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.

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
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.
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!!!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
this guitar can pretty much do it all. i heard people say that the only thing possible to play on this guitar is shred, but i played blues and classical just as well. the scalloped frets take a while to get used to but still rock. best of all, it mixes the tones of a strat and a les paul and that is a dream come true. buy it right now if you can afford it.
I bought this guitar about a week ago and I totally love it. It stays in tune and the scalloped frets are amazing. Since I've bought it I have had trouble puting it down... which leads me to the only draw back. After playing this guitar for any amount of time good luck playing a guitar with a regular neck!
I own two of these and consider myself blessed by God to have them. In my opinion there is not a better guitar for playing blues out there. I am 44 years old and have been playing since I was 15. I have never played a guitar that has given me such control and power over bends and vibrato. This is why Yngwie plays the scalloped neck. The Scallops will not make you play faster or slower. I use Fender Super Bullet 10 gauge strings. Yngwie used 10's back in his early days as well. I have both a Sonic blue/maple and a Candy Apple red/rosewood. The red/rosewood does not have the world's tightest neck pocket, but it still is a top notch guitar. This one also has deeper scallops than the blue/maple one. These guitars can do anything you would expect a great strat to do, and do it better than others. The pick ups are low output and preserve the clarity of the original signal. They are hum canceling and have the best srat tones that I have ever heard. You will need to use an overdrive pedal like Yngwie's DOD YJM 308 or an Ibanez TS9 to boost the siganal if you you really want to rock. I play at my church which is a Calvary Chapel in the San Diego area. The music we play ranges from hymns to rock that borders on heavy metal at times. My two Malmsteens are the only electric guitars that I use, or want to use. I often thank Jesus Christ for blessing me with these guitars. I plan to use both of them to worship Him for the rest of my life. The Malmsteens are built like a tank and stay in tune. They are by no means cheap, but they are worth every penny.
