The UCEW1BE is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1991. It was produced in the United States as part of the Exotic Wood series of the USA Custom line.

The UCEW1BE features a mahogany body with a birdseye maple top bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with offset dot position markers. Components include dual DiMarzio PAF Pro humbucking pickups flanking a DiMarzio VS-1 single-coil, an Edge double locking tremolo bridge and a locking nut.

This represents only the "stock" configuration, as customers could customize the guitar to their own desires.

The UCEW1FM, UCEW1QM and UCEW1LC are similar models with, respectively, flame maple, quilted maple and lacewood tops in place of this model's birdseye maple.

The UCEW1BE was discontinued after 1991.
