Product Description

The Ibanez EGEN8 Herman Li Electric Guitar features a smashing Edge III bridge/tremolo design which provides even more stability and strength under the most demanding playing conditions. Now in gold hardware for Herman’s EGEN8! 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. EGEN8’s jatoba fretboard and special Abalone oval inlays. The special scalloped hand grip on the top horn of the EGEN8, modeled from Herman’s actual right hand!

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-Gen is played by Li exactly as it is, live on stage, in the studio, right off the shelf without any modifications.

The new Edge III Tremolo is similar in construction and feel to the original Edge locking trem; however, it also features lower profile fine-tuners inspired by the Lo-PRO Edge and massive new-design saddles. The Edge III features two screws in the arm pocket, which allow easy adjustment of the arm height and torque. In the last two decades, no other guitar maker besides Ibanez has done so much to advance the art and science of the tremolo. The Edge III represents the next phase in locking tremolos.

  • EGEN 24-fret neck
  • Mahogany body with flamed maple top
  • Special upper horn grip and deeper lower cutaway
  • Low-profile middle pickup for extreme picking

Product Review

I ordered my guitar on a Friday and received it the following Tuesday. Ibanez EGEN8 Herman Li Signature. First off the guitar was packed well and between the factory box and the shipping box it was well protected. The price and the payment plan was what sold me on doing business with AMS. I had purchased my previous guitars all at Guitar Center locally and this time I decided to try an online purchase. I had read other reviews from people who have purchased through AMS and saw that they were happy so I gave it a try. I am extremely happy. The guitar is flawless, plays well right out of the box with just a minor tune of the strings. Action, intonation, clarity, ease of play, comfort on the body are all great and the general construction of the instrument is very precise and refined. This Ibanez is every bit as good as an instrument built in Japan and for the price is a steal. I will buy again from AMS. Now my go to store for my musical instruments and gear. I recommend that if you need any new gear you try AMS to see for yourself. I would not be surprised to be reading a positive review from you as well.

Great neck

Product Review

Was concerned because I am use to a wizard neck but this guitar plays great and I couldn’t beat the price. The zero edge tremolo works like no other and takes me back to my first Ibanez RG model. Worth the price and great shipping as always

Good, versatile guitar

Product Review

Been playing classic guitars and wanted a faster lighter type for a change. Love that this is a fast Ibanez but has a classy, non glammy look. The light weight and split coils give it a very bright, fender tone if needed but the humbuckers are high gain if you want to use distortion. I liked the tremolo and works fine. it is built in the guitar and doesn't get in the way. I did not like that the frets were a bit sharp on the neck sides but I filed it easy enough. for 900 it should have smoother filing and better set up. But easy to fix. I play hard rock, classic rock, twangy Cash tunes and this does it all. and its light and super easy to bend those high notes. Keeper

Like a gorgeous dumb blonde - Nice to look at, but don't try to interact

Product Review

Used to own it - The trem is crap made out of garbage metal.. I've had a half dozen S Series guitars, and although this was prettiest to look at I couldn't wait to trade this back in. Wouldn't stay in tune if you touched the tremolo.

not what the video described

Product Review

the video mentions that frets 21 thru 24 are scalloped for fast tapping, the guitar i received didn't have this type of fret board.the edges under the back covers were very rough and frayed. the tremolo bar was very, very hard to engage into the tremolo. the frets are advertised as jumbo, i don't know the ibanez standard for fret size but i have another guitar with jumbo frets and the ibanez doesn't come close. all in all, its a good guitar, just don't watch the video or you will be somewhat disappointed. perhaps Mr. Herman Li would be interested in the difference? after all, it has his name on it. i sure would.

GREAT GUIT FOR THE MONEY

SEEMS WELL MADE, LIKE OTHER IBS I OWN. I MAY REPLACE THE PICKUPS WHICH ARE GOOD FRO THE MONEY,BUT I LIKE THE BETTER PICK UPS OUT THERE. IT PLAYS VERY FAST AND WAS GOOD RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX

TO SOON TO TELL

Your general opinion of this product.

DECENT PURCHASE. GOOD ACTION ON THE NECK; IT'S PLENTY FAST

FEELS VERY LIGHT, WHICH IT IS!

PICK UPS ARE DECENT BUT I AY REPLACE THEM. I FOUND YOU CAN GET ALESS TINNY SOUND, MORE BLUESISH BY CUTTING BACK WITH THE TONE KNOB AND CUTTING BACK ON THE BASS CONTROL ON YOUR AMP...IN MY CASE A 1980 MARSHALL 50 WATT

FINISH IS EXCEPTIONAL

SURPRISED. ACTION OUT OF THE BOX WAS GREAT. THEY SET THE STRING LEVELS QUITE WELL.

any style you want to play this Guitar will perform

quality is great, no problems so far.

Stays in tune no matter what I do to it. I have Strats, Teles, Gibsons and the Ibanez EGEN8 Herman Li just blows them away on reliability when I need it.

Your general opinion of this product.

The Ibanez EGEN8 Herman Li Electric Guitar is lightweight with lots of punch.

Fast neck,Lightweight, All controls are easy to reach.

Pickups can do whatever you need them to do. Therefore, allowing you to perform at a high level.

The finish is fine. Hoping the the gold highlights don't dull over time.

Action perfect out of the box, usually I have to adjust the action and pickups but this guitar was perfect. Including tuning, perfect 440 out of the box. A first for me.
