The RG8570Z is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2009. It is made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the high-end J Custom line.
The RG8570Z replaced the RG8470Z; the middle pickup in that model was swapped out for a DiMarzio True Velvet. Other features include an African mahogany body with flamed maple top and binding, maple bound rosewood fingerboard with a vine inlay and the Edge Zero tremolo.
While most J Custom models are offered exclusively in Japan, the RG8570Z was offered in Europe starting in 2016.
The RG8570ZL is a left-handed version. The RG8570ZXX is a similar limited production model with a curly maple top and gold hardware.
