Re: morris hurricane

I just bought an equinox 2 from craigs list. It is sweet. It has a shape similar to a strat, is all black, has an humbucker at the bridge and single coil at the neck, an original tremolo, and Gotoh tuners. It had the original hard case, a little ruffed up, but workable. Like I said sweet. I think these will have some collector value if they are in good shape. We'll see.

Re: morris hurricane

It's a wonderful guitar to mod. But its stock stuff is good too. It's really easy to turn that guitar into your own. I have an equinox 1. And it's a dream.

Re: morris hurricane equinox-3

Ya I just got this Hurricane Equinox-3.
I first saw it and it looked kinda cheap.
WhammyBar sucks. Bright red. 3 Morris pickups.
I wish I could find more info about this.
I have the case too.

Re: morris hurricane

I pulled a Hurricane by Morris (Les Paul) out of my cupboard fitted new pickups and love it. Don't know much about the company though (if they are the same).

Re: morris hurricane

I have the sunburst Les Paul copy too. I know the hurricane by Morris was selling 30ish years ago because thats when the guitar was bought initialy. It plays alot better than the more modern epiphone copies and is also much better built, you can tell that just from the weight difference in the two models. I managed to get the guitar for £100 of a friend and have lowered the strings for that nice "metal" feel, the guitar is versatile, looks great and plays like a dream. Bargain!

Re: morris hurricane

i have just bought (secondhand) a morris hurricane really cheap.. same deal, nobody seems to know anything about them, but all over the web ppl who own them rave about them... this one looks, feels, plays, sounds fantastic. I showed it to a friend who has strats, jacksons, gibson and he is highly critical of "cheap" guitars. He was mighty dubious at first, but once he started playing it I couldn't get it away from him! His words: "man this is a ball-tearer of a guitar!" I have been to morris website (requires translation from japanese) but there is bugger all info there either. Someone somewhere must know more!

Re: morris hurricane

:This is crazy! It seems everyone who has one of these loves it - inlcuding me. I found a Morris model MD-505 and it is a wonderful instrument. I can't find any info however. Anybody suggest where to find out about these guitars please help!
