My son fell in love with the looks of this guitar as he is an Avenged Sevenfold fan. We went to Guitar Center to check out this model, as well as have him try several other models in various price ranges. He kept saying the Synyster Gates Custom was the best feeling and playing. I grabbed it and plugged in to a decent Peavey Vyper amp and let it fly. It immediately brought a smile to my face! I expected my son to be biased, but he was telling the truth about the guitar. The string action, sound, and original Floyd Rose were wonderful out of the box. I then read that this guitar is solid mahogany with a mahogany neck through body, and an ebony fretboard. After comparing apples to apples I was very satisfied that not only was this guitar one of the nicest I have ever played, it was a great price for what you get. The sound with the Duncans is HEAVY and soulful. Using the coil tap you go from humbucker to single coil and the guitar becomes another animal. Very versitile for any type of music. Not the usual metal guitar that is useless for anything other than metal. I am very happy as a parent and a guitarist with this guitar. My son now has an instrument he loves, which most importantly will keep him playing, and it is also a great guitar he will have for life.

Amazing Guitar!

By Timothy Dunn

from Florida

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

Let me start out by saying that I have a few guitars and this is by far the best one. I've had this guitar for about 7 months now and it is still just as perfect as the day I got it. The pickups are amazing, the feel is incredible, it looks like a sexy beast and it is just a heck of a lot of fun to play. The only thing that you should know before getting one of these BEASTS, that it has a Floyd rose and Extremely sensitive pickups. This is not a bad thing, it just means that with every guitar, you need to know how to use it before you go out and play on a stage. The Floyd Rose is awesome, and if used correctly you can get some crazy noises out of it. However, if you have never owned a Locking system before, you should do some research, or ask the nice people at guitar center about it. It's not difficult to master, it's just different for re-stringing and tuning, that's all. The pickups are the Seymour Duncan invaders and they are awesome. You can play clean on the rhythm, then slam it into extreme overdrive and switch to your bridge and still sound great. Also, (and I did not realize this when I tried one in the store) but the tone knob pulls out for single coil and pushes in for humbucking awesomeness, which gives even more versatility to the guitar. One thing to know is that if you are playing with the amp I use, (Line 6 Spider Valve 212) the feedback can get really overpowering and it occasionally screeches, however, I believe that it is the amp's fault more than the guitar's. (I say this not to bash the amp or the guitar, just make sure you test it with your amp before you drop a grand on one.) One thing that needs to be said however is that this guitar is so amazing that it will most likely put your other guitars to shame (as it did mine), and that's all fine and great unless you like to play different types of songs (different by tuning). Then there is a problem because of the Floyd. I play nearly every type of genera of music. Classic Rock to metal to ska I've even done a rap cover with mine, but each tends to use a different tuning, and this guitar is not the easiest to switch to a different tuning with. For me, the problem are the springs in the back to counter balance the strings. Because every time I switch tuning, I have to open her up and tighten or loosen them which I hate doing because I fear that I will strip either a screw or even worse, the hole it goes in, and there is really no easy fix to that one. In conclusion, this guitar is easily the best guitar I've ever played, and will most likely put any guitar it goes up against to shame. Just remember that if you decide you want one, make time for a trip to guitar center and play one there. Make sure you do adequate research on anything you have questions with, and if you've never had a locking system before, defiantly ask a professional about them before you buy one.

Best Investment!

By CHRISTOPHER BARNES

from Gaylesville, Alabama

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

I was planning to buy the Synyster Gates Custom for some time, so I convinced my father to buy it on his GC Card and I just make the payments. And my plan worked!! This guitar is beyond amazing, I love the Invader pickups and the Humbucker/Single-Coil switch. The switch gives the best boost for those awesome Gates solos and leads. The neck is just the right fit, my hand slides down the frets with ease. And the Floyd Rose is so wicked, no bridge and whammy is like it.

The Ultimate Shredder

By R Young

from Chapel Hill, NC

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

I am a huge fan of everything Avenged Sevenfold so of course when I saw this guitar I dove for it. I'm glad that I did, if your interested in shredder and playing on the high E string and up on the higher frets, than this is for you. The Seymour Duncan pickups make it very easy to make the high notes sound the best possible. And although the sleek mean looking body may look uncomfortable, let me tell you, it's one of the most comfortable guitars I've played, I've played for 8 years and make regular trips to guitar center. The top cut away fits perfectly with your body when sitting down. If I had to make one complaint it would be that it isn't the greatest for rhythm and low notes, it's definitely a shredders guitar. To sum it up, it's is amazing for shredding and lead guitars, and it has the looks to prove it.

Amazing Guitar!!

By Jared Kriege

from Okmulgee, Oklahoma

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

I fell in love with this guitar as soon as i saw it and i finally got it yesterday. For starters, the looks are totally sick. Everything from the awesone paint job to the S-Y-N and deathbat inlays are just killer. The pickups are great for metal, but with the coil tap it can handle any type of music you want to play. The Floyd Rose is great. I've dive-bombed it all the way to the body and it came back up in perfect tuning. It is a little heavy since it's made of mahogany, but you'll be having so much fun playing it that you won't even notice. I recommend this guitar 110% to anyone who loves Avenged Sevenfold or is just looking for a great guitar.

Schecter Synyster Custom *Amazing*

By Austin

from Scotts, MI

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

First off, I have had this guitar for almost 2 months. I bought this guitar because I am a huge fan of Avenged Sevenfold and Synyster Gates. I have been playing for almost 2 years, and I am a "shredder", but I also play MANY other styles of music. This guitar is amazing. I love the Original Floyd Rose. The Floyd isn't for everyone. I enjoy using it, and it only goes out of tune if I use the tremolo relentlessly. I haven't had to change the strings yet, but I'm just going to have a tech do it for the first time. I really like the finish and the fretboard inlays. The pickups are the highest gain passive pickups on the market. I was told Seymour Duncan made them on a dare from a friend. Good thing he did. These are the best passive pickups I have ever played with. The coil-tap on the master tone is great. I use it to get Strat tones for playing Hendrix and SRV stuff, as well as on the clean channel. The Grover tuners are amazing, the 18:1 ratio is great for fine tuning. The neck on this guitar is a DREAM. The neck is incredibly easy to play on, whether it be sweeps or fast alternate picking, its easy. The neck joint and the cutaway give you great access all the way to the 24th fret. I have played many Schecters, and I am extremely satisfied with their guitars. My next guitar will probably be another Schecter. I recommend this guitar to anyone, but people who are not huge fans of Avenged Sevenfold may feel a bit weird playing a signature guitar from their lead guitar player. It is definitely worth the money. 100%. Wouldn't give it up for the world.
