Still the foremost and most formidable practitioner of the genre, Yngwie Malmsteen practically invented neo-classical shred singlehandedly. The guitar he has always done it with is a Stratocaster, and for those who aspire to Malmsteen's flamboyantly fleet-fingered style, the Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster is modeled after the Swedish metal virtuoso's favorite Strat®, right down to its special pickups and scalloped fingerboard. A distinctively designed model for one of the world's most distinctive Strat masters.
Notable features of this guitar include a Special Refined '60's Shape Neck, Machine Screw Neck Mounting Inserts, Bullet Truss Rod Nut, Scalloped Fingerboard, Modified Body Contours, Brass Nut, Large '60s Styled Headstock, Jumbo Fretwire, Aged Pickup Covers, Aged Plastic Parts, Duncan® STK-S10B YJM Fury pickups, and much much more.
This used Yngwie Malmsteen signature model is virtually unplayed. It ships in the original hardshell case and includes the original case candy and a Fender whammy bar.
