    Default EBMM EVH Body construction?

    Does anyone know for sure what woods they used, and how thick?

    I have been told the EVH models were a 1/8" maple cap over a basswood body.

    maple cap over basswood is correct. i can see the distinct line also when i take the neck off. i will measure it next time i clean the neck. scott may know. from what i have seen he makes some really nice ebmm bodies. for shits and giggles i will measure my top next time i clean the neck for ya.
