Overall this guitar is great, great tone, great material, and amazing to play. Highly recommended.
I bought this guitar last week and I must say I am highly impressed by it, I can play a lot of A7X's guitar riffs and it sounds just like the live or album versions of the songs. I highly recommend this guitar to any A7X guitar player.
Very nice Floyd Rose and locking tremelo. Also the Duncan Invaders are very impressive pick ups
I believe this guitar will increase in value overtime as A7X releases more successful albums.

The one thing that I have to say about this guitar is: the floyd system on it is not good. I recently had to string one for the 4th time and the system is ridiculously bad in comparison to other floyds I've dealt with (such as Peavey and Ibanez). The system only allows a small piece of string in it, making it ridiculously hard to keep in there. Another thing I noticed was how easy it broke new strings. I had to restring it four times and I know that other people I work with had to restring it. It could just be a bad one in the bunch, but I wouldn't want to risk the money on it...

      Simply I cannot explain how amazing this guitar is, I've been playing guitar for 3 years and I'm pretty expierenced. I played this guitar at guitar center and it just blew me away. It was so smooth, dark and fun. It was great it had the ultra access neck and it was like I said just amazing. I highely suggest buyers to buy this guitar, its worth the money trust me. If your an Avenged Sevenfold fan you'll love this guitar. Plus it sounds just like Synyster's.

      Ehh

      By trogdor1345

      from Charlestown, IN

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      I purchased this guitar for the ability to have a tremolo at the ready, and also the ability to switch guitars when I need to change tunings live. I had originally purchased an ESP LTD HM350FR, but I was having trouble with the tuning and the strings buzzing. I spent hours looking around stores when this guitar caught my eye. It sounds pretty good, very deep. The extra jumbo frets were a little hard to get used to. The guitar is quite heavy. I tried to use an EVH D-Tuna to make switching between tunings easier, but due to the floating tremolo, there was not enough room between the bridge and the body of the guitar. I've had several issues with the tuning. Every time I would go to play it, every string would be sharp. I would then have to loosen each of the fine tuners. After a few times of this, I would run out of room to loosen and would have to completely readjust the tuners and locking nuts. This was an extreme inconvenience for playing live, which I do very often. I'm not sure if these issues are only a problem with my guitar, but I'm beginning to regret purchasing this, especially for the money I spent on it.

      Not A Fan

      By Musicismytherapy

      from Down South

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      I played this guitar while on a trip to Idaho. My brother and I couldn't find anything better to do that day, so we went to the music store to kill time. While he looked at drum sticks and heads, I messed around with a few guitars including an ESP, 2 Ibanezes, a Fender, and a few Schecters including this guitar.I didn't like the feel or the sound of this guitar at all, though I have definitely heard worse. The tone was terrible and the neck felt almost sticky from the finish. If I were to recommend one of the guitars I played that day, it would more than likely be the Telecaster.

      Great guitar

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is outstanding. Yeah, it looks awesome, but the sound is something else. The pickups I found out are the same as regular Invaders except they have chrome pole heads. They sound the same. The idiot a couple reviews under me needs to ask the people who makes the pickups next time. And the cleans arent bad as long as you're on the neck pickup.

      Must have if can afford

      from Eau Claire, Wisconsin

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is amazing. Playing on line 6 spider 4 hd 150 half stack is like the heavens singing even with a distortion. This guitar has only a couple of problems. 1. the nuts for the locking tremelo scratch and strip very easily. 2. the little plastic string holders in the floyd rose break really easily too. OVerall this guitar was well worth the 1,000+ i recommend buying elixer strings or ernie ball power slinky. the stock string are ernie ball super slinky but those don't sound too good after a couple good jammin sessions

      Not just for metal

      By Ogrog

      from Annapolis, MD

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      Phenominal and versatile guitar. I play everything from classic rock to metal and this guitar handles it all. Heavy mahogany body with the SD Invaders provide a rich deep tone, but with the coil tap feature, I switch to a great Strat tone instantly. The neck is very fast and comfortably and the original Floyd takes me back to my 80s roots. Add the asthetic appeal and this guitar is a bargain for the price.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      The Schecter Synyster Custom is a great guitar for metal and thrash. It has great tonal capabilities and a lot of sustain. The Custom Modified Seymour Duncan SH-8 Invaders are unbelievable. Don't get hyped up, they have amazing output, but it's not "top of the line" and has a customized matrix 7/6/7 to have an "Avenged" tone. The highs are high, the lows are low, and the mids are slightly passive but to back the highs and lows. The guitar looks sick, and it's the only downside to this guitar, but it has a very weak finish making the guitar very very very prone to dents, scratches, cracks, etc. If you buy this guitar, add a few coats of finish, and if you're gonna have to take it to a luthier to get that done, don't get this guitar because the Floyd Rose takes very high maintenance. Please be sure you know how to properly set up, intonate, and maintain a Floyd Rose. And I also recommend getting stainless steel hardware for your Floyd Rose, as the original will rust easily.

      Awesome player!

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      I have had the Schecter Synyster Custom for about 2 years now and just love the feel of it. It is perfect for when I am in the mood to play a little bit rougher music. The neck is so smooth and fast and the tone from the Seymour Duncan Custom Invaders is absolutely flawless. I have heard so many bad reviews about the guitars clean tone capabilities and unless they are unaware of the push-pull tone pot, they are insane. Yeah, I agree it doesn't burst out squeaky clean tones like my telecaster, but just look at it! Does it look like a guitar that really wants to be playing COUNTRY music to you? I mean it has a deathbat on it for petes sake. The look is killer and it gives you perfect tone for many rock/metal genres, especially the band it was made for, Avenged Sevenfold. 24 frets of shredding madness is at your fingertips if you are up for the thrill.
