    Finding an EVH in purple that hasn't faded out is rare. I would guess $3k+ would be a realistic price if this were legit.

    If they're asking more than $70 for this one, I'd laugh.

    Just to confirm the above comments, there is so much wrong with this guitar it isn't even a decent copy.

    If the nut is tight, you've rotated the nut clamps, and the problem is still there, I would suggest it probably is not a problem with the nut. Have grooves worn into the nut itself? (not the clamps)...

    Have you tried moving the nut clamp blocks to another position - rotating them so they are each clamping a different string? Reversing that particular clamp so it's sitting in the opposite direction?...

    This is one of the only ones I've seen where the purple isn't completely faded out. That adds a lot of value. There simply aren't that many in this color condition. This alone may price it out of...

    Pickups, hardware, neck, action... sounds like it may not be the guitar for you.

    But, your guitar is still a young guitar and in my experience, necks take some time to settle in. I have several...

    You really are asking for it! :)

    I agree that the wood in the guitar should not effect how good the Axis pickups function in a given guitar. Great pickups are great pickups. ...Yet not everyone...

    I haven't tried this, but I'm guessing it could sound really good. A sound that's kind of a cross between a PAF and a Super Distortion? I've never checked to see if the Axis/EVH pickups can be...

    I've got a '93 EVH and another guitar with a JB in the bridge.

    My comparison may be a little null because of the age of my EVH and the wood/hardware differences between the guitars (not just...

    Fair enough BP. I wasn't trying to be offensive. Clearly, I didn't succeed on that front.

    So much of this tends to sound like voodoo to me. Yet I can't deny that my guitars have generally sweetened with age. One of them being my EVH that I got new in '93. Another being a guitar I built in...

    Sorry, I can't answer your question.

    But I don't understand why you would want it to float and then install a device to keep it from floating...?

    Just curious. Good luck with your project.

    I don't own one but I played one in a store and was very impressed. It's a killer amp. I like it much better and it's more versatile than the PV 5150's, which I never really cared for.

    I've thought this for a long time. Maybe a big part of what people say when they use the word "sustain" is partially "feel". I'm just guessing though. I don't see the point of saying, "this guitar is...
