Ovation USA Signature
Yngwie J. Malmsteen Signature Nylon YM63-6P

Yngwie J. Malmsteen Signature Nylon Viper, White Pearl, Chambered Mahogany Body, w/ Case

Ovation is proud to present two new signature Viper models designed by the true master of neo-classical, metal shred: Yngwie J. Malmsteen. As long time Ovation endorsee, Yngwie has incorporated many Ovation models into his live performances and recordings over the past 25 years -including the stage-friendly Viper.Yngwies new signature Vipers, models YM68 (steel string) and YM63 (nylon string), feature a solid chambered Mahogany body, 5 piece Mahogany and Maple necks, and preamp circuitry specially designed to deliver natural acoustic tone with absolutely no feedback -even at the most high-level stage volumes.True to Yngwie’s personal playing preferences, the steel string Viper also has a hand scalloped fingerboard which creates less friction between the wood and the string when bending notes or adding vibrato. A light touch is all you need to play fast and articulate riffs with less effort than non-scalloped fretboards.The new models are available in two color options: 6P -White or RC -Rosso Corsa Red (which happens to match one of Yngwie’s favorite Ferraris)
