    Oh are you going to mod one?
    I did something similar to my SUB1, which has specs similar to the Morse (except the Vintage Trem) >>>link in signature

    Ya, I know it seems goofy when the the stock guitar has so many combos, but I have several of these and I wanted to do something different with this one. Im gonna use Area 67's in the neck and middle and I'm undecided on the bridge pickup. I use the hell outta the single coils on my others so it seemed logical to mod one to be kinda stripped down. It's gonna have a 3 way that runs neck-bridge&neck-bridge with the add/solo switch for the middle. I know it seems kinda dumb but after playing the Morse guitars for awhile it's kind rubbed off on me to try different switching. I am undecided on the slot for the add bridge location so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears..........

    Wow!

    One of my favorite SSS sounds is the bridge and middle in series.

    Gives a great rock sound!

    That would be a great feature for a Morse.

    I have everything I need except for the pickups. My plan is to leave the stock pickguard untouched so I can drop it back in if I don't like the results. I'm pretty sure it will be great though

    Sorry to bump my own thread with nothing to show yet. I had a hishap. The pickguard was incorrectly cut and I just got the new one today. Looks like it'll be fine. I have to order the pickups yet, but I iwll post picks when I'm done.
    Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you.

    NOw, I just have to decide what colour pickup covers to use. I want the blue ones, but I know there is no way that Dimarzio blue will match. It's looking like I beeter stick with black or white. Wadda you guys think?

    I'm sorry but any true Steve Morse guitar should be an S-S-S-S-(S) configuration.

    Ta daaaaaaaaaaah!

    Ok, here it is.....Hopefully I figured out how to post a picture (again).

    I put an Area 61 in the bridge along with 2 Area 58's. Blue Dimarzio covers. This wiring may seem kinda dumbed down because we know how versatile the Morse is, but I wanted to do something different because I have a few of them. I wired it so that that the 3 way selector functions as follows: Position 1 Bridge. Position 2 Bridge and Neck. Position 3 Neck. The "add/solo" middle switch works like it normally would in a Morse. So, essentially it's wired like a T style guitar with an add/solo option for the middle. Kinda neat and......no hum!
