The RG570 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model reissued by Ibanez in 2013. This model is a reissue of the original RG570, which was produced between 1989 and 2002. It is part of the Genesis Collection which was a group of RG and Artist reissues available only in Japan.

Like the classic RG570, this reissue has a basswood body. It also features a maple and walnut Super Wizard neck with 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. The body-neck connection is with a traditional bolt on joint with a metal plate, although in this case the plate is tilted to allow easier access to the upper frets. Components include the Edge double locking tremolo bridge, a locking nut, Gotoh tuners and Ibanez pickups in an HSH configuration.

Although the RG570 name was discontinued after 2002, the spirit of the model continued to live on in the various models in the RG1570 Prestige lineup including the RG1570Z which was discontinued after 2013.

Other RG models in the Genesis collection are the RG550 and the RG670AH/ RG670MH.
