You are looking at an Ernie Ball Music Man Steve Morse SM-Y2D Signature Hardtail Electric Guitar Black Burst, serial number G70241. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 13.8 oz.)

Steve Morse has been showing off his musical chops for over 30 years—as both a successful solo artist and with several notable bands including the Dixie Dregs, Deep Purple, and Kansas—and through it all, Morse has remained loyal to Music Man Guitars. In collaboration with Morse himself, the Ernie Ball Music Man SM-Y2D Steve Morse Signature Electric Guitar combines Morse-approved specs and features with sumptuous looks, and of course, plenty of tone to give you a guitar that's ready to take on any performance.

The sleek, double-cutaway body of the Steve Morse Y2D is crafted from poplar and lays beneath a figured maple top. The beautifully grained top wood is accentuated by a transparent Black Burst finish while the cream binding and clear pickguard add a touch of class. Finished in a gunstock oil and hand-rubbed special wax blend, the select maple neck has a smooth, played-in feel. The neck of the Y2D is incredibly facile, featuring a 12” radius rosewood fingerboard topped off with 22 high profile, wide frets and a sculpted neck joint. The headstock is finished in Black Burst to match the guitar top which caters to the Y2D's upscale vibe.

The Steve Morse Y2D comes loaded up with a set of Steve Morse DiMarzio pickups; Steve Morse humbuckers in the bridge and the neck and a Steve Morse single-coil in the middle. Specifically voiced for Morse's dinstinctive playing style, the Steve Morse DP205 neck pickup has a dark, smooth sound with a nice warmth. Fitting together seamlessly with the neck pickup, the higher output DP200 bridge pickup which offers more power with a tight low-end, a strong peak in the upper midrange and amazing clarity and definition when playing harmonics. A custom wound single-coil pickup is located directly above the brige pickup (much closer to the bridge pickup than a single-coil in a typical HSH configuration) for a unique voice that completes Steve Morse's signature sound.

A set of high-quality Schaller M6-IND locking tuners, a standard tuneomatic bridge and a Music Man chrome plated, solid brass tail block provide you incredible stability. The Steve Morse SM-Y2D Signature Hardtail Electric Guitar comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.
