The Ibanez RG750 is an RG series electric guitar model, introduced in 1987 as part of the Roadstar series. It is similar to the RG550 introduced a year earlier, but features DiMarzio made IBZ/USA pickups, a bound rosewood fingerboard and sharktooth inlays (also known as Himalaya inlays in Japan).

During its production run, several changes were made to the RG750. In 1990, a new neck pickup and finishes with color-matched headstocks were introduced. In 1991 the mid pickup was changed as well. Finally, 1992 models got the Lo Pro Edge tremolo.

Paul Gilbert has used and still uses an orange one, modded with varying pickups, fixed bridge and dinosaur stickers.

The RG750 was discontinued after 1992. In 1994 a similar looking model was introduced as the RG550LTD.
