NAMM 2010: Seymour Duncan YJM FURY – Yngwie Malmsteen signature pickups

Remember a few months ago when Yngwie Malmsteen abruptly left DiMarzio? Well check this out. While it’s gonna be hard to adjust to Yngwie no longer being a DiMarzio guy, I find it endearingly hilarious that not only is the pickup called the FURY, but Yngwie’s such a force of nature that they seem to be going with an official all-caps spelling of FURY.

Yngwie Malmsteen and Seymour Duncan create a brand new signature model pick up YJM FURY.

Yngwie Malmsteen will also be attending the Namm show. You lucky fans will get a chance to meet the guitar legend up close and personal..


Come meet Yngwie Malmsteen in person at the Seymour Duncan and at the Fender Guitar Booths:
Meet Yngwie Sat Jan 16th…
Fender Guitars Booth 4:00 PM Saturday, Booth 304 A 3rd Floor
Seymour Duncan Booth 5:00 PM on Saturday, Booth #4358 in Hall C.
When Yngwie J. Malmsteen set out on a quest to bring his tone to a higher level, he turned to Seymour Duncan. The result of hundreds of hours of intense tone pursuit is the YJM Fury: only available from Seymour Duncan.


Application
Hum-canceling single-coil-sized pickup based on our original StackĀ® pickup design. Recommended for rock, neo-classical, shred, hard rock, power metal, and heavy metal.


Description
The bridge pickup is aggressive and handles Yngwie’s hard-hitting chordal onslaught. The neck pickup balances Yngwie’s fluid left hand technique with his broad mix of right hand pick attack for a tone that’s sweet and fluid, but with great articulation and responsiveness to dynamics.


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.


Guitars
The YJM Fury will directly retrofit most single-coil equipped guitars. Though originally designed for a FenderĀ® 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.
