The electric guitar of a new generation.

When DragonForce guitarist Herman Li wanted a guitar that could handle his otherworldly technique and musicality, both he and Ibanez knew it would take time to get everything just right. It took three years. But they did get it right. The Ibanez E-Gen8 is played by Li exactly as it is, live on stage, in the studio, right off-the-shelf without any modifications. The 3-piece maple EGEN bolt-on neck has the high-speed Ibanez Wizard II profile that gives Herman the playability he needs. A 24-fret rosewood fretboard is special oval inlays.

The Edge III bridge/tremolo design provides even more stability and strength under the most demanding playing conditions. Now in gold hardware for Herman's EGEN. The new Edge III is similar in construction and feel to the original Edge locking tremolo; however, it also features lower profile fine-tuners inspired by the Lo-PRO Edge and massive new-design saddles.

The EGEN8 pickup force is ready and able for a wide range of sound and attack: V7 (H) neck, S1 (S) mid, and V8 (H) bridge. The Vintage 7 neck humbucker with ceramic magnet is tight but bright, very dynamic for chording and rhythm. The SINGLE 1 in the middle position is traditional-sounding yet high output single coil with Alnico-5 pole pieces for even string output. Designed to work with humbuckers in the split position. The Vintage 8 bridge humbucker with alnico magnet is warm yet articulate lead pickup with enhanced overtones. Good harmonics without excessive brightness.

The special scalloped hand grip on the top horn of the EGEN8, modeled from Herman's actual right hand!

Case sold separately.

A Tone Monster

By Scott Becker

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ibanez EGEN8 Herman Li Signature Electric Guitar:

I am a BIG fan of the Ibanez S series, and have owned many. This one called to me for its aesthetic beauty, but once I got it in my hands and plugged it in, I was even more blown away. It plays lightning fast and low, and with the push/pull volume pot, it opens up even more tonal variations than a mere mortal 5 way selector switch! In person the wood, the craftsmanship and the gold accents really take your breath away. It sincerely never fails, when someone walks in and sees it for the first time, their jaws always drop and the words that infallibly come out of their mouth are "whoa...nice guitar" And all of that ...makes this axe worth the price of admission.

This is an Ibanez from Heaven

By Scott Becker

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ibanez EGEN8 Herman Li Signature Electric Guitar:

The variety of tones out of this guitar is huge, the action is lightning quick, shred, jazz whatever, it can do it. 8 different pickup configurations... got ya covered. The pick ups are more than capable.

The wood is gorgeous if maybe a little naked with a matte finish, I'm afraid it'll get dirty. Awesome craftsmanship. It's a Cadillac of Ibanez, and I've owned a LOT of Ibanez's. Gold hardware gives it a nice amount of bling.

To quote Ferris, "If you have the means, I highly recommend you pick one up."
