The RG750 is a solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1987. It was originally part of the Roadstar series which evolved into the RG series.

It is similar to the RG550, but features DiMarzio made IBZ/USA pickups, a bound rosewood fingerboard and sharktooth inlays.

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 middle 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.
