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 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.

What is your opinion of this product?
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
What is your opinion of this product?
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
What is your opinion of this product?
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.
