Hi, i have an RG1570 prestige. it has a pickguard on it, i want to ditch the single coil, i was wondering if an RG twin humbucker pickguard will fit?

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't.

It depends on the models. Not all RG pickguards are interchangeable. There's usually misaligned screw holes, etc. Then there's the neck pocket--some are curved and others straight.
Your best bet is to get a custom made guard. Try Pickguards Paradise, Pickguards Heaven or Greasy Groove. They usually require that you send in a tracing of your guard, but you'll get one that lines up perfectly.
I can personally vouch for Pickguard Heaven and Greasy Groove. Greasy Groove made my RG550 Space Invaders guard--look around the forum and you'll see it.

I didn't bother with a new pickguard myself. I wired my RG550 like an RG520 using a superswitch. Just left the single coil in there unwired.

hmm, well my rg1570 didnt come with a pickguard, i bought a jem pickguard and had to drill my own holes but everything lined up perfectly. Have had a few different pickguards on there and they all fit well. I have always bought ones that are advertised for RG550/JEM

but now that you mention it i dont know of any new ibanez prestiges with a HH setup and pickguards so might be a bit hard trying to track one down. Might just keep it HSH
