    EBMM Axis EVH Jorn Viggo Pagans Mind??

    Hi!
    I'm a spanish guy so I understand english so so...
    I wonder which exact Axis guitar is using Jorn Viggo Lofstad from Pagan's Mind
    He has a huge Distortion Sound and very defined & brilliant distorted chords
    It seem to be an Axis EVH which is suposed to be equal to ... which axis current model? Axis Supersport?
    Are the EVHs so different to the Axis standard?
    On internet, all are talking about the amps & cabs he uses and they know that he uses Music Man Axis EVH but I think that similar models can be very different sounding because the same model sounds different with an ebony fretboard or a rosewood one, with body made of mahogany, alder, ash or basswood body...
    It seems that current axis are made of Basswood but are the Axis EVH made of Basswood Too?
    Maple Top?
    it seems the pickups are dimarzio HH2 Custom humbuckers but, can anyone buy the same pickups from dimarzio directly? I don't think so
    In any case, is there any pickup one could buy separately who is similar to these pickups?
    Sorry for making a lot of questions but I'm a bit frustrated about it hehehe
    Seeya!!!

    From what I have looked on net past few minutes he uses many guitars.

    However I saw him playing a blue Musicman EVH.
    This guitar is now the Axis with a few minor changes.

    The pickups are not available to buy - only made for Musicman.
    Dimarzio say the Air Norton and Tonezone are very close but its just a lie to sell pickups.

    The guitar is basswood with a maple top.

    Just had a look at one of their live DVDs.

    He played blue EBMM EVH with a flame top and d-tuna.

    He played it throughout the DVD.

    5150 Amps and cabs also.

    I think he is a closet EVH fan lol

    Just noticed in the video Slav posted you can see AXIS on the headstock at about 1:10... so he must be playing an AXIS EX from Japan. None the less, that is a great vid.

    Looks like EVH signature to me when I looked.
    Cant really tell due to youtube's crappy flash compression.

    Looks like he has both an Axis and an EVH from his web photos:

    Nope, first of all Axis EX guitars do not have any name on them. Only Ernie Ball Musicman.

    and its an EVH...
