Most players don't require hundreds of hours in R&D to achieve their custom signature pickup design. But then again, most players aren't Yngwie J. Malmsteen. When Yngwie set out on a quest to bring his tone to a higher level, he turned to Seymour Duncan. The result of this intense tone pursuit is the YJM Fury.
Hum-canceling single-coil-sized pickup based on the original Seymour Duncan Stack® pickup design. Recommended for rock, neo-classical, shred, hard rock, power metal, and heavy metal.
The Seymour Duncan YJM series includes dedicated bridge and neck/middle pickup designs. Available configurations include individual pickups, a three-pickup set, and a complete pre-wired pickguard.
The bridge pickup is aggressive and handles Yngwie's hard-hitting chordal onslaught.
The neck/middle 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.
For the complete YJM experience, you can purchase three YJM Fury pickups (bridge, neck, middle) in a convenient set.
If you have a Strat guitar with an 11-screw hole "USA" pattern, the YJM Fury set can drop right into your existing guitar. The loaded pickguard includes a "no lube" volume potentiometer that meets Yngwie's demands for a very fast and responsive pot. The signature YJM Volume Pot is also available separately.
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 now installs in their YJM Strat guitars.
Available in off-white, white or black.
