  • Steve Morse's Frankenstein Tele

    Does anybody know of any sites with good info on Steve Morse's old Frankenstein Tele Strat? I'd like to see a good close-up, find out the pickup configuration, the switching configuration, etc...

    Stevemorse.com has minimal info, and Tele Modders has a dead link to the guitar. I also did a google search but didn't find much.

      Steve's Tele is quite the modded monster. I'll go check that dead link. Sorry bro. Thanks for the links kmc.

        I dont think he has used it in years though, like since the early 80s. His Music Man is an amazing instrument.

              It's funny you mentioned it, but I was just staring at an old LP
              of Steve Morse's Dixie Dregs, where he's holding that guitar and wearing a sleeveless purple T shirt. Does Steve Morse have the worst fashion sense, or what!? LOL

              I wish I remembered all the pickups, but he has about 4 on that guitar. Gibson, DiMarzio hums, and some Fender and a hotrails or something. Crazy. He retired that guitar because it had been refretted about 10 times. His favorite amps are a
              Marshall Jubilee 2550, 5150, and Ampeg V-4. I've never seen him live, but would like to.

                Lately live, with Deep Purple, he is using a 5150...his tone is great...take a listen to any of the Deep Purple albums of the last 7 years or so.

                    OK, I'm at home now, so I actually have that vinyl album of
                    Steve Morse holding that guitar back in 1984.
                    It's Steve Morse...The Introduction.

                    The pickups are....What looks like a double cream Duncan in the bridge, a lipstick tele single of some sort right next to the cream bridge, a slanted aged white Strat pickup, then a nickel covered
                    Gibson humbucker turned backwards for his neck pickup.
                    4 Total. He has a three way steel pickup selector and all the
                    rest of his controls are out of the picture. The pickguard is a black homemade one that doesn't look like any stock Tele guard.

                    That's the old, natural finished Tele body with a early 70's strat neck. Steve Morse with the purple cutoff T Shirt on the front of his album...The Introduction from 1984
