The RG4570Z is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2010. It was produced in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Prestige line. It replaced the RG3620Z from the previous year with the addition of a middle pickup.
The RG4570Z features a flamed maple top with binding and a decorative abalone strip on a mahogany body bolted to a titanium reinforced maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with small pearl dot position markers. The neck has the new Ultra HP profile with compound radius. Components include DiMarzio pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, an Edge Zero double locking tremolo bridge with removable ZPS3 tuning stabilizer and Gotoh tuning machines.
For 2011, the RG4570Z appeared only in the European and Asian catalog and the Vintage Violin finish was added to the lineup.
