Product DescriptionYou might not realize it from his music, but Yngwie Malmsteen is a vintage Strat collector, and he swears by his 50s and 60s axes. He also swears by the HS-3 , and he's always wanted a vintage magnet-stagger version to go with his best guitars. While there is still a strong resemblance to the HS-3 , the YJM has more presence and brilliance, particularly on the high strings, and still no 60-cycle hum. Yngwie uses it in the neck position of his main guitars, and it's also the standard neck pickup on his signature model Strat.
The DiMarzio DP217 YJM Pickup is a single-coil pickup with an output of 93 millivolts. DC Resistance: 23.50K.
