The RGR480F is an RG series solid body electric guitar model offered by Ibanez in 1996. It was sold only in Japan.

The RGR480F features a resoncast body with a gravure flamed maple top bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a reverse headstock and a 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with sharktooth position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups, a locking nut and an Edge double locking tremolo bridge.

The RGR470 and RGR480 are similar models without the gravure top. Other resoncast bodied RGs include the RG380DX and RG390GX.

The RGR480F was discontinued after 1997.
