    Steve Morse y2d ??

    Hi
    I would like to get a steve morse model. Initially I focused on the traditional model (the 4 pick ups one) but in these days I have found a good deal for one second hand y2d (euro 900 brand new....). Should I go for it? Thanks

    Is there a huge tonal difference compared to the standard version? I know it misses the slanted single coil....

    Imo, the loss of the neck single coil isn't a huge issue. The Y2D kills

    900€ brand new condition is too good to be true. Seriously, that's a factor of two too low. I'd be cautious.

    François, you out there? Whaddya think?

    900 € for a Y2D in Europe !!!!

    Deal of the century ! Or something is fishy ...
    Be cautious

    I paid 1200 € for my AL and it was a really a great deal.
    Here in France, the price for a second hand Y2D is 1400 € or more.

    Steve has gone on record saying he basically doesn't use that pickup during live performance, and will generally only use it in the studio when he has a particular itch for that slanted single coil sound, which he doesn't get often. Y2Ds are excellent guitars, you'll be happy with either type of Morse.

    To me, that neck single coil opens up a lot of stratty sounds by itself and in combination with the other pickups. Plus I have to say I enjoy the switching on the original. Y2d is fine but I think it's worth it to wait for the original if this is your first or only Morse.

    The reason of such low price is because the guy is a bass player who wanted to play also guitar and bought such a beauty....now he understands guitar is not for him and wants to cash it to get a new bass....in the price he will bring me the guitar to my home on Saturday (well not really at home but not far from where I live)....therefore I can check it personally...in the past I had an original morse (4 pu) with floyd rose and I really liked it. I was obliged to sell it because of some problems. But I promised to myself sooner or later I would have got another one....now this good deal arose and I am really tempted....

    My Y2D is a beast, really. I have a LII (my fav by far), and a JP7 (which is a dream to play), but the Y2D have something that I can't explain, and I really love to play on. And the look, omg, quilted maple top, purple sunset, best combo.
    No doubt that 900€ is THE deal. Check the guitar if there is no problem.
