    Correction and posting here in case somebody is later seacrhing for the info.

    EBMM will do setup and electronic work on EVH and pre-EB music man guitars but will not do fretwork. They will do fretwork on other EBMM instruments.

    Why no fret work on an EVH? I ask because I have a 1996 Axis which I have thought about sending back for some work including fretwork and basically its the same thing.

    I'm not speaking for EBMM, but I do know that the EVH necks are a different width and not able to be replaced should something go horrifically wrong.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    legal thing!!! lawyers involved, they can´t work on EVH models anymore, read that in the forum years ago. But every one who does refrets is able to do that work and could order the correct fretwire.

    Pete is correct. They don't make necks of those dimensions anymore. It's basically something If there was a problem, no way to replace it.

    Unfortunately, we do no offer fretwork on the EVH model guitars. If your Axis needs fretwork, we can help you with that. We also, still carry the pots and switches for the EVH if you need those. If you have any questions, shoot me an email at customerexperience@ernieball.com
