    The Axis EX is a built-in-Japan Axis made with American parts that is identical to the EBMM EVH, except it doesn't have EVH's signature on top. They're still in production today.

    So as far as I know, the EX should have the same neck profile as the EVH, but I've never played two to compare.

    I am guessing most people have not tried the Ex. The Axis Ex is made for the Japanese market. Not many of them make it to the US.

    Oh, yeah... I now recall them being mentioned around here before.

    What would it take to buy one and have it shipped to the the U.S.?

    I've got this EVH held as collateral while my Frankie is loaned out to a band here in Houston. This guitar is definitely on my list of best players.

    I made a neck for someone recently and used this as my guide. I got the info from EB and this one was completed on 06/02/93.

    its the same profile. its the same guitar. the only difference is the maple cap isnt as thick as the evh and the axis. its not a veenear by any means but not as thick. there where some discussions over at ebmm over the last few yrs about the axis ex.
