RG 570?

Anyone ever seen a 570 with a reverse headstock and sharktooth inlays from the factory?

Nothing in the model number states reverse headstock . Pickup config is weird on the 565
PLus he hasnt said anything about if he has or has seen one. Hes just asking about it. The 570 is probably one of the most common rgs out there

Maybe the Skolnick model? Although the body shape and the pickups would be a dead giveaway unless it was a Frankenez.

I love the look of the 570 pickup rings though

Of course, I like the look of pickup rings on almost any guitar

I know, I was just making the statement that the RG570 has pickup rings and I prefer that look as opposed to the rear-routed direct-mounted look. I really like them when they stand out against the guitar's paint job, i.e. JS100BK, JS900, etc.

I can back that up.
In 1991 and 1992 RG565 was available that had a reverse headstock and weird pickup combination (neck single and bridge humbucker).
All the models though only came with maple necks and plain dots, no shark tooth inlays.
Maybe it was something available in Asia only or............who knows???

Yes, In the late 90s there was a guitar called the RGR570, it had both sharktooth inlays and a reverse headstock (denoted by the extra "R" in the name), if I recall correctly it was available in blue sparkle ( I think our Pablo has one?) and Iron Pewter/purple or something.

There was an RG565DX of which I've only ever heard of 2, one yellow one on ebay, and one in a post here on JEMsite somewhere in CA I believe.

Kind of what I thought guy's, never heard of one. I have been discussing this with the owner who claim's it is indeed a 570???? No other number's. He say's it's black in color and all original except the pick-up's. Said he bought it brand new for $1299. Who know's? I like the 570's and would love a factory reverse with sharktooth but I think this is a part's guitar even though the owner say's it isn't. Thanks for anything you may have contributed to this post.

I don't know about that, the RG565 has pretty much always been a Single Coil at the neck and a bridge humbucker configuration. The RG565 DX had that same config, but with a colour matched headstock and sharkfins on a bound rosewood board.

The RGR570 has the same bound board with sharkfins but an H-s-H configuration with no pick guard.
