Yngwie Malmsteen is not a man known for his moderation. In fact, the legendary shredder recently stated “…I started playing guitar so I could smash it – probably smashed over 100 guitars”. It wasn’t long before engineering and manufacturing company Sandvik caught wind of this and teamed up with Yngwie to see if they could create the world’s first smash-proof guitar. The whole process is actually pretty fascinating and was a lot more in-depth than one might think. But the real question is: were they successful? You’ll have to see for yourself.
