Herman Li has offered his social media followers a first-look glimpse at a lavish, ultra-colorful custom PRS electric guitar, which he unveiled via a side-by-side shot with his flagship Ibanez EGEN18 signature guitar.

Is this a sign hinting at an upcoming collaboration between the DragonForce guitarist and the brand? The truthful answer is, probably not, at least not in this guise – given the appearance of Ibanez’s locking tremolo system, the guitar in question is likely to be an extremely custom PRS build.
