The RG570FM is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1991. It was produced in Japan by FujiGen.

The RG570FM features flame maple veneers on the top and back of a basswood body bolted to a one-piece maple neck with a tilt joint with a metal plate. The Wizard neck has a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups with a pair humbuckers mounted in pickup rings flanking a single-coil. For 1991 these are the V1/S1/V2 pickups; for 1992 the V7/SB2/V8 pickups are installed.

The bridge for 1991 is the original Edge double locking tremolo. The 1992 model gets the newly introduced Lo-Pro Edge tremolo. Other components include a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RG570 is a similar model without flame maple veneers. The RG560FM is a similar model with a single-coil pickup at the neck.

The RG570FM was discontinued along with the RG570 after 1992.
