Ernie Ball Petrucci to be Replaced by a Steve Morse Y2D

Well, I tried to like the EBMM JP but I just couldn't ever get the trem to perform the way I wanted/expected it to. Seems like most people get those trems to work really well, but on this guitar it simply doesn't. The strings keep binding at the saddles and I just couldn't figure out how to fix it. Tried lube, replaced the saddles with GraphTechs, then went back to the old ones... nothing worked. So, it's gone! :)

I have a lovely Ibanez JPM 100 that is just as good (if not better) tone-wise and playability-wise... and that tremolo stays in tune! ;)

The Morse should be here sometime in October or November. It's a De-Purple burst with a Floyd. I'll be keeping the JP until the Morse gets here, at which point I'll be trading in the JP. Can't wait 'till it gets here!
