OVERVIEW

A Synyster guitar with a secret weapon: the Sustainiac.

In a special finish and designed to replicate the guitar Synyster plays onstage, the Schecter Synyster Custom S 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 dark earth burst with black pinstripes.

Case sold separately.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Gates Custom S Satin Dark Earth Burst Electric Guitar:

I have been playing guitars for 40 years. I play out professionally( but its not my main job)I own gibsons, fenders, g&l and esp. I am mostly a strat player. But I saw this on SDOD and couldnt pass it up. 25.5 scale neck , ebony finger board, mahogany body, it checked the boxes. I don't really listen to avenge sevefold or that kind of music but i do find it interesting. The sustaniac is ok..not my kind of thing, and i think a good pedal could replicate it.. That being said, the neck pickup sounds pretty good... The bridge pick up is dark... and compressed...This thing is hot. Turning it down and its still hot.. I installed a coil tap switch on the invader pick up and suprisingly it cleaned up nicely. ( not sure why they donet give you one from the factory.. I might try some JB pickups in it to get the sound I really want.. However it sounds good,, IT just not s versatile as I need..
The neck is crazy good..it plays fantastic...it is silk.. love it. it rings
the body is well balanced and easy on my neck / back/ and is very resonant.
This color is pretty nice... Subdued..nice craftsmanship.
You wont be disappointed.. it has its own tone..a hybrid of star and les paul at times... ( not full strat ..but can cop some of it).
being an older guy , playing for years i would say its a great guitar. if you can get it one sale, so it. If you can't its still a great ax.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Gates Custom S Satin Dark Earth Burst Electric Guitar:

    First of all, I'm a huge fan of Avenged Sevenfold. Synyster Gates is a brilliant guitarist and his signature guitar does not disappoint. The satin finish is wonderful, especially on the neck. I don't think I've ever bought a guitar that was this perfect straight from the factory. Even much more expensive guitars have needed some set up. This one was dead on perfect!

      I keep finding new uses, tones, and songs by just playing her... Let's put it this way, the other day I played her for 6 hours straight and didn't even notice...
