    A Custom Shop Tribute to a rock & roll icon!

    The Fender® custom Shop Yngwie Malmsteen tribute Stratocaster® guitar (a.k.a. the "play loud" guitar) is a meticulous reproduction of Malmsteen's beloved instrument. Produced in limited edition it is authentic in every detail, including the famous "play loud" sticker on the upper horn and, of course, the distinctive scalloped maple fingerboard.

    Like the original, it features DiMarzio® HS-3 pickups in the bridge and neck positions and a standard Fender '70s-era middle pickup, with a standard Fender bridge, a large headstock, and a battered Olympic white finish expertly treated to mirror each of the original guitar's many battle scars—the nicks, dings, scratches, burns, and worn finish spots from decades of heavy use and abuse in Malmsteen's masterful hands.

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Yngwie Malmsteen Tribute Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    This is not an instrument for the novice. However, it is forcing me to become a professional very fast. I am already playing just like Mr. Malmsteen. In a few more days I hope to live the 40 years it took to hammer this instrument into such cool condition. Suddenly, I have an ax that makes me look like a member of the "100,000" Gig Club". Before I bought this, I could not play in the first position, but now I am all over the place! It's amazing how far this Yngwie Malmsteen apparatus has taken me. I no longer know who I am, but I am much older and playing licks that I don't understand, and it sounds incredible! This was meant to be cranked up to "11" and hammered like a pile driver! If I had friends, we could all have the same guitar with the same experiences. This thing really rocks!

    Yngwie Would Have Loved This Guitar

    By Monk888

    from White Bear Lake, MN

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Yngwie Malmsteen Tribute Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Man- I just love this guitar, the completely destroyed finish makes it a dead ringer for an actual vintage axe. Only a master luthier could pull this off... the meticulously crafted scratches, the painstaking attention to each and every chip, ding, gouge, and scallop. It's just too bad the man-years of labor involved to achieve this level of beauty has elevated this guitar well out of my price range. Oh well, I forced to settle for the next best thing. I bought the actual original for less. It plays just as good and everything, but it's kind of old.

    By the way, to those fortunate few who were lucky enough to get your hands on the replica, there is no longer electrical tape on the horn. An easy enough fix.

    Rock on!
    Awesome!
    Duh...

    Fine work of art

    By S. Park

    from San Diego, CA

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Yngwie Malmsteen Tribute Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    It is one of the most expensive items in my house, and swiping a plastic for it got me few calls from credit card company. However, I believe that the cost itself should not be a factor to judge this type of items.As a guitar, it has one of the best Fender sounds, along with EJ model. Compared to two YJM signature strats I had, this one is at the totally different dimension, at least the one I have (JS46x by Jason Smith).Connecting to a clean channel, you will easily hear the different tonality and clarity compared to YJM signature models. No matter it's overdrive amp channel or pedal, it cries with that distinctive old 'Yngwie' tone. Pickup's output feels somewhat higher than YJM signature and has very well defined and balanced texture of mid-high tone.I found that the shallow scalloped fretboard of this guitar felt actually better than YJM signature; the scallop is about a half (or less) of the depth.With its incredible details of original (crack lines on the head, belt lashes, bent jack plate and switch knob, dirtied fretboard, etc), it is rather a piece of art than just an aged, relic guitar.

    I am afraid

    By Bruce W. De Leon-0lHdt

    from Honolulu, Hawaii

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Yngwie Malmsteen Tribute Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    However this giutar can make you homeless it is a true tribute to a guitarist who changed the world. Yes it does produce a similiar sound to what you heard on the first 5 albums and it does replicate the correct era and time YJM started his career. i do beleive it is a good axe but I prefer the standard signature. The cost seems stupid but the EVH costs more. This is for the collector with bread and not the striving artist. But I do beleive this thing scares Frankenstein, I am afraid (of cost, care and maintenance of this beast).

    Great Guitar

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Yngwie Malmsteen Tribute Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is astonishing. If your a fan of Malmsteen and have the cash then you'll love this guitar for the rest of your life and be happy with it. Its pricey but its a collectors guitars. If your looking for a guitar that has the tonal possibilities of this then you could definitely save yourself ten thousand bucks buying the Yngwie Malmsteen signature. This guitar is what it is. A Tribute to a Living Legend.
