The Steve Morse model has been one of the most popular Music Man models over the last few years, with its super Strat approach and slick design, it's a real winner. This Ball Family Reserve model is deliciously spec'd, produced in limited numbers, the Dark Lord Special is a team effort between Ernie Ball, Steve Morse and Joe Bonamassa.
The Poplar body has a sweet flame maple top and is finished in a cool Black Burst; this finish highlights the sweet grain underneath and features a clear pickguard for even more visibility. Rocking a Steve Morse custom bridge, this guitar has mega sustain and a low action.
The roasted Flame Maple neck has the traditional hand oiled and waxed Music Man finish for a smooth satin feel. Joe Bonamassa, a fan of the original Morse model, requested a slightly thicker neck profile and this one is a beaut. It's fast, precise and has great response. With a rosewood fingerboard, the Dark Lord features the BFR inlay at the 12th fret and a super cool reverse headstock.
2 Custom Steve Morse humbuckers and a custom Di Marzio single coil deliver a huge selection of tones. With crystal clear note definition and outstanding clarity, this guitar sounds as great as it looks!
