Re: My 2 New Guitars!!!

Re: My 2 New Guitars!!!

I have found the key to my Malmsteen is a good pedal. I use a compressor and sometimes a DS-1 set as a boost. It just seems to need that extra bit of push to get the most out of it. I would like to try the Malmsteen DOD just to see what effect that has.

I have also found the bridge pickup is quite trebly, I usually just roll off the tone a bit but I have also tweeked some of my pod settings. The neck pickup will make you wet your pants.....it's lovely

It took me a while to fall in love with my Malmsteen because I was so used to 24 frets and humbuckers. It is a very different guitar, it will stay clear and articulate no matter what and it just has an inherent sort of clean twang to it. Plus it looks amazing.

Re: My 2 New Guitars!!!

My buddy has an SLSMG in flat black.

I dumped an EMG Zakk set in it with two batteries (18v).

He paid about the same for his with no case.

It rocks!

It took me forever to get him to buy a hard tail guitar. Now that's all he plays.

Nice Japan made guitar!

Re: My 2 New Guitars!!!

I tried out the yngwie one, didn't like it, mainly because its maple(dont like the feel), its a thicker neck then i'm used to and it only has 21 frets, also all scalloped witch is wierd getting used to i guess.

Yngwie Stratocaster rocks! I haven't played one yet, but plan on it in the future. Great purchase, you got great deals on both guitars! By the way, where did you get the YJM Strat for only $950? Have fun with them!
