Yngwie Malmsteen may divide opinion with regard to his outspoken views and elaborate attire, but there's no denying that he fully deserves his status as a Rock God! His enigmatic playing style has won over a legion of fans that wish to emulate his sweet arpeggio licks. It is only fitting that he should wield a guitar that matches his lightning fast technique. Fender has created the Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster so that you too can own a guitar that is favoured by the legend himself.
The body is crafted from Alder, a tonewood favoured by Fender due to its medium-weight - making it easy to wield - that produces a strong, clear, full-bodied sound with chunky mids and pounding lows. The highs a sweet without becoming harsh, a must considering the wailing pickup compliment. The body is finished in vintage white - no surprise to Yngwie fans there - and protected by coating of urethane to maintain the pristine paintwork for as long as possible. The top is protected below the strings by a 3-ply white pickguard, perfectly complimenting the finish.
The Maple neck and fingerboard combination offers excellent note articulation, working well with the Alder body to ensure that the entire tonal range heard with the utmost clarity. To aid your super-fast playing, the Maple fingerboard has been scalloped to make it incredibly easy to navigate. Dunlop 6000 jumbo fret wire to work alongside the scalloping to create a natural playing-feel.
The three pickup compliment is composed of specially designed Seymour Duncan STK-S10N YJM Fury pickups in the neck and middle positions, and the Seymour Duncan STK-S10B YJM Fury pickup in the bridge position. Whether you're a shredder, a neo-classical wizard, a metaller, a rocker or even a jazz fusion virtuoso, you'll be amazed by just how versatile this setup is. Rather than just deliver wailing lead tones, the YJM Furys produce dense tones that are full of warmth with plenty of bite.
The control setup is incredibly simple with a 3-position pickup selector (Bridge, Middle and Neck), Tone control for the neck pickup, no-load Tone control for middle and bridge pickups, and a Master volume switch. Very simple, yet very effective.
The amazing Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster comes with a vintage tweed case, Yngwie Malmsteen strap and cable, giving you everything you need to get playing straight out of the box.
