The RGPR2 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2000. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The entire stock of RGPR2 guitars, along with its siblings the RGPR1 and RGPR3 was bought by Guitar Center for distribution exclusively through their stores in Texas. Because of this, these guitars are known as the "Texas Specials". Although they are branded as Prestige, they have aspects that are more closely associated with the higher end J Custom line and in fact they have J Custom stamps in the neck pockets.

The RGPR2 features a mahogany body with quilted maple top with abalone purfling and pearloid binding bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with pearloid binding and offset abalone dot position markers. Components include white DiMarzio pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a Lo Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RGPR3 is very similar but lacks the middle pickup and has a red finish. The RGPR1 also has a dual humbucker configuration with a flame maple top with a natural finish and cream pickups and binding.

The Texas Special guitars were made in late 1999 and early 2000 for distribution in 2000. It is believed that only twelve examples of each model were produced.
