The RG517 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1996.
The RG517 features a basswood body with special flaked finishes in blue and green. The neck is one-piece maple with a bubinga "skunk stripe" with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. It has Ibanez V7 and V8 humbucking pickups flanking an Ibanez S1 single-coil controlled by a 5-way selector switch. Other components include an Edge double locking tremolo bridge and a locking nut.
The RG517 was a spot model which never appeared in a catalog. It is believed to have been offered only in Europe along with several other models which share the same naming convention (e.g. the RG505 and RG507). The RG507 is similar except for the flaked finishes.
The RG570 is identical with the same flaked finishes was offered in the USA for 1997.
