SOLD! This charity auction is over, thank you and congratulations to the winner!
Hi, it’s Herman here from DragonForce. I’m auctioning off this one-of-a-kind guitar from my private collection!
It’s an Ibanez pre-EGEN 18 TVF Prototype with an Edge bridge, the only one like it ever produced! This guitar was used on DragonForce's Billboard top 20 album Ultra Beatdown, and on tour in 2008 to 2009. Recently it was used for recording solos on the latest DragonForce album to be released in the fall of 2019! This guitar was recently professionally setup by the Ibanez Los Angeles Custom shop. It sounds and plays beautifully and the weight of it is perfect. This EGEN18 Prototype is ready for many more years of playing to come!
Specs are listed below.
I’ll include a personalised message with the guitar, and provide some awesome extras (signed T-shirts, posters, picks, and more)!
Not only is this guitar unique, it is being auctioned for a great cause.
100% of the proceeds of this auction will go to benefit the family of Cody Spiess. Earlier this year, Cody was diagnosed with Crutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), an extremely rare brain disease for which there is no treatment and no cure. CJD causes rapid dementia and it is always fatal, usually within a year of diagnosis. Cody is a beloved member of his community - he is an honest and skilled auto technician, a BMX racer, a father and husband. He will leave behind a wife, two small children, his sister Cassidy and his parents.
As you all know, bills don’t stop when a loved one gets ill. Cody has not been able to work since December. His wife is supporting their sons, age 2 and 4, and his family will be responsible for medical bills, end-of-life care, and funeral costs. If you’re not bidding but you’d still like to donate, go to Cody’s Go Fund Me and learn more about his story here:
Every little bit helps, thank you!

Great. Interested. But why you didnt use it on the Power Within. Maximum Overload and Reaching into Infinity tour? And suddenly used it on this future album, same style of solos perhaps? Greetings from Mexico

That's so kind of you . This is definitely a great cause . I'm not guitar player (more like a guitar hero player lol) my dad loves playing guitar but I just love dragonforce . I know I probably don't have the money for this but man I wish I can freaking get this . Also can't wait for the new album . Hope you come tour to Ontario Canada more often . Wish you can go to Windsor . Their Caesars casino is beautiful and that's where a lot of famous and performers go to . I'll spend my hard earn money just to get into the front of it if I had to lol. I'm really wishing sometime you can make it to windsor . Love you all.

Materialism is not what playing music is about my dude. Play guitar because you love it, not because of expensive and good looking gear/instruments.
