The RX40 is a solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1996. It is part of the entry level RX series. It was among the most affordable models offered.

The RX40 features an agathis or maple plywood body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a synchronized tremolo bridge and Ibanez Powersound pickups in an HSS configuration.

This RX40 replaced a similar model with a maple fretboard. It was discontinued after 1997.
