The RG570DX is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1999. It was produced in Japan by Fujigen. Like the version from a decade prior, this RG570DX was a spot model which never appeared in a catalog.

The RG570DX features a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a bubinga "skunk stripe" with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and sharktooth position markers. The RG570DX has Ibanez V7 and V8 humbucking pickups mounted in pickup rings flanking an S1 single-coil. Other components include an original Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RG570 is a similar model which has dot fretboard inlays.

It's believed the RG570DX was discontinued after 2000, but as a non-catalog model details are sparse.
