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 rosewood fretboard and special 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.
