The EGS is an original design patented by Hohner. It was developed in collaboration with industry designers, guitar builders and musicians. The Hohner EGS is a versatile electric guitar focused on ergonomical play and posture manufactured in Europe. The EGS is for guitarists who need a convenient instrument that is easy to play and provides exceptional sound versatility in different environments such as studios, classrooms and the stage. Unlike other conventional guitars designs, this guitar reduces strain on the guitarist's body because it can be played equally well while seated or standing up. The unique ergo-wing permits even classical playing postures. Active single-coil and humbucker pickups from EMG enable strong and typical electric sounds, while an additional piezo pickup permits playing acoustic sounds.
