Sandvik Let’s Create: The Smash-Proof Guitar, tested by Yngwie Malmsteen

November 4, 2019

When I was 7, I saw
Jimi Hendrix smashing a guitar on TV. So, I started playing guitar
so I could smash it. I’ve probably smashed
over 100 guitars. Well, I feel like
I just came out of a boxing ring. 12 f****** rounds! To break it is impossible. But you can break other things with it. Beast. Yeah, it’s a beast.

    Can you imagine if they sent it to Yngwie, and it didn’t survive the shipping…. 😂

    Ritchie Blackmore would have smashed that up no problem. And with more style.

  • Reply Minis3b April 21, 2019 at 11:35 pm

    the point of smashing a guitar is to…actually break it.
    and this ad is too staged. looks so fake and not natural.
    what did you expect from titanium ? to break?

    Would have been nice if the audience wasn't paid to be there. This was too staged to feel genuine

  • Reply Fabian Van Der Elst April 22, 2019 at 8:07 am

    I never heard Yngwie Malmsteens music before, but now I don't even want to hear from it. Music is meant to be music, and not a showcase of the money you have to smash those guitars. There are thousands of people playing on low-budget gear, because they can't afford better gear, and here he is smashing gear worth thousands of dollars, euros, pounds, whatever. Sorry, this enrages me a little.
