The RS111 is a Roadstar II series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1985. It was part of a special line dubbed the Comet Series II.

The RS111 features a flat basswood double cut body with radiused edges bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a single Ibanez Super 70 humbucking pickup mounted in a color matched pickguard with a coil split on the volume, a Powerocker synchronized tremolo bridge, knurled Tek Grip control knobs and Smooth Tuner II tuning machines.

Several related models round out the series which differ only in the pickup arrangement: the RS121 has a pair of humbuckers, the RS136 has three single coils and the RS141 has a humbucker at the bridge along with a pair of single coils. All feature color-matched pickguards.

The RS110 is a similar model with a black pickguard.

The RS111 was offered only in 1985.
