Eddie Van Halen had a long legacy of killer signature model guitars.

Charvel, Fender, Peavey and Ernie Ball Musicman.

If you talk to 50 guitarists and ask them which one is the best, you'll probably get 49 different answers and reasons why.

I've always favored the EBMM EVH. I'm not saying its the best of the bunch, it just my favorite.

As most of you may know the EBMM EVH was made from 1990 to 1995. Eddie left EBMM in 96. The USA production EVH was re-named AXIS, same basic design, moved the toggle, added a belly cut.

At the same time, EBMM marketed and produced the AXIS EX in Japan. The Axis EX was essentially the same as the EVH model. The EX was originally, as I understand, made from leftover EBMM EVH parts that were shipped to Japan and made there, minus the EVH signature on the headstock.

Since EVH's passing, the prices on the EBMM EVHs have gone through the roof...as well as the AXIS EX models.

Anyway, I had been wanting to get a EBMM EVH again...i had a few back in the early 2000s. So I took a chance on couple of the EX models to see if the hype about them was true.

I picked up 2 EXs this week. A 2000 Trans-blue quilt (heavily faded top) and a 1997 Trans-pink quilt one piece top (lightly faded top)

Both of them have the same DiMarzio pickups as the USA EVH. Same Gotoh Musicman trem (minus the offset saddles). Same Schaller tuners. Same toggle.

Both are great players!!!

Awesome guitars... I have a EVH EBMM (Cherryburst), 4 PV Wolfgangs and 4 EVH Wolfgang's and while they are all great the EB's are by far the best. Cant say enough good things about them.
