The RR50 is a Rocket Roll II series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1982. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The RR50 features a vee-shaped birch & basswood body bolted to a 3-ply maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. Components include a Gibraltar fixed bridge, Quik Change tailpiece, a pair Ibanez humbucking pickups with a covered Super 70 at the neck and an uncovered V2 with white bobbins at the bridge both of which are mounted in white pickup rings, Sure Grip knobs, and Smooth Tuner II machine heads. The output jack is mounted on the face of the guitar.

The RR400 is a similar model with a set-in neck, flame maple top, different neck pickup and split block fretboard inlays. The DT50 and IC50 are related models with, respectively, Destroyer and Iceman body shapes.

This RR50 was discontinued after 1982. It was replaced for 1983 by the tremolo-equipped RR150.
