    It's one that I bought used. I looked up the year once but I can't recall it now. It's a 6 screw neck so it's the original style. I assume the switches are all original but don't know that for...

    If that's Albert's work, he's got some talent. Lukather is pretty good too. Morse is not as inventive or skilled but very interesting way to highlight the guitar.

    I wish my neck had a little more bow when fully loosened. It's pretty straight like the OP's guitar. I've tried to help it a little, pressing down in the middle. I also went to 10 gauge strings...

    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...

    Help: Replacement nut for original style Morse

  19. How many people work on the Ernie Ball production line?

    I took the neck off my 1990 Morse over the weekend. Decided to experiment with a little shim for a little more break angle over the bridge. When I did it, I was not totally surprised to find the...
