The lineup includes guitar strings, instrument cables, gig bags, electronic tuners, guitar straps and effects pedals.

Scottsdale, AZ (January 27, 2014) -- Fender Accessories and Stratocaster guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen now introduce a premium artist signature lineup of Yngwie Malmsteen accessories featuring guitar strings, instrument cables, gig bags, electronic tuners, guitar straps and effects pedals. All are designed for maximum performance and durability worthy of the name of rock’s greatest neo-classical shred guitarist and one of Fender’s most enduring and acclaimed signature artists.

Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Signature Electric Guitar Strings are custom designed with specific wrap ratios and gauges to provide unparalleled speed, maximum tone and smooth playability. Made from the highest-quality nickel-plated steel and featuring Fender Bullet ends for more sustain and incredible tone, these strings are ready to “unleash the fury” in gauges 8-11-14-22-32-46.

The Fender Yngwie Malmsteen High-Performance Signature Cable is specially designed with performance in mind. The sleek red-braided exterior jacket and extra-thick interior reduce handling noise, while custom-designed commercial-grade brass connectors provide quiet and durable operation. Engineered to provide true sonic transparency without coloring or otherwise changing your tone, and backed by a lifetime guarantee.

The Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Signature Guitar Bag offers maximum protection while on the go with your most prized instrument. Features include thick-cell foam padding, soft leopard-print plush interior and durable nylon exterior that let you transport your instrument in reliable safety and full-on Malmsteen style.

Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Cables are designed specifically for live performances and are strategically engineered to resist twisting, kinking and retention of any “physical memory.” Brass connectors deliver the best sonic balance between your equipment and your performance. An excellent choice for all your instrument cable needs, and backed by a lifetime warranty.

The Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Clip-On Tuner is easy to operate even on the darkest stages. Stylish chrome bezel with built-in vibration sensor provides accurate tuning in even noisy areas, and the large display features an easy-to-read LCD needle that indicates correct pitch. Weighs a mere 50 grams, with a tuning range of A0-C8 and an A4 range of 430Hz-450Hz.

The Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Rising Force Overdrive Pedal is an updated version of Yngwie’s personal overdrive pedal, which features increased gain with his trademark tone. Built to withstand the rigors of the road and ready to rock.
