Guitarist Sarah Michelle Demos Seymour Duncan Yngwie Malmsteen YJM Fury Pickups —Video

Earlier today, the gang at Seymour Duncan posted this shot-in-2012 video to its Facebook page.

In the clip, a guitarist named Sarah Michelle tries out Seymour Duncan's Yngwie Malmsteen YJM Fury STK-S10 pickups, which live in her Fender Stevie Ray Vaughan Signature Strat.

"I've always been a fan of Yngwie's gnarly strat tone," Sarah says in the information posted along with the video on YouTube. "[I'm] playing some Yngwie licks for most of the video but jamming some other riffs toward the end. These pickups are perfect for rock!"
