Thread: Jaw-dropping Tahitian Quilt Morse

    Are these Dimarzios? I thought these were MM pickups. Which might explain the lack of wires where the coils connect.

    Best bet is to contact MM directly. This isn't a standard model, and there's not a lot of info out there about it.

    Here's the description from Pete's website:

    This Steve Morse model features an HH pickup configuration with newly designed Music Man humbuckers & 250k pots, a larger profile roasted maple neck with an ultra-light satin poly finish, rosewood fretboard with stainless steel frets, and a reverse headstock. The body is gloss African mahogany with upgraded quilt maple top in Tahitian Blue finish. Limited to 69 pieces worldwide, these guitars include an autographed backplate and a numbered certificate of authenticity.

    What a stunning beauty!
    Congrats to the future owner!

    guertzi - thanks for the copy/paste above!

    I was originally a little scared when I saw that it had an "ultra-light satin-poly finish" on the neck - but it bears a STRONG resemblance to oil/wax because it's so thin. I think they just waved the closed can of poly over the neck and called it good - which is what I wanted!

    Yup - african mahogany body - WHOO HOO!!!!

    There were 70 of the first run Dark Lords - maybe they started with that number and a bug got in the finish of one?

    It means that dealers (worldwide) ordered a combined total of 69 pieces for this BFR Morse, just like there were 74 of the Fuchsia Sparkle Majesty models ordered. In this series of BFR instruments offered at NAMM 2017 Ernie Ball is only building the quantity that get ordered (unlike some of the other runs promoted as a certain number of pieces, such as the NOMAC guitar)
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    My understanding is that all the BFRs in the current series were made in the quantity that was ordered during the limited order window (which was during winter NAMM), so that just means that eligible dealers ordered that many of that model. Iím sure Pete will clarify if thatís incorrect, but I think thatís the case.

    Hey guys,

    The pickups in the Morse BFR HH are Dimarzio and the Pots are 250k. We tried a couple of different versions before going with this configuration.

    Sorry for any confusion.

    Thanks for clearing that up!

    Hi

    Thanks for the confirmation

    Can you tell us more about the pickups ? Are they 4 conductors (for coil splitting) ? And from a specs and tonal perspective how to they differ from the regular DM Morse model ?

    Many thanks in advance for your answer

    After buying a Steve Morse blue / purple "quilt" Y2D (with a Floyd Rose) at the London International Guitar Show on Sunday last, I had a look at the EBMM website and spotted this Steve Morse Tahitian Blue and almost had an instant wardrobe malfunction Even my wife commented on how gorgeous it is and she has zero interest in guitars.

    I've started guitar lessons recently after 40+ years of being able to do little more than strum a few chords and I'm building up a bit of a guitar collection. The MM Steve Morse I bought is beautiful - I've always wanted one since seeing Steve Morse use one in the time he's played with Deep Purple and Flying Colors. I've no idea how the Tahitian Blue will play but it's the most stunning guitar finish I've ever seen. IMO, whoever designed it deserves a medal for services to guitar aesthetics....
