It's been a while since I've posted- used to be Guy Cool now I'm Cool Guy. Pretty fancy, eh?!
Well, I just turned 40, and my amazing wife wanted to get me a nice birthday present...
To cut a long story short, she got me an EGEN!
Apparently the first one in the UK (Thanks to Jon at Guitar Mania-cheers!).
What can I say...it's amazing.
(First of all, I'm not a rabid DF fan, although I do like them, and have a lot of respect for Herman-remember the first UK Jemfest, awesome performer, with a good sense of humour)
I've got other high-end Ibanez (DNA, Floral, RG-Art, 1077XL) but this plays the best-great neck, great pick-up selection, never played one of these slim bodies before, but it's pretty good, and I love the matt purple vs gold hardware.
I am very lucky to have a great wife and a cool guitar. My playing does not justify having them, but I have been playing a while, and have played some real dogs, so I feel I have paid my dues so to speak.
If anyone wants some more info about the EGEN let me know and I'll try and answer questions (I know these things are pretty rare, and I had trouble finding much out about them before it arrived).
If anyone was thinking about getting one but had second thoughts because of the Kung Fu Grip it is actually pretty subtle compared to a Jem Monkey Grip.
Cheers, it's good to be back
