Eddie Van Halen's EBMM Guitar

Hey everybody

Can someone here give the exact specs of the EVH EBMM Guitar? Especially the trem because I have been reading on different websites that it was a licensed EBMM Floyd Rose others say it was a Gotoh licensed Floyd Rose. Can someone help?



PS. What kind of pickups does it have, I know that it Dimarzio, but what kind.

It's an Ernieball licensed Floydrose trem manufactured by Gotoh.
I'm pretty sure the pickups were custom wound for that particular guitar.

The Gotoh-made trem is done to exacting EB spec, and it is awesome - very, very solid (much more so than the one you find on the Peavy Wolfgang) and it has a great arm - but it's down bend only (no back route so hard to set up to float)... The pickups are custom Dimarzios that can only be found on the Ernie Ball EVH or Axis - Dimarzio does not sell the pickups seperately...

All you'd have to do to set it up to float is shim the neck a bit.
