The guitarist details the signature Ernie Ball Music Man guitars, Engl amps, and specialized effects he uses on the road.

Morse has a boat full of signature axes, but it all started with the Ernie Ball Music Man that he’s been playing since he designed it in 1986—this guitar remains his No. 1 favorite guitar of all time.
