The RG3570Z is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2012. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line. It replaced another model from the prior year with the same name, but there are several visual differences between the two models.

The RG3570Z features basswood body bolted to a titanium-reinforced maple and walnut Super Wizard neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and wedge sharktooth position markers. Components include DiMarzio pickups with a pair of direct-mounted humbuckers flanking a single-coil, an Edge Zero double locking tremolo with a removable ZPS tuning stabilizer and Gotoh tuning machines.

This RG3570Z was produced for just one year.
