    Anorak question: which guitar did Steve Morse play on the Dregs reunion

    sorry for being that nerdy...
    Anorak question: which guitar did Steve Morse play on the Dregs reunion-anorak-jpg
    screenshot is from here (3:50) The Bash - Dawn of the Dregs - Dixie Dregs Live - YouTube

    I assume that most ...okay... some of us recognized that Steve played not his usual #1. It seemed to be a new blueburst. But looking closer reveals: matte pickguard and.... 6 bolts!

    Is this #2 he got at last years NAMM? (Headstock canīt be seen clearly because of the clip tuner)

    Does anybody know?
    And - why?

    I don’t have inside information on this - but I would bet a shiny new nickel that’s #2. The headstock also matches “the first 50” logo and it’s clealy not #1.

    #2 would certainly be fitting. How interesting.

    I did ask Steve, while hanging with him at Vai Academy, if his old FrankenTele would be making an appearance on the Dregs tour and he said “No, not likely at all.”

    I'd also like to know why. Is this one (let's call it "#2" for now) preferable to #1 with the new neck?

    Got to say that those pictures make Steve look like he is is in agony, is the wrist giving him more trouble in the Dregs format?

    The Dregs put on a great show last night, and there were a ton smiles on the stage. A big thanks to Tommy and Steve, I had the opportunity to chat with them for a few minutes before the show last night.

    Some of the main reasons that Steve is using #2 right now are:
    - Currently prefers the sound of the pickups, as they were made in the same run as #1
    - Prefers the older style bridge with slightly smaller diameter mounting posts
