    He's goofing with everybody....

    For example -

    "Yeah. Well, the switch and the volume control and then into the jack but the volume controls are disconnected."

    It's amazing the array of tone you get out of that setup.

    "Yeah, but what's so great with those pickups is that if you put it on the neck and middle selection, and you turn down the volume a little bit, the opening on the title track, I was at half volume on the guitar and it sounds chime-y ....




    At least he's got a sense of humor about things...

    "Yeah, I had my tech remove the input jack, which is always the source of bad tone"

    My guess is the tone knob is not wired.

    Yngwie interviews are almost always entertainment gold. I love reading or watching them.

    "and I kind of tried a little bit and then I put them aside and started playing my Yngwie Malmsteen model guitar with Yngwie Malmsteen pickups through my Yngwie Malmsteen Marshall with my Yngwie Malmsteen overdrive pedal."

    That's a classic.

    I always think it is a rib when a magazine asks him about guitar tone or musical taste, it just has to be.

    He wouldn't know good tone if it slap him in his swollen face.

    The best tone comes from any of my ant_riv guitars, using any of my ant_riv pickups, into any of my ant_riv pedals and amplified by one of my ant_riv amplifiers.

    I think that’s because ant_riv has some really great equipment.

    Oh, and ant_riv is really modest also.

    Who is this Yngwie you speak of?

    My favorite Yngwie quote, which is about an equally skilled player older and more famous than him: "He has some sad-ass sh*t vibrato. That guy should play the banjo."

    None of my guitars have “input jacks.” They have OUTPUT jacks.

    They can still be the source of bad tone, though. ;)
