    Balls To The Walls!

    I have lots of guitar hangers at my house - have posted a few pics previously, but never with "all my Balls at once" - so, after a little re-arranging, here goes!



    From left to right (you might have to scroll):
    The first three aren't exactly EBMM, but are very Morse-related, so included them here. In about 1980, DiMarzio made Steve a couple of backup guitars - one with birdseye maple top, which you see here, and the other with a blue top. In the mid-80s, Steve was in discussion with Guild to build his signature guitar - they never quite came to terms, but Guild did produce a handful of prototypes (I've heard numbers between two and twenty of them) which were never actually approved - here's two of them.
    Y2D Sunset Purple with flame top
    Y2D Rosewood top/neck with wobble bar
    Morse 4/50
    Morse 11/50
    Morse 27/50
    Morse 46/50
    Y2D Dark Lord - 1st run
    Y2D De-Purple
    Morse 1999 Blueburst
    Morse PDN Neptune Blue with regular neck
    Morse PDN Neptune Blue with roasted neck and custom pick-guard
    Petrucci BFR Solar Flare
    SBMM JP60D
    Albert Lee Sky Blue

    What's missing from the pic? The True Gold! Long story short, I was contacted by EBMM that Steve would like to have the original one back - and can't say "no" to my hero, right? - so got it back to him and there's an identical one just being completed in manufacturing now.

    Hope everybody enjoyed the show - am always on the lookout to add more to the family!

    No way do I have more than his-Steveness - but I do *love* every one that I have!

    Aaaaah, you're the guy who bought that gold Morse. Ya know I never told you, but I saw that ad when it was still live and was considering it but just didn't pull the trigger. Good for you I didn't, or it would be MY "balls to the walls". hahahahahaha

    I'd just say "hey, tell him to come to my house and I'll give it to him personally".

    Impressive collection, BTW.

    insane, Kevin!
    Although it´s not EBMM-related I´d love to see a close up of the DiMarzio and the Guilds.
    This pic... I can´t believe... :-)
