Overview

The Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster has been updated to be more like his current number-one Fender! Updates include a White /Black/White pickguard, bullet truss rod nut and machine screw neck mounting! This neck mounting method provides a better connection and overall tone transfer to the guitar body.

Like the original Yngwie Strat, this amazing axe features a solid alder body, modern "C" shape maple neck, and Yngwie's signature scalloped maple fretboard with Dunlop 6000 Super-Jumbo frets for a playing experience as fast as you are!

The pickups are all Yngwie tone, too! All three pickups are Seymour Duncan YJM Fury . Switch pickups with a 3-position blade and make it wail with the American Vintage Synchronized Tremolo bridge. The brass nut provides a bright sound you can't get any other way. Made in Fender's Corona, California factory. Includes case.

Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Just like the headline says, overall quality instrument, just a terrible setup. This is what I would refer to as a Friday guitar. Must have hit the bench at 2pm, rushed through QC and setup. 1st, the G string nut slot had a ridge in it, so the first time I went to bend the G string I felt and heard the string make a loud "ting" at the nut when either bending up or down. 2nd, the bridge saddles were not set to the proper radius and the intonation was way off, not even close. 3rd, the neck was so offset in the neck pocket because the pick guard had an overhang on the upper bout, pushing the neck down that the low E string kept falling off the edge of the neck when playing. I personally fixed all the problems, but this would be a big issue for someone with no experience at these things. Fender and GC, I would expect a little more attention to detail. Well, Fender yes, GC, please? But these days its all about getting product out the door and meeting sales quotas. I would still recommend this guitar, just plan on possibly spending some time, and or money on top of the purchase price, on getting a proper setup.

Great Guitar with a few mods!

Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I have to admit that straight out of the shipping carton the quality of this build stands out. I was very impressed with all of the fine details being rock solid. With that said...I replace the trem on all of my Yngwie Signature Stratocaster's with Callaham vintage narrow trems...this will solve the problem of the high E flopping off the fretboard it also allows for a great string spacing that improves speed. I love the sound of the Fury's over the DiMarzios all day long. Much better choice in pups. I however again...swap out the bridge pup with the JB Jr. or EMG S Active single coil. Just a preference for my style of playing and they sound clearer through vintage plexi's and JCM800's. Thought about swapping out tuners on all of my Yngwie's but, never have a problem staying in tune so, why fix it if it ain't broke. I would buy another in a heartbeat...GREAT GUITAR!

YJM Scalloped god

By Mike Zielinski

from foxlake il

Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

i have the vintage with the maple neck which i suggest is the only way to go. the wood itself is just of amazing quality and the tone is super smooth when playing blues and will knock your front teeth out when playing rock. it allows for great articulation because of the low output pick ups. these pick ups handle tons of overdrive and still maintain that clarity this is about the 32 guitar ive owned at some point and i sold all ten of my old guitars to buy this one and was not disappointed at all, i even am usually a gibson guy and decided to go with this over any 1500 dollar gibson i could find

Beautiful. Absolutely Beautiful.

By Kelsey

from Winslow, Illinois

Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing. Simply put. My uncle has this guitar and I just recently played it in a gig w/ his band. This guitar gives you so much control. The scalloped frets are my favorite feature on this guitar because they make it so easy to bend and I always know where I'm at on it. This guitar is hands down one of the best guitars I've ever played in my life. If you don't have the money for the Malmsteen, then I would suggest the Arctic White Squier Bullet. This is one hell of a guitar. You must have this in your arsenal.

ultimate stratocaster

By shredding eddie

from los angeles, california

Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

this guitar is the greatest of great sounding guitars of all time from the pickups, tone, and switch yngwie wouldn't just have a signature guitar for nothing you know it's perfect for shredding (no surprise) and great for other genres and i also love the fretboard it is so smooth it might take a while to get used to but it'll be worth it also perfect for dive bombs and all i can say about yngwie's signature strat is just pure perfection!!!!

Well worth it!!!

By Mr. Jinx

from Michigan

Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I bought this strat sight unseen. Never played a scalloped neck either. Now cut to the chase. Quality is very high, action was great out of the box. While Yngwie shreds don't expect this guitar to an ultra low action with a flat fretboard like Ibanez or Jacksons. Only issue (which I believe is my playing) is slipping off the fret on the high E string sometimes. I don't know why people make such a big deal out of a scalloped neck. Much to my surprise it took no time getting used too. The pups are not high output so if you're looking for a heavy sound you'll need a preamp or pedals to achieve that tone. But for me, flick that switch into the neck setting and let this baby sing. If you got the cash this is a great investment.

Great guitar for many styles

By Guitaristofmanystyles

from johnstown, ny

Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I play many forms of music from jazz and blues to rock and metal. I own and play many brands from Ibanez to Fender and even Laguna and Ovation guitars. The Yngwie Strat is my first and only scalloped fret guitar and I fell in love with it instantly. This is the very top of the line in terms of quality and craftsmanship that I have ever played. It was not hard at all to get used to the scallops. In fact I was playing all my trademark licks and runs on in within the first five minutes of playing it. It is very easy to get Yngwie's signature tones with a good distortion unit and it sounds and plays great on jazz, blues, rock etc. Two thumbs UP!

malmsteen strat

By Bruce Sokolovic

from New York, NY

Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I own the vintage white/maple combo, and this guitar relates most to the "strat" sound of any strat I've ever played. BLUES ARE A MUST on this guitar! Nice warm, sweet tone for days. Scallops take some getting used to, but are a nice change to a regular neck from time to time. This neck profile is VERY comfortable. Great guitar.

Top of the line Fender

By John

from Oceanside, NY

Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

When I walked into my music store, I noticed a Stratocaster that had a scalloped neck. I had always been curious about Scalloped necks. After taking it down, I plugged it into one of the JVM stacks that was there. Turning the drive and the delay up, I began to play and let me just say, I could not put this one down. Everything about this guitar including the neck and the pickups was amazing. The only slight problem with players new to scalloped necks is that you have to use a very light touch or else you will go sharp. This is a definite buy.
