The RG8820B is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2014. It was a spot model which never appeared in a catalog and was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the high end J Custom line. It has also been referred to as the JCRG20146 as well as the JCRG614.

The RG8820B features a 4mm flamed maple top with natural binding on an African mahogany body bolted to a titanium-reinforced wenge and bubinga neck with a 24-fret wenge fingerboard with Tree of Life vine inlays. Components include dual Bare Knuckle humbucking pickups with chrome covers, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut, Gotoh tuning machines and locking strap buttons.

The RG8820B was discontinued in 2016. A similar model with Fishman Fluence pickups, the RG8820, was introduced in 2019.
