Steve Morse - SM-Y2D.
That must be some limited edition - Y2D in trans black finish with quilted maple top is not a common sight.

Yes, “De-” is there because of Deep Purple :) Steve Morse uses Y2D mostly with DP because it has more aggressive rock sound than the regular SM model.
SM-Y2D. De-Purple Burst.
It’s not 100% blue, but it’s more blue than purple ;)
Steve Morse with his one of a kind guitar - SM-Y2D “Blackie”.
He’s an amazing guitarist and a great man. I appreciate not only his enormous playing skills, but also his personality and views. He’s achieved so much and still remain a modest man.
I’ve found a (bad quality:/) video of Joe Satriani playing “Black Night” with Steve Morse (and the rest of Deep Purple, of course;). I was curios how he sounds when he doesn’t have a floyd rose bar under his hand. It does not bother him at all :)
(the real fun starts at 3:00)
