I've been saving up for this guitar for five months and i finally revieved it just last week. As soon as i opened the package i fell in love with the amazing gloss fnish and the marble-looking A7X inlayed fretboard. the double locked strings are amazing for those players who love to do crazy bends in their songs, not allowing the guitar to get out of tune! the guitar also has an option to switch from humbuckers to single coil pickups by pulling the tone knob or pushing it down. The guitar has amazing tone and durability, with awesome action. the included whammy bar can bend up or down, making those metal harmonics sound absolutely perfect. and you can't tell me it doesnt look amazing. if you are a metal lover, or an avenged sevenfold fan, this guitar is the guitar for you. it may be the standard version, but the only difference is the pickups.
has amazing features, with the humbucker and pickup options
great quality!
perfect for its price

Let me just say that this guitar is okay but it isn't worth the money. The neck pickup is crap, but the bridge pickup can be covered up with buttloads of distortion to hide that it's pretty bad too. Action is ok but the rest of the guitar doesn't feel like a quality instrument. And I wouldn't reccomend buying a signature guitar as your main instrument. Tastes change and you could end up not liking A7x anymore. Signatures are better for guitar collectors, not people who need a steady instrument.

best guitar ever

By vassiliy lugovoy

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

This guitar is AMAZING, feels awesome, sounds AWESOME, and looks AWESOME, I bought this guitar without knowing what it feels like. I took a gamble. I'm super picky about how my guitar feels in my hands, and I was lucky, the ONLY guitar I feel comfortable playing.
P.S. Don't waste your money on the custom, you're paying for the same thing with different pick ups, and the bolted on neck feels just as comfortable as the one piece.

THIS GUITAR IS THE BOMB!!!!

By Connor-Ogo.d

from Japan

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

After an hour after having the guitar, i couldnt put it down for another 3 hours! the fretboard is absolutley amzing with the death bat and the jumbo frets. it has a very fast neck which is comes in handy! its also nice with the switchable pickups from humbuckers to the single-coil! overall this guitar is definetly worth buying!!!

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    This not only sounds and feels beautiful it works amazingly i played it i borrowed for a show and recording as well i don't give a flying didaleedoo if its a "signature" guitar it plays well having the bolt-on gives possibility for replacement if it does get warped or broken! Thumbs Up on that
    also the pickups i personally removed them later on but guess what it play's just as beautiful with SYN Invaders i only recommend consideration of changing the pickups after a while but thats if your like me who plays often in either a studio or a jam or even a small concert so you have a perfect guitar for a lower price i love it and you will too even if you lose your interest in A7X later on its a memoir and a beautiful instrument to have and use

    Great novelty, raunchy sound, bit overpriced.

    By Swyd_A7x

    from Nottingham, england, uk

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    Lets sandwich this; this guitar is a classic addition to a collection, great design, a good dirty sound with distortion, and good for sweep-picking. I can't complain about the action as i'm used to high action on my guitars, but it feels tacky for the price and cheaply made. The pickups lack power but overall i love the look, it's easy to play and the fact it is what it is means i'm glad i bought it.

    By Kaboose

    from New York

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    The synyster standard's features are very nice. the floyd rose tremolo lets you do alot with the guitar that you would want. also very comfortable to hold, but kinda heavy =]. the sound is great especially throught line6 and marshall products. stays in tune very well and the looks of it are mind blowing. im definately planning on gettin one, but im poor so it'll take a year lol

    Good, fun to play, unique look

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    Well first off, I had to return it and ask for another because the neck pickup was producing an unpleasant static noise. That said, i figure most of these guitars will not do that.I play usually with distortion on the bridge pickup, so I will focus on that: it rocked!The option to use the coil action was a nice addition, it works just as well as my jackson which is similarly priced. The neck plays nice, although i do not prefer glossy necks, but some of you will. It feels really balanced when you play standing up and this is a real plus. This is my eighth guitar, so I was sort of buying it for the novelty value as I really dig A7X.However, I know a lot of people will buy this guitar because they think it will make them play like synyster gates. Don't buy this as your first or second guitar, or as a guitar you are planning to use on stage. It looks really tacky when you perform with a guitar that looks like a famous musician (ie everyone and there grandma wants to use a gibson explorer).All that said, the guitar is nice and well worth the money and novelty value.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar about a year ago, its fun to play but compared to other guitars you can get for just a little bit more this one is not worth it. It's great as a collector for a fan of Avenged Sevenfold but it is not really practical otherwise.

    amazing

    By danny-.GS81

    from england

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    I just got this and it just blew my mind the first time I played it. It has a beautiful clean and distorted sound and the coil tap makes its clean sound even sweeter.Do not be put off by the duncan design pick ups, I was gonna change them for real invaders but there is no point as they sound as good if not better than the real deal. I have a dimebucker in my other guitar and these sound better.I deffenatly recomend this guitar because its beautiful looks tone and sustain (out sustained my rhythem guitarists les paul.)

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    This guitar exceeded my expectations. The fingerboard couldn't be any more amazing. The headstock is sweet. The inlays are sweet the pic doesnt show as good as look face 2 face. The pickups couldnt be more perfect no reason 2 swap them. This is floyd rose is perfect for this guitar. Buy this guitar I promise you wont be disappointed .. plus its a schecter you cant go wrong.

    Brutal Squeels and harmonic content...

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    I traded a Dean Razorback for this guitar and I must say it is the best decision i ever made. First off if you hate Floyds, Leave the page now. The P-ups are so brutal on harmonic content that if you don't all the way down on the string, you get a harmonic. it's truly an amazing guitar.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    This is an amazing schecter. I ordered it the day it was released and got it the next week. The neck is extremely fast and although the duncan designs arent as powerful as I expected, its still good. As far as weight, It's the lightest guitar I own. This is my 4th electric guitar and by far my favorite. I changed the strings to 12 gauges to get a stronger feel. My only complaint is that when I recieved it, it did not come with the tools to open the locking bridge to drop the tuning past what the fine tuners can do.For the price range, this guitar looks better, and plays better then anything else I have played. If you want to get the Synyster Gates look without dropping almost 1k, this is what you should go with.

    Pretty good Guitar

    By lukasbrown22

    from Yukon Oklahoma

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    Guitar had a great sound, this was my very first guitar with a floyd rose, but if you change tunings a lot this is not the guitar for you. Very hard to change tunings, if you only stay in one tuning than this is the guitar for you.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    For the price, this guitar has more than exceeded my expectations. The neck is sleek, the finish on the body is flawless, it never falls out of tune for me. The the intermediate player, this guitar is enough to keep for years. Using custom tones on rocksmith gives it the Synyster Gates sound and the body is so maneuverable. My only con would be that it takes more time to change tunings with the fret lock. Great guitar for any intermediate and above player.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    This guitar was amazing when i first got it and is still amazing. I have a Gibson SG Standard that i love and i used to think there was nothing better because that guitar just fit my hands so well but then i picked up this bad boy and realized just how fast a fretboard can be. The looks on this guitar are amazing the pinstripes make it look so bad a** and the pickups even though they are duncan designed sound unbelievable. The lisenced floyd rose is also a plus on this guitar. I've had mine in drop d for 3 weeks now and it has never come out of tune. If you're an avid guitarist who loves metal or rock and loves to play music, this is the guitar for you. You can't go wrong, This is a sick guitar.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Standard Electric Guitar:

    I was amazed. the floyd rose on this is great on it, action is pretty good, but I liked it. Pickups were great, I played it on a Micro cube, and it sounded amazing, cant imagine what it would sound like at a bigger amp. It was a very comfortable guitar to play, and I plan on picking one up.
