Thread: Belated NGD - Morse Dark Lord in Tahitian Blue

  1. #16

    That’s probably my favorite out of all of the Anniversary models. If I could ever design my own signature model I would take that exact model, lose the pickguard and carve a forearm contour.

    A forearm contour would be nice, like the very comfortable Luke, but I am an Axis Man so I am used to a flat top. The beefy neck with reverse headstock is the real selling point for me.

    The Dark Lord Morse is a really great guitar. I've played my black one so much that I'm beginning to roll the edges of the fretboard. My eldest son plays that one a lot, too so I can't take all the credit. He loves the tone of the Dark Lord.

    My youngest son is the bass player and they are both on college Spring Break. After they return from skiing in Maine I will show him my new StingRay 5. He is going to love it. You will all love it, too. It will be the focal point of my next NBD thread. I just got it yesterday and it is amazing. Here is a teaser shot:

    That is awesome, Bryan! How would you characterize the tone of the Tahitian Blue pickups? I got to play one briefly last summer in a store, but only unplugged. Loved the neck...

    I'm looking at your pics of it, and kinda wondering to myself if you've kept the clings on the pickup covers to protect them until you sell it to me one day? (A fella can dream!)

    Congrats on the new axe, and I'm looking forward to your upcoming NGx posts.

    Thank you very much!

    I welcome the diversion because I am excited to tell you about how awesome my keyboard stand is. Yup, you read that right. It's a keyboard stand and it holds up to 375 pounds! In fact, the other guitarist in my band just bought one because he liked mine so much.

    It is very sturdy and it disassembles like a transformer into a rectangle. It is $73. I love mine. My amp is very secure up there. I put rubber along the rails so my amp just squats right down onto it and is secure.

    Thank you! I removed the plastic protection.

    I have to remember how to play around 70 cover songs, so I started video recording myself so that in case I draw a blank, I can quickly watch myself playing the song. If you private message me your email I will send you a video of the Tahitian Blue playing Shipping Up to Boston, and another of the black one playing Talk Dirty to Me.

    Bryan, love the Tahitian Blue Morse, the images were blocked at home. I've seen a few of those online as well and there is one about an hour from me, I've been interested in going and checking it out. The reverse head stock again is just sooo fitting.

    Great guitars!!

    Those are some great looking (and I'm sure sounding) guitars. I've never seen one in the wild. Would be interested in seeing how the neck feels compared to the Axis, which is all I play any more except for GC every now and then.

    That's a great idea!!! I really don't care for a cabinet directly on the floor and sound going right to the legs - I find it causes me to play harder or turn up louder. These days I have opted more for a combo and have an ampwedge to lean it a little. I had purchased a stand (can't recall who made it) that was specifically for a head and cabinet, but it kinda looked like a "transformer" toy and was difficult to pack and carry.

    Thanks for the reply !! And congrats on a killer guitar again!!!!

    Yeah Mike, I raised it so I can hear myself on stage without turning up as loud. I love it up there.

    They have a brand new and a used Tahitian Blue at Guitar Center. The used one is $2300.

    Bryan, ooooohhhhh yah man, once I got home, I was originally looking at them at and work and we have a wicked firewall and lots of protocols in place.

    They both are awesome been seeing the blue ones around a lot. Had eyed the one Pete/You have, but the newer ones are way out of my price range. Plus I've got 4 that don't get nearly enough attention.
