Dates of manufacture:
The Music Man Steve Morse Y2D guitar was introduced in 2005 to mark the 20 year anniversary of the Music Man Steve Morse signature guitar (first created in 1985). The Steve Morse Y2D features a poplar body with maple top in flame or quilt, cream binding and an opaque black finish on the back and sides of the body.
The Y2D has three Di-Marzio pickups in H-S-H configuration (one single coil fewer than the original Steve Morse model) with a new custom wound single coil pickup in the middle position. A 2-way toggle and 3-way lever switch controls various pickup selection options.
Pickups are (from neck to bridge):
- Humbucking - DP-205 Morse Signature;
- Single coil - Proprietary custom wound;
- Humbucking - DP-200 Morse Signature
Another feature allows guitarists to alter the 3-way lever through the control cavity on the back. A jumper connection can be manipulated without soldering to change the pickup sequence from bridge, neck, and middle to the more traditional pickup sequence bridge, middle, and neck.
The Y2D comes in three translucent finish options; Purple Sunset, De-Purple Burst and Tobacco Sunburst. To accent the overall appearance, this instrument has a clear pickguard to show its grain. A slimmer neck profile is standard issue, recreated from Steve Morse's number one stage guitar from 1985.
The Y2D comes with tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece as standard or with a Floyd Rose tremolo (costing around $200 extra).
