The S8570 is an S series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2010. It was the first S series model in the high end Japanese handcrafted J Custom line since the S9870 in 2001. It was made by FujiGen.

The S8570 features a 19mm thick AAA flamed maple top with binding on a mahogany body bolted to a titanium-reinforced maple and walnut neck with Velvetouch finish and a 24-fret selected rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and Tree of Life vine inlays. Components include DiMarzio pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a ZR2 double locking tremolo bridge with a removable ZPS tuning stabilizer and Gotoh tuning machines.

The S8570 was discontinued after 2011.
