A Schecter Axe Customized to Syn's Exacting Specs!

The Schecter Synyster Gates Custom is the very same signature axe as seen on stage and in the studio with Avenged Sevenfold -- a band responsible for bringing shredding guitar solos back onto mainstream radio. Guitar World Magazine even placed the fleet-fingered Synyster in the Top 50 Fastest Guitarists of All Time, citing such influences as Django Reinhardt and Dimebag Darrell. Now you can get the same Schecter that Synyster himself uses to record and perform your favorite A7X songs. This all-mahogany brute delivers punishing power thanks to the extra-hot Synyster Gates USA Custom humbuckers, while its set-neck construction lengthens sustain, and the Schecter-exclusive Floyd Rose 1500 bridge squeals like a bleeding demon.

Looks That Kill

The Schecter Synyster Custom is a well-sharpened axe with enough cutting tone to please even the most demanding shredsman. Featuring a set Mahogany neck with a familiar Fender-esque 25 1/2-inch scale length carefully set into a mahogany body, the Synyster Custom's neck at once feels comfortable and fast. The fun doesn't stop there because, true to form, Mr. Gates tricked the 24-fret ebony fretboard out with glow-in-the-dark side-dot position markers and those super-custom, super-cool inlays. You strap the Schecter Synyster Custom on and there's no mistaking that you mean business, and business is good.

Synyster's Own Signature US-wound Schecter Custom Shop Pickups

If you haven't picked up on it by now, every little feature on the Schecter Synyster Custom has been given the Custom treatment, and the pickups are no exception. You'll find a pair of Syn's custom humbuckers in the bridge and neck position. These powerful ceramic pickups are perfect for delivering the hard-edged style of rock and metal that A7X have built their career on, all controlled by a volume pot, tone pot, and 3-way selector switch. Couple that with a Floyd Rose vibrato and locking nut system, and the Schecter Synyster Custom is capable of nuclear reactor dive bombs and the speediest of palm-muted chunk fests with nary a worry of tuning instability.

- Synyster Gates' signature Schecter guitar
- Ergonomic contours for comfort
- Glow-in-the-dark side dot position markers
- Floyd Rose 1500 tremolo bridge

Schecter Synyster Gates Custom Guitar

Never one to stand still, after over a decade of playing his Schecter Synyster Gates Custom signature guitar all around the world, Synyster Gates had collected a few ideas about how to make it even better; The new, upgraded Schecter Synyster Custom guitar is the culmination of this effort. Updated appointments include new ergonomic contours for increased comfort over long sets, glow-in-the-dark side-dot position markers to light your way on the darkest stages, and an upgrade to the Floyd Rose 1500 bridge system for precision dive-bombing pleasure. Not stopping there, the guitar also comes installed with Synyster's own signature US-wound Schecter Custom Shop pickup set; Utilizing three precision-milled Ceramic 8 magnets, Syn's new powerhouse pickup pushes almost 18k DCR while retaining incredible detail and dynamic response, and is hand-potted to eliminate squeal and feedback, even at ungodly volumes. Complete with Syn's personal stylistic touches, the end result is an axe tailor-made for unleashing global sonic mayhem.
