The clip below, posted by Seymour Duncan pickups, features guitarist YNGWIE MALMSTEEN's signature YJM pickups in action:

"The bridge pickup is aggressive and handles Yngwie's hard-hitting chordal onslaught. The neck pickup balances Yngwie's fluid left hand technique with his broad mix of right hand pick attack for a tone that's sweet and fluid, but with great articulation and responsiveness to dynamics. Available individually or in a pre-wired pickguard."

The following update was posted recently on the official Yngwie Malmsteen Facebook page:

"The signature Yngwie Malmsteen Fender Stratocaster has been newly updated with a white-black-white pickguard, a bullet truss rod nut and machine screw neck mounting.

A top seller, the Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster guitar is modeled after Malmsteen’s favorite Fender. Features also include an alder body, scalloped fretboard with deeper scalloping, original synchronized tremolo and Seymour Duncan YJM Fury pickups. The scalloped feel is scary-fast with almost no fret drag. A vintage Tweed case is included."
