Built to the Specifications of a Master Guitarist
The SMY2D celebrates the 20th anniversary of guitarist extraordinaire Steve Morse as a Music Man signature artist. Combining the elegance of figured maple with the distinctive voice of poplar and custom Dimarzio pickups, the Steve Morse Y2D Standard delivers the exceptional tone and playability one would expect of such a high-caliber solidbody electric guitar — one that retains the unique signature elements Mr. Morse has relied upon throughout his stellar career.
Amazing tonal dexterity
Just like Steve Morse, the Music Man SMY2D is ready to cover rock, country, jazz, funk, and virtually anything else. Three DiMarzio pickups — two humbuckers and a single-coil — are the key to the Y2D’s incredible tonal versatility. You’ll find premium tonewoods and sleek design throughout, further proof you’re playing a top-quality pro instrument. For a highly playable guitar that can deliver the tone you need for any gig or session, the Music Man Steve Morse Y2D Standard delivers.
And speaking of delivery, when you get your SMY2D from Sweetwater, you’ll get a guitar that’s better then factory-fresh, thanks to our 55-point Evaluation, during which our guitar techs check the hardware, test the electronics, and optimize the action and intonation.
Steve Morse and Music Man go hand in hand
Steve Morse has been one of Music Man’s longest-running endorsers; he still plays a prototype of his first signature Music Man model. The Steve Morse Y2D signature guitar isn’t just an homage to an amazing guitarist, it’s a premium instrument that’s made to exceed the expectations of professional players. Get your hands on the Steve Morse Y2D, and you’ll know that it’s ready to perform.
Three DiMarzio pickups deliver iconic tone
Steve Morse prefers DiMarzio pickups to supply his wide tonal palette, and you’ll find three of them on the Music Man Steve Morse Y2D. You’ll notice the single-coil pickup sits right next to the bridge humbucker, for even more bite and growl than you’d normally get in the middle position.
It’s easy to keep a Music Man guitar in top playing condition
Music Man guitars like the Steve Morse Y2D sport their innovative truss rod adjustment wheel, which makes it easy to fine-tune the neck. Just take anything small like an allen wrench, nail, small screwdriver, etc., and poke it into the truss rod adjustment wheel. Turn the wheel a bit at a time until your neck feels just right, and your Steve Morse Y2D will be ready to rock. You won’t have to do it often, but this innovative feature just goes to show you that Music Man instruments are made for hard-working and hard-playing musicians.
