Right-handed and left-handed YJM Strats

The Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster is a replica of the guitar used by Swedish heavy metal guitarist Yngwie J. Malmsteen, made by Fender. It has two DiMarzio YJM single-coil pickups (neck/middle) paired with a DiMarzio HS-3 Stack humbucker (bridge), a scalloped fingerboard with 21 Dunlop 6000 super-sized frets, a late-'60s large headstock and a brass nut. This Fender Artist signature guitar unleashes the fury with new updated features that are pure Yngwie - a 3-ply white/black/white pickguard, a deeper scalloped fingerboard, Bullet truss rod nut and machine screw neck mounting inserts.
