Swedish born Guitar God Yngwie Malmstein has been playing the guitar since before he was ten years old. He combined his love for rock and classical music, forming a style all his own that nobody could touch. A Strat being one of his first guitars, he has been loyal to the Fender brand ever since.
This guitar is a 1988 USA Fender strat that while not exact, is similar to one of the guitars Yngwie had played in his career.
On a mid October day in 2008, one of the lesson teachers that works with us here at The Farm got the opportunity to meet with Yngwie and spend some time with him and a few others back stage on the tour bus. In that time, they were able to get an autograph on this guitar for us and snap a few photos as well! It was an incredible opportunity to be in the presence a rock legend such as this, and we're thrilled to share the experience with you!
