NAMM 2012: Ovation Yngwie Malmsteen Viper acoustic

Yngwie gets a pair of acoustics via Ovation at NAMM this year. YM68 (steel string) and YM63 (nylon string) feature a solid chambered Mahogany body, five-piece mahogany and maple necks, and preamp circuitry specially designed to deliver natural acoustic tone with absolutely no feedback – even at Yngwie volumes. And because this is Yngwie, the steel string Viper has a hand scalloped fingerboard.

They’re available in White or Rosso Corsa Red (which is the colour of one of – ONE of – Yngwie’s favourite Ferraris).

They’re not cheap: US RRG is $3149. Pics from NAMM below!

Neutrino discovery could prove existence of Yngwie Malmsteen

The interwebz is buzzing today with news that CERN may – may – have detected neutrinos travelling at 60 nanoseconds faster than the speed of light. There’s still a lot of testing to be done to verify if this is a real result or if there was some kind of measurement error, but if true it has huge implications for the guitar world. Simply put, it would prove the existence of Yngwie Malmsteen, who to date has only been theorised as being a real three-dimensional object and not some kind of quantum hologram distorted via gravitational lensing and reflected off swamp gas.
