The RG8570ZL is a left-handed RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the high-end J Custom line.

The RG8570ZL features a 4mm thick AAA grade flamed maple top with white binding on an African mahogany body bolted to a titanium reinforced maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with white binding and pearl and abalone Tree of Life vine inlays. Components include an Edge Zero double locking tremolo bridge with a removable ZPS tuning stabilizer, DiMarzio pickups with Air Norton and Tone Zone humbuckers flanking a True Velvet single-coil and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RG8570Z is a similar right-handed model.

The RG8570ZL was discontinued after 2017. A similar model with the same name was introduced in 2019.
