The RGIM7MH is a seven string RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It was made in Indonesia as part of the metal-focused Iron Label line. It replaced the RGIF7 which is a similar model with an ash body.

The RGIM7MH is a multi scale model featuring fanned frets with a 27" (686mm) scale length at the seventh string and a 25.5" (628mm) scale length at the first string. The equalized string tension this design allows contributes to a more "alive" tone while the fanned fret layout provides an ergonomic platform for the player's hand as it moves up and down the neck facilitating speed and comfort.

In addition to the multi scale design the RGIM7MH features a mahogany body bolted to a maple and bubinga neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with no inlays. Components include a fixed bridge and dual active EMG humbucking pickups.

For 2018 a new maple and purpleheart neck was introduced along with a jatoba fretboard.

The RGIM8MH is a similar eight-string model. The RGIM7BC is a similar model with a bocote top.

The RGIM7MH was discontinued after 2018.
