    I think Yngwie Malmsteen uses just 21 or 22 frets, because the neck pickup tone, but, well, this:


    I hope this is not a repost, if it is...just delete it plis.

    Dont forget that Yngwie was a guitar tech at first....

    This is probably a guitar made up by him with different parts...

    I cant read the headstock and it does not look like there is a Fender logo on it... :shrug:

    EDIT: actually I do see fender... so its probably a conversion neck and a custom made logo....

    I read in an interview (long ago) that Yngwie hates the sound of the middle pickup and never uses it!

    EDIT: OK, that still applies.

    I have no idea, probably so....

    But you could also make one up with parts and make up a custom logo...

    Its probably a guitar custom made for Yngwie, you know just like Steve Vai's jem and the Ibanez temperated frets which have been add on his custom neck...

    Sorry for the offtopic but actually it was a swedish dude who came up with the true temperament and he aproached steve with it and steve loved it so he had the customshop make a blank neck that he sent to the swedish dude who put the frets on his guitar

    dude mode and offtopic mode off:

    Yeah, it is a custom shop. He's Yngwie right?
    His playing has changed quite a lot recently. Last year I was at his gig and he played great but his sound was shite. Good to see that he has found his sound back again.

    Warmoth will make one for you. You would have to relocated your neck pickup though.

    I'm fairly certain Fender made it for him. I had the VHS that clip comes from, I'm pretty sure he talks about it at one point.
    Also, yep, he disconnects the middle pickup, and the tone pots too.

    Sure! In any scale you want as long as it's 25 or 28 5/8".

    I have to wonder about the 25. It might sound Les Paulish.
