Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Strat

Brian6787, 31.08.2014
I bought this guitar recently as I was looking for a classic strat sound with less noise when used with high gain sounds. I was also interested to try a scalloped neck as I've always preferred jumbo frets on other guitars.
I am absolutely delighted with the sound and playability of the guitar (I made a little demo video here showing some of the tones I can get from it scalloped neck takes a little getting used to but I love it and really enjoy the extra grip you get for bending and vibrato.
The only negative thing I can say about the guitar is that there seems to be a mismatch between the string spacing of the bridge (vintage) and the width of the neck (modern slimmer Fender style). This means that the E strings are extremely close to the edge of the neck and I find I regularly pull the high E off the edge when doing pull-offs on that string. I was aware of this limitation though before buying the guitar (I researched a good bit on the web before buying it) so it was not a surprise. Just a little disappointing that Fender have not resolved it. I guess you could learn to get used to it, but in my case I'm going to resolve it myself by changing the bridge to a Callaham after-market bridge. This should also solve another issue with the tremolo in that there's a lot of play with the bar, again something that could be better.
So to sum up, for me it's a fantastic guitar, but let down a little by a poor choice (and quality) of bridge. The other components, like the machine heads, quality of fret dressing are all very good.

Fantastic instrument!

21.08.2016
It's a fantastic instrument, no matter if you are a fan of YJM or not. The scalloped board may feel a bit strange at the beginning, however, it feels lovely as soon as you get used to it . I believe it facilitates speeding as you touch less wood while playing. My 5 other Strats became retired, since I've bought this guitar.
