2008 Fender Custom Shop Yngwie Malmsteen Tribute Stratocaster

Price Available By Request

NOS new old stock, this 2008 Fender Custom Shop guitar has never been played and is complete with original hard-shell case, all paperwork and accessories! Serial Number GF755, built by master builder Greg Fessler.

The Fender custom Shop Yngwie Malmsteen tribute Stratocaster guitar (a.k.a. the “play loud” guitar) is 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.
