RGCTM1 White Mist Matte Red copyright sprite

The RGCTM1 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2017. It was produced in Japan as part of the new Ibanez Guitar Development Center custom made line. Just six examples of this model were produced with each crafted by a single luthier.

The RGCTM1 features a one-piece selected lightweight ash body with white pearl multi-binding bolted to a maple and walnut neck with a custom U-shaped profile and an ash-veneer headstock and a 24 stainless steel fret selected rosewood fingerboard with luminescent offset dot position markers and side dots. Components include dual Bare Knuckle humbucking pickups, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut, Gotoh tuning machines and Gotoh Free Lock II strap pins. Controls include a Bourns 24mm shaft master volume pot, a three-way pickup selector and a mini-toggle switch which coil taps both pickups and activates a high-pass filter when tapped.

The body of the RGCTM1 differs from a standard RG shape in that the elbow contour on the top is deeper and the neck joint has a unique cutaway design.

The RGCTM1 was produced only in 2017.
