Fender Custom Shop Announces New Yngwie Malmsteen Tribute Stratocaster guitar
The Fender Custom Shop has announced the new Yngwie Malmsteen Tribute Stratocaster guitar (a.k.a. the “Play Loud” guitar), 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.
The guitar will be available on November 28, 2008.
