The RX180B is a solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1997. It is part of the entry level RX series.

The RX180B features a plywood or mahogany body with a flame maple top bolted to a maple neck with a color-matched headstock and 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a synchronized tremolo bridge and Ibanez pickups in an HSH configuration.

The RX175B is a similar model without the exotic top.

The RX180B was sold only in Japan and was discontinued after two years in production.
