Overview

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.

you will shred so fast your hands melt from the awesomeness of this guitar!

By Andres Agbisit

from Moses Lake, WA

I was completely blown away with how great this guitar sounds. I was a little skeptical because a lot of other reviews from other sites said that the pickups in it were just "ok". I thought they were more crisp and clear than anything I have played. I own the Zakk Wylde Epiphone and a Randy Rhoads Jackson and they just don't compare. Seems to stay in turn pretty well. What's cool is Herman Li plays this exact model live which is awesome. The guitar is light and feels great, I love how easy it is to reach the 24th fret! Playing solos just sound so much better with this guitar! You really can play anything with it from Sweet Home Alabama to Mettalica. Overall I'm incredibly satisfied!
