OVERVIEW

A Synyster guitar with a secret weapon: the Sustainiac.

Designed to replicate the guitar Synyster plays onstage, the Schecter Synyster Custom Electric Guitar boasts outrageously heavy tone.

The Seymour Duncan Invader is designed for the heaviest tones a passive pickup can produce. The Sustainiac Driver/Pickup produces beautiful Humbucker tones when the Sustain switch is off, and works as the Sustainiac Driver when switched On.

The Sustainiac Driver creates an infinite feedback sustain of string vibrations by electromagnetic feedback. And of course, this signature guitar still features Synyster's iconic ebony fretboard with Deathbat and "SYN" inlays and is finished in satin gold burst with black pinstripes.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Gates Custom with Sustaniac Pickup Electric Guitar:

    This guitar manifests Syn's signature sound. Right out of the box without adjusting my amp I started riffing on some avenged and I was honestly blown away. I own one of the first hundred of these that syn signed. This guitar is beautiful and that's an understatement. The pictures online portrays it as looking almost a brown color, but in person the gold is the exact same as on my lp goldtop. The invader sounds amazing dirty but it also cleans up nicely. Rolling off the volume cleans it up quite well. I okay anything from blues to metal and this thing satisfies all needs. The sustainiac is a blast and doesn't sound too bad either. When I first got this guitar, mine had a terrible buzz on the first fret and the action was lowwwww but after setting it up and raising the Floyd it played like a dream. The neck is slick smooth. It isn't too thin and isn't too thick. The best way to describe it is a classic strat neck but a tinyyy bit thinner. the Inlay work is wicked and is almost a golden color. All around great guitar. If you're an avenged fan, this guitar is everything you're hoping it would be
