The RG7CTTL is an RG series solid body electric guitar model offered by Ibanez for 1993. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as a spot model which was sold only in Japan.

The RG7CTTL features a 7mm thick curly maple top on a mahogany body bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a matching headstock and a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with JEM style Tree of Life inlays. Components include DiMarzio-made IBZ/USA pickups with F4 & F2 humbuckers flanking a C2 noiseless, stacked single-coil, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RG770QM is a related model with a quilted maple top and dot fretboard position markers.

This is believed to be the only RG model outside of the JEM and J.Custom lines with the Tree of Life fretboard inlays besides the RG2820CT. It's also the first known non-JEM model with the vine inlays. The vine pattern of the RG7CTTL matches the JEM design, unlike the later RG models.

The RG7CTTL was produced only in 1993.
