The RG8470F is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced in 2006. It was produced in Japan by FujiGen as part of the exclusive J Custom line.

The RG8470F features a flamed maple top on a mahogany body bolted to a maple and walnut Super Wizard neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with flamed maple binding and abalone Tree of Life vine inlays. Components include DiMarzio pickups with a pair of direct-mounted humbuckers flanking a single-coil, an Edge Pro double locking tremolo bridge, Gotoh tuning machines and recessed control knobs.

The RG8470A is a very similar model with a AAAAA flamed maple top, which was offered in limited numbers in 2006. The IRG8470F is a similar model with different finishes which was offered exclusively by retailer Ishibashi. The HRG2007 is a similar model with a lacquer finish which was an Ikebe Gakki exclusive.

With the introduction of the Edge Zero tremolo in 2008 the RG8470F was discontinued in favor of the RG8470Z.
