    Default Original EBMM, not Axis

    What are the chances of finding an original Ernie Ball Music Man (from the 90ís), not the newer Axis, for sale? I canít find a single one on eBay. Are they really rare now?

    Thanks.

    Thatís the ballpark. Iíve seen them all the way up to 5 digits. About 5-8k depending on color is a average. Be careful of the axis ex that were the leftover EVH bodies being sold in Japan.

    Ok, hahaha

    So realistically the only guitar you can get is the Axis. Are the pups in the Axis the same as the 90ís EBMM?

    If not, what pups do I need to put into an Axis to get the warm tone in the original 90ís EBMM?

    Thank you. Peace...

    (Thanks fudd. Didnít see your response. Appreciate the help)

    Tone zone and air Norton pickups are what is in the EBMM EVH guitars.

    Fuddís right that DiMarzio claimed the Tone Zone and Air Norton were closest to the EVH pickups for decades. I think they recently changed the bridge pickup recommendation to the AT-1 pickup.

    Pariahís Poundcake set are replicas of the original EBMM EVH pickups.

    Thank you Jedi, but fudd technically did not use the word "closest"

    I think there were some PU proprietary rights going on when Edward split from EBMM.

    Now's not the time to buy anything EVH off Ebay or Reverb.

    I saw a 2009 first run EVH Wolfgang going for $12,000. A music store up here was selling it.

    Disgusting.

    That being said they're only worth what people are willing to pay for em, so if somebody's dumb enough to spend that....that's what they're worth.

    There are 2 of Edís guitars going to auction in December. Look it up.


    Overpriced.

    Not really. The auction was planned before Ed passed.

    Also, the Art Series guitars went for $10,000+ 16 years ago. They were striped, played onstage and signed by Ed.

    The second guitar was built and owned by Eddie.

    They're valued correctly and the second one might be undervalued.

    How close are the Pariah pickups to the real deal? I was going to modify an AT-1 to match the original specs (de-air and de-vintage is the Axis pickup) but if the Pariah is an exact replica I will opt for that instead to save time and money.
    There's a thin line between genius and insanity. I like to dance on it.

    What Jedi said...DiMarzio had the AT-1 listed as the EVH EBMM pickups but now itís the Tone Zone and Air Norton. But like Jedi said Pariah has the Poundcake pickups that look sweet. I donít have them but...

    Also check Reverb for the EVH EBMM, but as you saw, prepare to write a big check
