Your Chance to Play Shred Master Herman Li's Guitar!

The Ibanez EGEN18 signature solidbody electric guitar lets you play the same axe used by virtuoso shredder Herman Li! The DragonForce guitarist is a spellbinding player whose technique, speed, and creativity require a guitar that's up to the task. Ibanez teamed up with Herman to create the EGEN18, which includes a thin mahogany body/flame maple top, an ultra-fast 5-piece neck, and scalloped frets on the neck's highest reaches. You even get Herman's distinctive upper-horn grip! This monster axe also sports two custom humbuckers and a high-powered, low-profile middle pickup. You get huge tones and plenty of them from the EGEN18!

Play the same guitar Herman Li plays

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 certainly did get it right. The Ibanez EGEN18 is played by Li exactly as it is, live on stage, in the studio, right off the shelf without any modifications.

An instrument fit for the ultimate shredder

DragonForce has enjoyed a great deal of popularity recently because their song "Through the Fire and Flames" is the song used for the most difficult level of Guitar Hero. That's a high compliment, indeed - and a testament to Herman Li's mindblowing speed and technique. When you're as good as this guy, you need a precision tool that's perfectly suited to shred mercilessly. That's what the EGEN18 gives you.

Made from only the good stuff

The EGEN18 features a thin mahogany body topped with an amazing-looking flame maple top. Its 5-piece maple/walnut neck is super comfortable, and it's topped by a rosewood fingerboard that's scalloped from the 21st to 24th frets. You also get premium hardware, including an Edge-Zero trem bridge with a stronger arm action (preferred by Herman). Between a pair of DiMarzio HLM Herman Li signature pickups lies a high-powered, low-profile middle pickup that won't interfere with picking.

Get your hands on this distinctive axe

What most becomes a shred king? How about an axe you'll recognize a mile away. The EGEN18 features a deep lower cutaway for maximum fret access, while the upper horn has a special grip carved to fit Herman's hand. It's definitely a distinctive look. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer and grab an EGEN18 for yourself!
