What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Seymour Duncan Custom Invader pickups Meaty, aggressive tone perfect for heavy genres
Floyd Rose Original locking tremolo Double-locks guitar in tune at nut and bridge
3-way pickup selector switch Wide tonal range: select neck, bridge, or both
Grover tuners Fantastic stability and reliability
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 hits. This all-mahogany brute delivers punishing power thanks to the extra-hot Duncan Custom Invader humbuckers, while its set-neck construction lengthens sustain, and the original Floyd Rose 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 binding (black on the black model, white on the white model) and super custom, super cool inlays. Even the headstock on the Schecter Synyster Custom gets the A7X treatment, thanks to a demonic skull wearing a top hat inlay, a Synyster truss rod cover, and hardware color-matching Grover tuners for the perfect combination of tuning stability and devilish good looks. You strap the Schecter Synyster Custom on and there's no mistaking that you mean business, and business is good.

Seymour Duncan SH8 Invader Humbuckers

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 Seymour Duncan SH8 Invader Humbuckers in the bridge and neck position, but instead of the usual matte black pole pieces, the Schecter Synyster Custom has been given pole pieces to match the hardware of the guitar -- either gold or polished chrome, depending on the model. These powerful ceramic pickups are perfect for brandishing 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.

5 out of 5 (204 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Great guitar if you want to Shred! The guitar is a bit on the expensive side and can be cumbersome but I would not trade mine fo"
Sound: This guitar is a beast first and foremost. I love the deep, rich, growly sound it produces. If you are playing metal this is litterally one of the top 3 guitars on the market right now (would give the Xyphos700 an edge). It sounds great whether shreding or just pounding out solos. With the Floyd Rose it has great sustain as well as staying in tune which is a wonderful feature. I would have to say the sound is probably one of the best features. Feature: This guitar litterally has some of the best passive pickups out there in the invaders and you are going to want a case whether it comes with one or not as with the design I have noticed that some people have chiped and scratched it and when your spending this kind of money you want to protect your investment. Ease of Use: It is very easy to get a great sound out of this guitar straight out of the box. The only reason I give it an 8 is that this guitar is heavy and can be cumbersom so it is not a great fit for everyone. Quality: It is a Schecter product and they have a great waranty as well so there is no question that this guitar is made amazingly well. Value: Its a wonderful guitar do not get me wrong, but given that it is 200 to 300 dollars more expensive than the Xyphos 700 I would say its worth it to me but you can get more bang for your buck on other equally awesome guitars. Manufacturer Support: Owning an Epionage has taught me one thing and that is buy Schecter or Ibanez as they both have the best customer support and make your experience easy and time saving, no way to be dissapointed here. The Wow Factor: This product looks amazing and just screams metal as soon as you pull it out on stage. No question one of the best looking guitars I have owned. Overall: I plan on holding on to this one for a long long time I have owned it for awhile now and trust me this guitar is spoiled and I keep it pristine as I love it. A year now and its still in the tuneing I started it in.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Schecter never disapoints "
Sound: The sound quality of this guitar is amazing. The invaders sound great for metal, which is what I play, but also sound good for cleans. The coil tap helps with the clean tone as well. The neck pickup is great for soloing and the bridge pickup sounds awesome for rhythm. Feature: This guitar has tons of great features. The floyd rose stays in tune great. I can push it in to where the strings are extremely loose and when I pull it back up it goes right back in tune. The ebony fingerboard is slick and fast. The invaders are great sounding and have coil tap for even more versatility. Ease of Use: It is very easy to get an amazing sound out of this guitar for whatever style you play. The guitar is a little on the heavy side, but other than that it's great. Quality: The quality of this guitar is very high end and the guitar has a solid construction. Value: The value of this guitar is great, it's definitely worth it for $1000. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to contact the manufacturer. The Wow Factor: The White and Gold finish is what I bought and it looks great. The gold hardware just makes it even more stunning. Overall: This is my fourth Schecter and every one of them are amazing. This is my favorite I've gotten so far and is the best sounding one I have. It plays, sounds, and looks great.
