    Default NGD! all original green EVH

    just reposting from my other forums
    So, get up at 3am to do a little shopping with my buddy Dan. Figure we got time to burn and fedex doesn't usually come until after 3pm in my area. Check my tracking number at 7:30am and it just showed as out for delivery, ok we got time. We finish everything, go out for breakfeast and I get home at 9...and guess what is already waiting for me! Didn't have to spend the day creeping through the blinds or anything lol.

    I've been through many EBMM's these last couple years and even had my falling out over a certain green axis tribute( BP,you know what Im talking bout) Evh's, axis,wolf gangs have all come and gone and I've always had the thought of a green EVH in my mind. Unfortunately with my personality,and we've come to find it may have to do with a psychological disorder, something as simple as a hairline crack in the neck pocket,finish flaw, color or some other ridiculous thing that other people may overlook has caused me to buy/sell/trade to no end...until now.

    Due to that mind set I have, I've basically "put the pussy on a pedestal" if you will concerning a green EVH. As crazy as it sounds, wanting one may have actually caused my constant flipping problem. This has already gone longer than most will read so I guess I'll get to the guitar

    I believe its in better shape than Richard described her on eBay(probably downplaying a bit for the picky eBay crowd) Sounds and plays fantastic. I've searched up and down the web looking at every all original green evh there is to compare the color and this one has absolutely no fade to it whatsoever. Its a very rich emerald green and I couldn't get the color to capture as it is in person. This one is more of the "marble" type of top instead of quilt. Could've been a plain top for all I care, Biggest part for me is its all original. I don't care how much its worth or how much it cost me, this will be my main player at this point, sorry EVH collectors lol. At this point in time, this one is coming with me to the end so it doesn't matter if it acquires more play wear.

    That's a fantastic looking axe !!!
    The EBMM guitars are by far my favorite looking ones that Eddie has ever been involved with . Yours looks amazing , and I love the green quilt . Congrats and kudos to you , you lucky bastard Haha .

    Just a question though ... is it just me , or does it look like it's been refretted with larger ones than the original small wire ? In fact - I wish that all of Ed later guitars (EBMM , Peavey , EVH/Fender) came with large or jumbo frets . Either way , she's a beauty . Cheers !

    I have a similar obsession. I've got an Axis. It's my favorite guitar. I've got two Peavey Wolfgang Archtop guitars. Had three. Sold one. And I've got a EVH USA Wolfgang Stealth. Instead of enjoying them I want the EBMM EVH. I know the Axis is close. But it ain't the same!

    Congrats on your awesome guitar! I know how rare the green ones are.

    Just a trick of the eye I guess, This baby is all original. Just as a precaution I a/b'd against all the pics of my previous EBMM EVH's, have had quite a few through these hands. Plus you can just tell with it in your hands she's still a virgin and frets have not been removed. The newer fender ones are way too small

    Hard to believe it's been almost 20 years since EVH ended his association with EBMM.

    I have a blue quilt top that I got in 1994 and it's been my main guitar ever since. Nothing else I have ever played even comes close to it. Like the OP mentioned I don;t care what it is worth because it ain't going anywhere. It's already spoken for by my son once I die. I think I paid like $1899 or something for it when I bought it and it has been worth every penny. It certainly has it's share of wear, but it still looks nice and as I've mentioned, it's for playing, not investment.

    Congrats to the OP, looks like a fantastic axe!
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Congrats on the Ernie. I LOVE the color. I have a Cherryburst one but I wish I got the green or blue one.

    The quilt looks incredible too. These are amazing guitars and they sound like mofo's.

    Mine's coming with me when I go too.

    It's my baby and no ones but me plays it. Not even Eddie will be touching it if he ever decides to pop over.... He can play one of my PV's or EVH's

    Thanks for the reply . I think it's great that you finally got your green guitar in original condition . I'm envious ... Cheers

    I would be buried with that one. Favorite guitar ever right there. I love my Puple flame EBMM. I would only trade it for a purple quilt or green quilt.

    The green EVH is KILLER! congrats! Here's my trans-black. One of the reasons I love this guitar is that the black has faded slightly to a greenish hue. Check it out. . .
