I like the EGEN a lot, I think it is a cool new guitar with a lot of good features. I think the grip is cool personally, and the whole 24 fret S prestige in general is pretty badarse. It is also cool that it has new sig pickups and I think the trem is specially designed for this model.
What I don't like about it is the purple stain and gold hardware. I think it would be cool in a black stain and powder cosmo harware, but that is just me. I also don't like the pickups rings, and think that direct mounted pickups would be better.
But, it is the first year of this model, maybe next year it will come in more combinations, but overall I think it is great model and one of the best axes offered by Ibanez this year.
If it was black stain with cosmo, or powder cosmo hardware, I think ti would be one of the coolest guitars Ibanez ever made. I still think it is one of the cooler ones, just not tweaked completely to my personal tastes. But Herman Li sure has one hell of an axe this year, no doubt.
