    Good eye, @headcrash. That was the original prototype/NAMM guitar. Perhaps they were considering custom EBMM pickups for this BFR run.

    However, the actual guitars that shipped have stock DiMarzio Axis pickups. See this example from The Music Zoo on Reverb:

    Normal route and normal pickups.

    Whew! I have, and always will like the look of the triangle ears for these guitars. It’s been something that has made the Axis so special from day one when it was the EVH. Glad they haven’t changed.
    EVH - Blue Quilt
    1995 - Luke I - Pearl Blue
    2009 - 25th Anniversary

    Take a break from playin' guitar and read a webcomic: nemu*nemu!

    Hi Headcrash,
    There hasn't been any changes to the electronics on these BFR guitars. They are the same pickups that come on the non-BFR models.
