Video: Yngwie Malmsteen Discusses His Signature Seymour Duncan YJM Fury Pickups

Inspired by a story we shared earlier this week (Guitarist Sarah Michelle Demos Seymour Duncan Yngwie Malmsteen YJM Fury Pickups), we tracked down this video from 2010.

It shows Malmsteen visiting Seymour Duncan HQ to see how his signature YJM Fury pickups are produced. The guitarist also sits down with Evan Skopp from Seymour Duncan to discuss the development of the pickups and more.

From 1998 to 2014, he was one third of Mister Neutron, an instrumental rock act that toured the universe and elsewhere and released three albums via Austin-based Deep Eddy Records. These days he performs with several New York City-area bands and can often be spotted with one of his many, many, many B-bender-equipped guitars. In past lives he was GW’s managing editor and online managing editor – and he still can’t believe he got to write the liner notes for the latest SRV box set.
