The RGH57II is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It is a signature guitar of Italian guitarist Davide Civaschi (a.k.a. Cesareo) who is best known for his work with Elio e le Storie Tese. It was made in Indonesia in a limited edition run of fewer than 80 examples which were sold only in Italy.[1][2]

The RGH57II features a mahogany body bolted to a maple and walnut Wizard III neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with white binding and dot position markers. Components include dual DiMarzio humbucking pickups mounted in pickup rings and an Edge Zero II double locking tremolo bridge.

The RGH57 is a similar earlier model with slightly different specs. The RGTH57 is an earlier model with neck through body construction.
