From what I can gather it's a model introduced in fall 95 in Europe at least along with the

RG505, Like an RG550

RG507, Like an RG570, but with plain finished

RG527, Like an RG570 with a reverse headstock

RG547. Natural Ash RG570, with V6 pickups.

I cna't actually find my info on the RG517. which is troubling me, but I'm sure it's here somewhere.
