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 due to the fact that their song "The Fire and the 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.
