The Birth and evolution of Morris S Series Morris Guitar has always challenged the industry by creating new and exciting guitars. In 2001 they took on a new challenge and introduced the S Series- “The Ideal Guitar for Fingerstyle Players”.
At that time, Morris had been conducting extensive market research in the US by attending guitar contests and meeting with some of the top luthiers. They came to the conclusion that we needed to develop a guitar for fingerstyle players. They analyzed various fingerstyle playing styles and also received much valuable advice from top fingerstyle players, in order to develop this special guitar. In order to achieve the highest quality, they also came up with two production methods: “Luthier Made” which is built by one master luthier from beginning to end, and “Hand Made” which is built by a small group of experienced craftsmen, specializing in specific areas of the guitar making process.
When the S Series was first introduced 2001, Morris offered 8 selected models, which combined 2 body styles (Grand Auditorium and Classical Auditorium), 2 Cutaway designs (Venetian and Florentine), 2 top materials (Spruce and American Cedar) and 2 sides & back materials (Rosewood and Mahogany). In 2003 the “Round Back” was introduced and bracings were also improved. Morris was then able to offer 12 improved models in the catalog. In addition a smaller body SS Model and a semi-jumbo body SJ Model were added, now totalling16 different models in S Series.
