The Ibanez 2018 RG570 MIJ Electric Guitar carries on the RG tradition with a lightning fast feel, roaring tones and a cool aesthetic. Built in Japan by Ibanez' master craftsman, the RG570 is the perfect model for touring artists who want a dynamic and affordable performance partner.
Sleek RG body
The RG570 is shaped to the instantly recognisable RG profile, with a slender body depth that makes it light and comfortable. The gently bevelled edges marry perfectly to the ergonomically designed contours, which makes this such an easy guitar to play. The rolled upper bout supports your picking arm by creating a comfortable resting position, removing unwanted obstacles from your path.
Built using lightweight basswood, the body produces a hearty mid-range energy that delivers a confident attack. The low-end roll off prevents it from overpowering the timbre, whilst the highs are searing without being piercing. From hard rock and metal to jazz and funk, the RG570 is perfect for executing any musical style.
The RG series has a steady reputation for producing necks of outstanding quality, and the RG570 is no exception to that rule. Joined with the body is a durable five-piece maple/walnut neck, which is shaped to the Super Wizard profile to maximise speed and comfort. Flat and thin, you can fret chords or soar through solos without anything to hold you back.
Married to the neck is a luxurious maple fingerboard, which is home to 24 frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to aid in your navigation. Thanks to the deep double-cutaway body profile, every fret is within comfortable reaching distance. The RG570 has been treated to the Ibanez Prestige fret edge treatment to ensure the most seamless of transitions along the entire length of the fingerboard.
The Ibanez RG570 is powered by a trio of Ibanez pickups, with V7 and V8 pickups in the neck and bridge, and an S1 single-coil in the middle position. When it comes to versatility, this arrangement gives you everything that you could imagine to produce an epic sonic assault. Whether you're tapping out melodic phrases, sweeping through mind-bending arpeggios, and shredding through power chords as fast as you can, each note will be delivered with precision.
The body is home to Ibanez' Edge tremolo bridge, which affords accurate vibrato control that takes you from minor adjustment extending to deep dives and wailing highs. Each string is anchored securely to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to Ibanez tuning machines, which works closely with the locking nut to uphold tuning integrity and string tension for a reassuringly steady feel, no matter how hard you rock out.
