The Ibanez RG1570 is an RG seriesPrestige electric guitar model introduced in 2003. It replaced the classic RG570 model first issued in 1989, now under the Prestige label and with the new Edge Pro tremolo.
In 2005, the RG1570 was revised with a five-piece neck and new neck profile and some visual updates like hardware color and inlays.
The RG1570 was discontinued in 2009 but returned in 2010 as the new RG1570Z featuring the Edge Zero tremolo. Various other models have been based on the RG1570 including a couple of limited edition models. The RG1570L is the left-handed version and the RGR1570 is an RG1570 with a reverse headstock. A slightly upscale model is the RG2570EX and its successors.
Production of the RG1570 was officially ended in 2009 in favor of the new RG1570Z introduced in 2010, featuring the Edge Zero tremolo. In the USA however, both the Edge Pro-equipped models and the new models are listed as the RG1570. As of 2011, the RG1570Z is still listed as the RG1570 on the US website and in the US catalogs.
