I'm thinking about buying a strat, i want to get a tone that closely emulates the tone of yngwie. my question is however, would the same pickups that yngwie uses on his vintage strats sound just as good in a new strat?


again i am still contemplating my next guitar but can anyone please answer this for me?

They will. But his setup is very different than most peoples' rigs. He uses very low output pickups with a high gain amp. You could probably get closer to his tone with different pickups depending on your amp.

i have a bugera 333xl, pretty versatile, i can try to get a yngwie tone, but my body wood for guitar is mahogany so its a little too deep with a high gain amp isn't all that great for me. though i saw a thing on youtube with this guy just playing vintage..everything, and vintage strats to me, sound AMAZING.


edit: its arguable, but wood type and age of wood definitely do alot for sound as well. though amp is also a major factor, i just see it as a speaker that has a gain feature.

You probably don't really need his pickups. His tone mostly is just from the crisp and somewhat brittle tone of overdriven single coils. Try a strat through your amp and see what happens.



bleh, i've tried a squier through my amp haha, not quite what i'm looking for. maybe its just his pickups then you think?
