Awesome video. I think it's cool how Malmsteen is back to being respected after a long period when everyone seemed to pounce upon him as a has been regurgitating the same solos over an over. Being the archetype neoclassical shredder is a pretty cool bag. I used to have an ESP FR-27 guitar. It was scalloped from the 12th to the 27th fret. Quite a cool axe, wish I still had it but traded it away to fund something else. The scallops really make for easy fretting and bending of notes. Given that Yngwie already plays with a light touch, he probably finds it easy to play even lighter than that with the scalloped board. Since speed is his thing, seems like a good deal.
