About the original Yngwie Stratocaster
The Yngwie Stratocaster is a replica of the guitar used by Swedish heavy metal guitarist Yngwie J. Malmsteen, made by Fender in 1971. It is a top seller guitar modeled after Malmsteen's favorite Fender guitar. Originally with two DiMarzio YJM single-coil pickups (neck/middle) paired with a DiMarzio HS-3 Stack humbucking pickup (bridge), this Fender Artist signature guitar is most famous for its scalloped fingerboard with deeper scalloping and brass nut, bullet truss rod nut. Just as Yngwie Malmsteen put in the live at the Agora Stage of the Musikmesse at 19.00 hrs on Friday, 14 March 2008, "The Fender strat is the most revolutionary instrument of the 20th century. My additions are scalloped fret board DiMarzio pickups and brass nut."
The Yngwie Stratocaster was so popular that the Fender Custom Shop released the Yngwie Malmsteen "Play Loud" Stratocaster on November 11, 2008, , a painstaking copy of Yngwie's battered 1971 Strat.
Yngwie Johan Malmsteen , known as Yngwie, was born on 30 June 1963, in Lars Johan Yngve Lannerbäck. Yngwie is a Swedish guitarist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and bandleader. Malmsteen became known for his neo-classical playing style in heavy metal. Malmsteen created his first band "Track on Earth" at the age of 10, consisting of himself and a friend from school on drums. Malmsteen released his first solo album Rising Force in 1984 and won the Guitar Player Magazine's award for Best Rock Album and was nominated for a Grammy for 'Best Rock Instrumental', achieving No. 60 on the Billboard album chart.Malmsteen has been a longtime user of Fender Stratocasters and his most famous Stratocaster is his 1972 blonde Strat, nicknamed "The Duck" because of its yellow finish and the Donald Duck stickers on the headstock. An alternative nickname for this guitar is "Play Loud" due to a sticker on the upper horn of the guitar. Fender made 100 replica copies of this guitar and marketed it as the "Play Loud Guitar".
About our custom made Yngwie Stratocaster
