Ovation is proud to present two new signature Viper models designed by “the true master of neo-classical metal shred,” YNGWIE MALMSTEEN. As a long-time Ovation endorsee, Malmsteen has incorporated many Ovation models into his live performances and recordings over the past 25 years – including the stage-friendly Viper.
The following update was posted recently on the official Yngwie Malmsteen Facebook page:
“The signature Yngwie Malmsteen Fender Stratocaster has been newly updated with a white-black-white pickguard, a bullet truss rod nut and machine screw neck mounting.
A top seller, the Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster guitar is modeled after Malmsteen’s favorite Fender. Features also include an alder body, scalloped fretboard with deeper scalloping, original synchronized tremolo and Seymour Duncan YJM Fury pickups. The scalloped feel is scary-fast with almost no fret drag. A vintage Tweed case is included.”

Malmsteen guested on Fox News 29 in San Antonio, Texas on May 17th prior to his gig that evening at Backstage Live. Check out over six minutes of jam session footage and a brief Q&A below:
