Unrivaled versatility in this Ernie Ball Steve Morse signature guitar. A gorgeous Quilt Maple top was added to tie the build together and offer a unique aesthetic. The signature Steve Morse pickup configuration offers a wide palette of tonal options as well as a high degree of delicacy for both clean and more heavily distorted tones. Additionally, this guitar is ergonomically superior, making it an ideal choice for longer stints of stage and studio work.
From Ernie Ball Music Man:
"The SMY2D celebrates the 20th anniversary of signature Music Man artist Steve Morse. Combining the beautiful elegance of figured maple with the distinctively voiced Poplar tone-wood, custom Dimarzio pickups and simplified intuitive pickup arrangement, the SMY2D delivers the feel and playability one would expect from such a high caliber instrument, but more importantly retains all the unique signature elements Steve has relied upon throughout his amazing career."
