The RGA742FM is a seven string RGA series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It is produced in Indonesia.

The RGA742FM features a sculpted flamed maple veneer top with binding on a mahogany body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with offset dot position markers. Components include a pair of passive Ibanez Quantum humbucking pickups, a hard-tail bridge and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced with jatoba. For 2019 the mahogany body was replaced with meranti. For 2020 the bridge was replaced with the F107.

The RGA42FM is a similar six string model. The RGA7420FM is a similar model with a tremolo bridge.
