The RT452 is a twelve-string RT series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1993. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The RT series represent a "retro" take on the RG; instead of a locking tremolo and high-output pickups, they featured a more traditional appearance and sound, reminiscent of a vintage Fender Stratocaster.

The RT452 features an alder body bolted to a maple Viper neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups mounted on a tortoiseshell pickguard and a Gotoh 12-string fixed bridge.

The RT450 is a similar six-string model.

The RT452 was discontinued after 1993 along with the entire RT series.
