Steve Morse and Ernie Ball Music Man celebrate their 20-year partnership with the introduction of two new signature model guitars.

Morse is undoubtedly one of the premier guitarists of all time. His mastery encompasses classical, country, the pioneering fusion sound he created with his band Dixie Dregs in the early ‘80’s, his stint in Kansas and a long career in the current version of Deep Purple.

Naturally, Morse’s guitar of choice calls for versatility, and these signature models deliver. Watch as he demos his original Signature model in the video below:

The SMY2D is a striking guitar with a Blue Burst Flame finish, figured maple neck, Poplar tone-wood and rosewood fretboard. The custom Dimarzio pickups make this instrument scream when needed. The pickup arrangement is simplified from the standard model’s 4 pickup configuration. A clear pickguard, standard hardtail and chrome hardware round out the specs. Street price is $2999.00.
