The RG570 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1995. This model replaced an earlier version with a tilt neck joint. This new model features the newly introduced All Access neck joint.

This RG570 features a basswood body bolted to a one-piece quartersawn maple neck. The neck has a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. It has Ibanez V7 and V8 humbucking pickups flanking an Ibanez S1 single-coil which are mounted to the body with pickup rings. The bridge is the Lo-Pro Edge tremolo. Other components include a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

For the Japan market it has a Wizard neck and for the USA market the neck is a Wizard II.

The RG507 is a similar model with the Edge tremolo which was offered in Europe. The RG570CT is a similar model with a gravure hard maple top and gold hardware. The RG570MH is a related model with a mahogany body, different pickups and gold hardware.

A new RG570 with the Edge tremolo replaced this model for 1997 in the US. This model with the Lo-Pro Edge continued to be offered in Japan through 1997.
