I own a 1994 Floyd rose version. Bottom line up front it is a great guitar. Very we'll made and very versatile. You can play any style but best suited for classic rock, blues and country. Although my guitar is 19 years old it looks and plays like new. The quality it top drawer.

I am a huge morse, blackmore and deep purple fan! When morse joined purple I had to get this guitar. I play it through a 5150 half stack, ampeg GVT52. Carvin V3, and 100w Carvin MTS HALF STACK. All my amps are tube. The guitar delivers great tone! Playability is superb. It is comfortable to play. Matches up well against other top tier guitars.

Only negative is the endless pickup configurations are confusing.

Still, recommended!

After reading all these great reviews I really was expecting to be absolutely blown away by this guitar. It does look great (in blueburst finish), it does feel very well made, and it does have great tone with lots of versatility. It's just that I can't get comfortable playing it. It feels sort of like playing a plank, it does not feel snug, even though it is a smallish guitar. The neck is nice, but somehow this does not translate into fast and fluid runs. It feels short scale, and I can't lower the action to where I like it. So, Instead of playing it and making it my #1 guitar I find myself prefering to look at it on the wall, together with the rest of my collection. I may come around to it eventually once I have played it enough, but right now it is far from being one of my go-to guitars

        This is my second music man ,my first is a JP 6 .
        The Quality of these guitars is amazing and I beleave one of the best values on the market . I also have a PRS custom 24 and , SG ,and American Deluxe Strat . I can't decide which I like the best . I seem to be playing the musicman the most and I love that they are made in the USA . Makes me proud of our american artisans. AND THEY ARE ART my one problem not a complaint ,is that I can't find a store that caries RPS singel strings

        one of the more versatile guitars!

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Steve Morse Signature Model Electric Guitar:

        If you want to take just one guitar to you gig, take this one and you'll play everything without changing guitars
        it's not easy to learn the configurations in this guitars, but once you get the hang of it, you can play any genre you want, from Hendrix to Metallica. you have both of the best worlds, a strat and a les paul in a single guitar... but you have to learn it
        I was amazed at the quality, Music Man makes the best guitars around with the best qualities. once i bought this guitar, two months later i bought an albert lee, and now i'm becoming in a Music Man fan, probably buy a JP6
        this is probable one of the less expensive music man guitars, and i don't know why with so many features... definitely a steal!! i'll probably will change the pickguard to white pearl. but i'll leave the rest as it is

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Steve Morse Signature Model Electric Guitar:

        I played the Music Man guitars for the first time at NAMM this year and you know you have hit on something special when out of all the guitar manufacturers at NAMM (probably over 100) & all of the respective guitars in their line-ups (well over 1000) the Music Man guitars really made the biggest impression on me. Just to clarify, before going to NAMM this year, I wouldn't have even given Music Man guitars a second thought. Now I WILL own one.
        Probably the best thing about this guitar is that it's features are so thoughtfully put together that it creates a very versatile instrument. Obviously the very flexible pickup array is at the core of the feature set. I found that in all positions, the guitar sounded as you would wish it to sound with very little compromise.
        I played this guitar for about 30 minutes at the NAMM show this year, but I just could not put it down. It felt really good. I couldn't stop thinking about how much I liked the neck and when I got home looked online and saw how they use an oil and wax finish on their necks. All I can say is I really liked the feel of the neck. From what I could tell, the guitar was a quality instrument (but we were at namm - so for sure they have their best out)
        Considering you get 2 absolutely signature sounds (strat and les) nailed - then add on top of that all the other p-up combos, this guitar is actually a pretty good value. To my mind, no other manufacturer has put this p-up combo together in a package that works this well.

        Steve Morse Signature Model - standard, Blueburst

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Steve Morse Signature Model Electric Guitar:

        Nice heal, neck is very comfortable, pick-up switching is unique - designed to be changed on the fly - use your hands to change sounds instead of always tap dancing on pedals
        Ernie Ball Music Man is meticulous regarding attention to detail regarding neck fit, fret finish, set-up (right from the factory). This machine was not put together by machines.
        Versatile guitar - if you need to go from single coil spank to humbucker leads to somewhere inbetween for the chorus - this is it. You don't use pedal to try to make a strat sound like a les paul for a few bars. Suprisingly nice jazz tone - the neck pick-up is warm, but not 'thumpy' - mixes well with the other pick-ups - which is rather rare I think.

        This is my second Music Man guitar (Luke is the other). I got the Morse because I'm a fan and for the versatility. It does it all and does it well. Fast neck, great pickups and built like a tank! I will own this one till it comes apart! Buy one, you'll love it!

        I bought this guitar after having another 4 "balls" (silhouettes and luke II)but this is definitely the best guitar I ever played, and I've played lot. Every sound is great no sound spots, excellent workmanship, fast neck; great price too.

        from Arizona

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Steve Morse Signature Model Electric Guitar:

        I am totally blown away by the neck on this guitar. The neck is super fast and comfortable. The range of tones is extreme, and you really can hear Steve when you play it.The only draw back on this guitar is it is not very friendly on the right forearm. It has a boxy feel to it.I wish they had taken the time to carve out the backside such as is done with a Strat. I am having a difficult time finding where this guitar belongs on my body.But, this is one nice, solid, well built guitar.
