24-fret Bolivian rosewood fingerboard with dot position makers. Components include Ibanez pickups with a pair of V7 & V8 humbuckers flanking an S1 single-coil, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

For 1996 the fretboard was changed to rosewood and the pickups were changed to Ibanez Quantums.

The RG670MH is a similar model with a mahogany body. The RG680 is a similar model with a basswood body and sharktooth fretboard inlays.

The RG670 was available only in Japan and was discontinued after 1997.
