The RX170 is a solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1994. It was made in Korea as part of the entry level RX series.

The RX170 features an alder body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a TZ synchronized tremolo bridge and Ibanez Powersound pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil.

This particular model was sold only in Europe and discontinued after 1995. Another model with the same name but with a maple fretboard was produced concurrently and sold in the American market. A similar model was also sold in Japan in 1999.

The RX170 was replaced for 1996 by the very similar RX170D.
