Yngwie Malmsteen Unleashed New Guitar Pick up

An interesting news comes from, shred guitar legend, Yngwie Malmsteen as he has just unveiled a new gear to the public that he will be using on his classic Fender strat. The new product that Yngwie released is a new pick up that he worked with Seymour Duncan called the YJM FURY.

The new pick-up according to the official presentation from Yngwie's official site is a single coil hum-canceling stuff that is being recommended for musicians that plays rock, neo-classical, shred, hard rock, power metal, and heavy metal. It is said also that the bridge pickup is aggressive, suitable with the guitar playing style from the Swedish born guitar hero and yet it is also has great articulation and responsive to dynamics.

Another complete explanation about the YJM FURY as it can be read on Yngwie's official site goes like this:
Complete setup
The YJM series includes a dedicated bridge pickup and a separate neck/middle pickup. Pickups can be purchased individually, in a three-pickup set, or in a pre-wired pickguard ready to drop into your Strat guitar with an 11-screw hole "USA" pattern. The loaded pickguard includes a "no lube" volume potentiometer that meets Yngwie's demands for a very fast and responsive pot.

The YJM Fury will directly retrofit most single-coil equipped guitars. Though originally designed for a Fender® Strat with a scalloped maple fingerboard, the YJM Fury will work well with any bolt-on guitar that utilizes traditional single-coil-size Strat pickups. The YJM Fury is the same pickup that Fender installs in their YJM Strat guitars.

Available Mods
Available in off-white, white or black.

Here is a sample picture of the new product, seriously I haven't had the chance to try it out but it looks like a special stuff that Seymour Duncan is unleashing with Yngwie here. The evidence of the YJM FURY qualities might be able to be seen in the upcoming NAMM show, where the guitar master will be available to do meet and greet and possibly do a little on the spot performance to at Fender and Seymour Duncan booths. The virtuoso can be found at the event on January 16 and he will be available at: Fender Guitars Booth 4:00 PM Saturday, Booth 304 A 3rd Floor and
Seymour Duncan Booth 5:00 PM on Saturday, Booth #4358 in Hall C.
