A guitar with Synyster style, coil-splittable humbuckers and Floyd Rose tremolo.
Designed to replicate the guitar Synyster plays onstage, the Schecter Synyster Gates Custom "Joker" Special Edition Electric Guitar boasts outrageously heavy tone. It has a mahogany body, set mahogany neck, 25-1/2" scale, ebony fretboard, two custom Seymour Duncan Custom Invader pickups, and a Floyd Rose Original locking tremolo that lets you execute the most subtle tremolo or wildest dive-bombing effects and return to perfect tuning every time. Special Synyster touches include Deathbat fretboard inlays with SYN in gothic lettering and a Joker Purple finish with Metallic Green Stripes.
The original Rotomatic® with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination.
Ebony has a snappy, crisp attack with the density of maple, but with more brittle grains, oilier pores, and a stronger fundamental tone than maple. It has a tremendous amount of percussive overtones in the pick attack, that mute out shortly thereafter to foster great, long, sustain.
Seymour Duncan Custom Syn Invader Pickups
Designed for Synyster Gates the Custom Syn Invaders have the heaviest tones a passive pickup can produce. The combination of three ceramic magnets, over-wound coils and twelve Custom Chrome cap screws make the Invader an electrifying force of energy. The wide magnetic field pumps power into your amp with a totally heavy sound.
Three-Piece Mahogany Neck
Made with three pieces of mahogany for extra stability. Three-piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the three-piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.
Floyd Rose 1000 Series Bridge
The Floyd Rose Tremolo System is used by more professionals throughout the world than any other. The patented double-locking design of the Floyd Rose Tremolo System allows you to lock your guitar in tune at the nut and at the bridge. Its high-quality steel parts are manufactured to exacting specifications.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Joker Special Edition Electric Guitar:
I Love this guitar! The mahogany solid body and 3 piece-mahogany neck make this guitar have great tone on clean channels. The custom Seymour Duncan Invaders that Synyster Gates help creat are some of the best I've ever heard. The Neck pick has a nice meaty tone and the bridge pick up is that great hot sound great for distortion. What I was happly surprised by is the guitar has a coil tapping feature!Pulling up on the tone controls on the guitar turns the humbucker pick-ups into single coil pick ups. Pushing the tone control back down again reverts them back to humbuckers. This is my first guitar with a Floating floyd Rose Tremolo and its extremely fun to play with. Dive-bombing on pinch harmonics is a blast with this guitar. The guys at Schecter even set up the intonation prior to sending the guitar so it stays in tune down the neck perfectly. The appearence of the guitar is stuning. The purple body with green pin stripes is the coolest guitar art I've ever seen. The inlays (which I believe are pearl) are sick! "Syn" and the "Death Bat" inlays are Strategically placed to make the neck of the guitar a peice of art. The only problem I had with the guitar is it did not come with a case. I wrapping it in blankes for protection tell I get a new case because it does not fit a normal case. If you have the money go buy this guitar or one of the other Synyster Gates Models! You won't regret it!
