I bought this guitar because I wanted a scalloped neck guitar. I am an Ibanez man but I thought I would go with something totally different. The scalloped fretboard, 9.5 neck radius, and single coil pickups surely make this different from my usual. I can only say good things about this guitar. It has a great tone, either clean or distorted. I have read where some think the pickups are not hot enough. The only thing I can respond to this is, do you want to hear great articulate sound, or just a bunch of distorted noise. These pickups sound plenty hot for most musical tastes. I had no problem playing the scalloped fretboard. It most certainly makes bends, vibrato, and pulloffs easier with a lighter touch. If this guitar has any downside, tapping is the most noticable. However, with a little practice on this neck I can tap as usual. I bought the model with a maple fretboard because all of my other guitars are rosewood. This is a beautiful neck. I received this guitar without any flaws or blemishes. I find this guitar a joy to play and recommend it to anyone who can afford one.

I currently play a Highway One strat with the Dimarzio YJM's and HS3 pickups. Love the tone and playability of this guitar so I picked up an Yngwie strat to have the real thing. This is a very cool guitar but I could not get used to the scalloped neck and the frets are HUGE! I found myself going back to my Highway One and feeling so much more comfortable on a regular fingerboard. In addition, the alignment of the strings over the fingerboard were misaligned to the high E string so it slipped off the edge of the fingerboard when using just minor vibrato. This guitar also had a very noticable blemish beneath the finish near the trem. I ended up sending it back. Too wierd switching between scalloped and regular fingerboards and I expected better craftsmanship for an American made guitar at this price. Im sticking with the Highway One strat with the Yngwie Dimarzio pickups...same tone and a much better play.

    Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I bought this for the scalloped neck. Who else has that? I was a bit worried that I may have trouble playing it, but it's not hard to get used to at all. It trains you to have a lighter touch, your fingers never touch the fret board, only the strings. So if you press real hard, it's going to be a bit more like playing a multi string cheese slicer. You only need light pressure, which may be slightly more difficult to maintain across the high e during bar chords. It's easy to lean hard if there's a finger board to push against, but I love it. It's the first Fender I've purchased and I'm hooked.

    Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    This guitar came set up perfectly in everyway
    i have ten other guitars but none are scalloped
    i found the fretboard perfect for my style which is neoclassical rock type playing you will love this guitar if you play with a lighter touch not so good if you are into very heavy rock which reguires aggressive type playing all other styles of music can be covered here with this guitar i would also say this guitar would suit a little bit more of an advanced guitar player not sure if it would suit a beginner because of the light touch involved but i have been wrong before this has become my favorite guitar i love the hollow tone blackmore malmsteen etc great clean sounding guitar and when pickups are overdriven great for smooth shredding outstanding guitar i would buy another in a heartbeat hope this helps a little for interested buyers aloha

    I like this guitar so much. Now that I have the rosewood neck I need the maple fretboard with the same type of action of this guitar. Worth the money.

      Yngwie Stratocaster

      By Guy Downer

      from Phoenix Arizona

      Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      A great guitar!!! and,.. A good investment too!!!
      I have the 2008 (Sonic-Blue) version. I think it's the last model with "Dimarzio's" (YJM-neck & middle) & a (HMS-3 bridge) I think. Anyway,... I love this guitar!! I don't know if the "value" will go down if I put in the new Duncan (YJM Fury's),.. I'd like to know. Keep it original? Or, "up-date" it? It's a tricky guitar to play. (pull-off's) on the high-E, I tend to pull the string off the fret, That makes me think: a. they (the factory) filed to much fret when finishing the neck, or,... b. I'm just to used to playing a guitar with a regular neck, and the fret's are fine!! Either way,.. the guitar is very cool, loud, my action is incredibal!! I use 9's, but 8's,... Ehhh that's a tuffy, 8's seem to be my most favored. Yeah a little thin,.. but with low action it's a little more easyer to play, and "chord." Just don't grip so tight, relax your left hand,.... and, Away you go!!! Hope this helped.

