Dates of manufacture: 

1992 to 2002

IBANEZ made the RG570 between 1989 and 2002 as part of their RG series of electrics. The RG570 is like the RG550 but without a pickguard and typically with a rosewood fretboard unlike the maple board of the RG550. The lack of a pickguard means that the RG570 has different body routing to the RG550 and pickup mounting rings instead of pickguard mounted pickups.

When first introduced the RG570 was had Vintage 1 and 2 humbucking pickups and an Edge tremolo. In 1992 the tremolo was changed to the Lo Pro Edge tremolo and pickups were changed to Ibanez V7 and V8 units.

In its final 5 years of production (from 1997 until 2002) the RG570 Ibanez had the older Edge tremolo returned to the line-up and the single piece maple neck was replaced by a Super Wizard neck using a two piece maple with bubinga laminate .

Although discontinued in 2002 Ibanez issue a similar model in 2003 - the RG1570 was part of the Prestige series.
