    Very interesting guitar - I don't recall seeing many standard Morses with BFR badge.

    And that guy knows how to post pics, huh?

    I would be tempted but just bought TWO Y2Ds (because of Joe's bad influence, might I add!) - so I better take a breather for a couple weeks...

    Yes Eric, the original run of roasted necks were finished. IIRC BP, maybe someone else from EBMM mentioned in a video tHAt that finish on the roasted necks really brought out the qualities ery nicely. I agree. While I do prefer the unfinished roasted necks now, any of the MM Guitars I own that are finished feel good to me. A little different from my AM Deluxe Strat which does have a more tacky feel but not bad. I think we are all just spoiled by how well MM oil/wax necks feel. I have actually heard one complaint from a good friend about the oil/wax finish NOT feeling good in a humid environment, which makes sense to me, so two sides to that coin.

    Oh and by the way, that beautiful AL plays and sounds like a BEAST!

    Awwww... Crap - it's en route!

    I looked... I looked again and saw it also had a rosewood neck... Then mtrejo posted the pics of his AL showing the True Gold in better light... And I crumbled.

    Soupçon - you're the original poster on this thread and didn't claim dibs - but if I misread and overstepped, then let me know and I'll defer to you. Otherwise, thanks for the alley oop!

    Darn - three Morses in less than 24 hours... I gotta go lay down for a while...