      One of the best strats

      Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I only play strats. I bought this guitar used because I wanted to try the scalloped fretboard and the DiMarzio pickups. I have had it for about 6 months now. At first, I didn't like it. I didn't like the feel of the scalloped fretboard, and the jumbo frets gave a different "ring" vs. the smaller frets I was used to. Tremolo usage caused the guitar to go out of tune. The action could not be lowered to the way I liked it while not "frettin-out" and buzzing with extreme string bends (I like playing hendrix). I was very upset.You may be wondering why I gave it such high marks. The rest of the story goes like this: I threw on some Dean Markeley Malmsteen strings (9-42), put some vaseline under the bridge contact points, put some pencil lead in the nut, adjusted the action so that it did not buzz or "fret-out".This guitar now sounds AMAZING. The neck pickup has that strat "punch" when doing a string bend. the pickups sound sweet (although somewhat low output). The frets still make the "ring" sound weird, but its not a bad sound. The guitar stays in tune perfectly with trem usage. The guitar is made of very high quality materials, in particular the maple neck looks very high quality. The tuners are amazing, they get somewhat "locked in"; you can feel them get stuck once you reach the right frequency in the strings. I believe this guitar will hold value very well, and my grandchildren will be playing this at some point. Great investment, great sound, great guitar, beautiful color, great craftsmanship. I hope fender discontinues these so the value goes up in my guitar!

      Super-STRAT!!

      Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      Very nice Fender super-Stratocaster!! Quality of this Fender guitar is more than apparent. I really like the pickups and they are perfect for metal and suited also to various other genres. Some people claim the pickups are weak. I say.... get a good overdrive/distortion pedal and hold on! Malmsteen uses the exact same DiMarzio pickups in his guitars and has done so for over 20 years. The guitar I received is light (barley 7 pounds) and the action super low, smooth and fast. Great sustain. The rosewood fretboard on mine is perfect and the jumbo frets cut and filed perfectly. Neck feels like a beefy C-shape. Comes with a 3 way switch ? sort of lame but a 5 way is easy enough to install and cheap too. After a set-up with a tech this guitar was simply incredible. I play mostly heard rock, progressive jazz/rock and metal and this electric and my old ESP are all I need for a night of heavy gigging. Item came with a nice vintage style tweed case and some other goodies too. Overall a great buy and a very awesome USA made Fender Stratocaster.

      neo-classical admirer

      Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I saw Joe Stump play this week. I sat 10 feet away from where he was standing. Among his guitars was one similar to this one but made by the ESP custom shop. Check out his guitar page online! I think that with all the string bending that is typical of this music style, why would Fender not have steel frets? Otherwise you could find yourself refretting or changing necks before long.I also agree with the other reviewer, nothing but the best pick ups will do. So if these are week, they must not be what YM is using.

      Yngwie Strat not for Metal

      By loudmusic

      from Phoenix

      Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      As many other reviewers have pointed out, the pickups on the Yngwie are surprisingly weak. When I received the guitar the setup was horrible. It?s hard to believe Fender would ship a guitar in unplayable condition. That said, once everything was properly adjusted it turned out to be a blues monster. It sounds like a Strat, what else is there to say. Also, you can do 4 note bends with ease due to the scalloped neck. The one feature that would be nice would be a 5 way switch, but that can be had for under $25. Blues, jazz, rock, maybe hard rock, but definitely not a metal guitar. If you play metal buy a Les Paul. Overall, other that the scalloped frets it?s nothing special, but I love Strat?s for blues, and even though it?s a little pricey it?s a keeper.

      wow! now I'm panting

      Comments about Fender Artist Series Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      this is a historical axe that will be around for the next 50 years. congratulations to Fender for another invented marvel. The sound is extremely tight and the action great. I like the whole package. But I'll stick with the orignal YJMs on it with the HS 3 in the bridge. Scalloped frets? Good. Very good. So apeggiate, sweep, legato, tocatta, hammer on and do what you need. This guitar is the thing. In fact I beleive it even scares Frankenstein.
