What type of RG is Herman Li using in the "Through the Fire and Flames" video?

I went to their page, and it said he used RGs, and I looked it up on ibanez.com and I found one like it, but the one in his pic looks like it has more rounded edges.

For all who haven't saw the video, here it is.

This has been bugging me SO bad.

Thanks.

It's actually an S series guitar.

Really?

I know it has those stripes on it, and it doesn't look like and archtop.

I could be wrong, but I know he uses S series, it just said on the page he has 2 RGs and it looked like it in the vid.

Its an S470SOL (stained oil finish), i think he modified the bridge from Lo-TRS to an OFR/Lo-Pro Edge.

Now he's using an S2170FB (or stained oil finish), S-Prestige.

wtf? why??

this is why: http://youtube.com/watch?v=f2qY_Rn_qKs&search=dragonforce%20guitar%20world

"As a side note, this is probably one of the worst "Betcha Can't Play This" columns to ever appear in Guitar World...but it's still funny and hey, chances are, you could play it better, haha. Probably should be renamed to, "Betcha Can't Play This - Cause We Can't Either!" Don't get me wrong, I know these guys can be a lot better than this, but man... "

as a second side note: the other guitar player is complete garbage. i could play that years ago and i'm 15.

How do you play a tapping part that easy, that sloppily?

Yes, it was a crappy vid, they were most likely drunk out of their heads, and they probably should have waited till they were sober enough.

But if he's so bad, and that's you hate him, what about this (I know the song is getting old, but it's the only good vid I couild find of an awesome solo with Sam too)

Right, the only song I like from DF is through the fire and flames.

That video is just ridiculous, you see that small box which shows a close up of their fingers? it doesn't match at all.

their fingers are ridiculous, everything is exaggerated, i can make smells like teen spirit look much harder than that.
#15
^about his guitar, he uses an S470 with stained oil finish
and a very simarlar model with body binding, he hasnt changed the trem at all, and hes changed to using seymour duncans i think, thats the only change he made, the rest is all stock

herman li is a christmas tree, he should be put back in a box for another year.
Always waiting for that bit of inspiration.

I wasn't making fun of them if you actually read my post and understood it, using your brain and not ass.

I have my guitar on my lap when I surf the forums, when I find something interesting, I apply it.

You are being a retarded dick here, next time, get your facts right before even opening your mouth or typing.

Sam Titman is pretty underrated, but in the betcha can't play this, he can't even play his own music properly at low speeds, but that's because they are drunk, as usual.
Herman Li is slightly overrated, but well, he is always drunk too.

Imagine you were just a no name person, then next day, everybody on the street recognizes you, and when you go to gig, instead of 20 people, there are 20000 people.

i hate herman li


it all started with you...the thread started off as a simple "what guitar is he using in this video" thread...fair enough, but of course someone had to waltz in and bring up the whole "yeah well, he sucks" argument, and here we go again

the guitar world video - played a tapping sequence quite sloppily, showed a sweep arpeggio followed by playing it overly sloppy as well...so what?! unless i see any of you on the Betcha Can't Play This column, i don't think you should be talking

somehow, the fact that he improvises all of his solos at blindingly fast speeds that most of you can only dream of achieving has escaped all of you...so what basis do you have for the argument that he sucks and whatnot? that he's better than you? that he's more well-known as a guitarist? seriously, put your egos back in their boxes and quit with this whole childish argument, if you ever advance as a guitarist and person in general, you will begin to appreciate a guitar player like herman li
