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...

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.

      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.

      Awsome Guitar...

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      Iv been a huge synyster gates fan for a while, and have been looking at this guitar. And for A grand its totally worth it. It has a extremley bright And saturated tone on clean, and give a powerfull roar on distortion. I use a Non-name brand amp run through a marshall Compressor and a Digitech Death-Metal distortion pedal, and It gives an amazing Tone with the Seymour D. Invaders. The coil tap is gives amazing clarity in clean, but doesnt show much difference on distortion. The pickup positions give you An amazing Lead guitar sounding tone while in treble position, and a Warm full sounding tone whilsth on Rithym. The 24 frets and Floyd Rose give you a wider range of Song choice than most guitars. The Origanal Floyd Rose gives you amazing durability and lets you divebomb for hours on end without slipage and or string breakage. The Grover tuners Are outstandingly Smooth and give you a strong, tight hold that will last. And the fine tuners on the Floyd Rose give your tuning amazing acuracy. The paint job is extremley fine and has an amazing finish. The Gothic crosses and the Deathbat on the 12th fret (logo for metalcore band Avenged Sevenfold), along with the Devil Horned shaped head stock, give this guitar a Extremley Stylish and demonic look that any Rock/Metal fan would die for. This Guitar is also extremley light for a mahagony necked guitar. And the shape gives it an amazingly comfortabe feel whilsth playing. The only problem I`ve had is that when you raise the Floyd Rose bar, The strings touch the pickups, but all you hae to do it lower the pickups down, or if you dont want to sacrifice tone, just Dimebag it and Put Ducktape over the pickups to stop the clanking. Also it was impossible to find a good case online, but I suggest calling up your local Schecter dealer/Schecter dealing guitar store, And asking them to order a synyster gates custom fit case for you for about $150-$110.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      Features - this thing has all the stuff i was looking for, 24 frets, original floyd rose and nice pickups. the tone is absolutly indescribable, play one open drop D chord and you'll see what im talkin' about.Quality - I got this thing brand new custom ordered through a local retailer from the LA shop, so I was sort of expecting some things to be a pain at first, the FR needed alot of adjustment and the action is still a little low, but it plays really fast, and the knut at the top was a little misaligned but i can do things that i cant do on my other guitar on this one. It's nice overall.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      I bought a fedora in june and then got into a7x then I said to myself that synister sure gets a nice sound. so I saw this at a guitar shop and played beast and the harlot among other songs, and boy was I blown away it sounded exactly like each of those songs. I also played jazz, blues, and rock songs and the sound was amazing. Now I'm not big on schecter guitars but I definetley reccomend this.

      SYN Custom by Schecter

      By SYN Guitarist

      from greenville, RI

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      This is one of the best guitars money can buy, For a great price it is worth every penny. I was close to spending $4000-5000 on a custom model to look like this guitar,Then I asked Brian (SYN) When I met him at a show he told me that Schecter is making signature model guitars for him and Zack so wait for it, And I did. I have about 9 Schecter's and the SYN Custom is one of the best, Produces great sound,feel and over-all playability. If you get this guitar you wont regret it :-D.

      I got this guitar back in December of 2006, and still today it has held up its quality. Mine is tuned down 1 half step below Drop C and the Floyd Rose will not lose that tuning no matter how much I use it. Even though I dont like Avenged Sevenfold anymore, I will not sell this axe. Its a keeper.

      I was expecting this to be awkward to play but I really loved it. The pickups make the lower strings sound amazing. I love the bridge, it makes the strings the perfect height. If this was made in a 7 string version, I would by it.

      By MollyGearSolid

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      well, i was at my local guitar store today, and i saw this. i'd heard of Schecter before, but never played one, so i gave it a shot. i was biased against this guitar from the start, since i don't like Avenged Sevenfold or metal. i started off playing "Zero" by Smashing Pumpkins, and i was unimpressed. i switched to the bridge pickup, and played "Today" and "1979" by Smashing Pumpkins. i immediately noticed a huge improvement in tone. i played "Tourette's" by Nirvana, and "Hey Hey, My My" by Neil Young. i was quite surprised by the versatility. i tried out the coil tap on "Purple Haze" but preferred the humbuckers. i started soloing with the Floyd Rose, and noticed that it was much better than the Ibanez RG i played a few minutes before (and i'm usually quite partial to the RG) if you like 90's rock and 80's metal, this guitar is perfect for you.

      Dive bomb deliverance

      By chodemancommeth

      from cincinnati, oh

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      this guitar has everything that a metal guitarist could ever want. the jumbo frets make it extremely easy to throw some of the most technical sweeps on any guitar i have played. the duncan invaders deliver the most devistating, thrashy tone i have encountered. the invaders in this guitar seem to be just as powerful and punchy as any active sets i have played on. the neck is extremely fast, and allows unrestrictive access to the upper frets. the floyd rose and the solid one piece body hold excellent tune. im usually afraid to do dive bombs on stage with other guitars but not this one. this guitar is a metal lead players dream.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

      I've played a couple of these guitars and no matter what I did or tried to play, I can't get it to play right . The bridge pickup is clear and gets good distortion or clean and it's really good for rhythm and riffing. The neck pickup sounds like it's on clean when it's not. I hate the FR because the strings sit weird and it makes playing it near impossible. The tone is great but I cannot see how Syn plays like he does on this. No doubt he's a great guitarist but this guitar sucks. Mahogany and ebony are essentials for me but this guitar just doesn't cut it. I don't see how everyone finds it so good but try it for yourself. It's overpriced too.

      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:

      This guitar is by far the best guitar I have ever played, I love the fact I can't knock it out of tune that's an amazing factor to it. Liking A7X doesn't affect my love for this guitar, The guitar has an amazing feel to it and I love the tone. I have dreamt of this guitar for years and finally heard it live it was like a dream come true. So this is proboly the best guitar for me hands down. So anybody who disagree's, sorry but out of you mind (in a bad way)
