Fender Blasphemy

Ok Ok, I know this is going to be blasphemous but i've always been attrated to the Fender Malmsteen Signature...(not the guy, only his guitar) I simply love that YJM neck PU... I just hope it's not noisy on a high gain amp. Oh and the scalloped maple fretboard !!! ( never played with scallop but I hear its easy to play)

Anyone recommend ? Pros and Cons ?

Also can the trem do fairly decent small dives or is it like all non locking trems and go out of tune ?

Here ya go ! let the party begin ...

Re: Fender Blasphemy

Play a scalloped neck before you spend the money. It's very different from a non scalloped neck.

Re: Fender Blasphemy

Tbh, I have a lightly scalloped neck and don't find it very hard to adjust to at all.

Explain to me why is it blasphemous??? and what's wrong with Yngwie man?
he is a great player who gets demonized wrongly by people who have never even met him or spoken to him! If the thing that you like is the neck pickup don't you think it'd be smarter and cheaper just to buy that instead of a signature guitar you're not familiar with and you don't appreaciate...?!?

Re: Fender Blasphemy

I say buy an EJ Strat..... Scallops are seafood, not something that belongs on a guitar neck!

Hey Olie.... Yngwie??? Sucks! (JK) Actually though.... most don't demonize him.... he's done that all on his own!

Take your pick!

You are entitled to your opinion Mike but let me ask you this. have you ever met him? or talked to him? has he ever been a jerk to you? if the answer to all 3 questions is NO then I don't see why pick on the guy. True, we all fall into the trap of bashing other players at times but I think you should have first hand knowledge or experiences before passing judgement on somebody.
I was able to meet the guy a few years back after a concert and he was really cool and down to earth we talked about his influences and players like Uli Jon Roth, Blackmore and schenker, he was very patient and informative I have a couple of pics of the occasion somewhere.

I was just kidding...... (about sucking, you did see the JK.... yes???) Anyway, I have no doubt he can be nice...... but then again just look at his rant on that Tokyo flight. We all know we're our own worst enemies! You've got to admit though, he's been less than "social" in quite a few situations. Whether I have first hand knowledge or not becomes irrelevant when you're in the public eye and behave poorly in front of the public.

I agree to some exetent and although I do not condone his actions where does that crazy chick get off doing something like that?!? he was not even talking to her. I bet if you were flying first class and someone did that to you, you would not be a happy camper!

Actually he was making derogatory comments and this chick poured water on him. While I may not have been a happy camper I don't think I'd have threatened to "kill" her! Sorry, that was plain stupid of him! Bitch or not!
