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.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

This is one of the finest Schecter guitars in existence. I love this thing and the crispy sound. It doesn't sound too much like like Synyster's "sinister" sound, but it does sound awesome. I'd recommend it to any metal and/or hardrock fan.

SYN FOR LIFE!

By B.C. Rich warlock metal master user

from Coarsegold, CA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

This guitar has the looks, the features, and the amazing quality to be used on stage. My dream guitar by far. Lets start with the head- a "paranormal", unique head, the only guitar to be seen on. Next, the neck- fretted with S-Y-N and the bands logo(deathbat). Now the body- unique shape with a custom design, black with whit stripes. All black on the back and sides. A pure black wah-wah bar to top it off. A unique guitar, with absolutely nothing that stands a chance in comparison. Simply amazing.

Great For Metal

By wakeup419

from Franklin Square, NY

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

I have recently bought this guitar, and for a pretty reasonable price you will get a guitar with a nice crisp tone, that will bring you a metal guitarists dream. The pickups make such a huge difference, you can shred it out or u can play it clean w/ the same impressive sound.

CRAZY GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Sidney

from Brownsville, PA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

I usually play dean guitars which sound good, but that was until I heard the brain melting sound of this guitar in my favorite A7X songs. Its tone and playability aren't a force to recon with. The looks and inlays are so amazing it's scary. I would recommended this guitar to anyone who loves A7X or metal. So save some cash and get one of these now!!!!!

SYNYSTER CUSTOM (Great)

By Steven R Ruz

from Tampa, FL

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

This guitar, the synyster gates custom schecter, is probobly the best guitar ive played. The feel of this guitar is amazing. It has a great lead as well as rythem, every note to every chord, punchy and clear. My favorite part of this guitar is the Floyd Rose Tremelo. You can bend a pinch harmonic for 10 seconds back and forth without the sound dying out, truly amazing. The Custom Duncan Invaders takes this guitar the extra mile. The sound qualtiy of these pickups are undescribable. The looks of the guitar speaks for itself. I love the SYN inlays, great plus. Overall this guitar is truly amazing, you cant go wrong with this buy.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

This guitar has an incredible sound. The custom Invader pickups give it great tone that is sure to impress anyone. Plus the original floyd rose is a great bonus. The overall quality of this guitar is great for the price. The great paint job, the custom headstock, the custom inlays, the custom pickups, the original floyd rose, and the fact that its a schecter, guaranty that you will be getting your moneys worth out of this one. For all that, the price it goes for is great. I would recommend using earny ball skinny top heavy bottom strings, they add to the great sound if you play in dropped D tuning. So like i said, with a look that will stun, and a sound that will kill, this guitar has it all if you ask me.

Dude, this guitar is sick.

By Cody

from Greene, Maine

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

I started playing guitar last year, I have been listening to Avenged Sevenfold for a while, I love Synyster Gates so I went to Guitar Center and found this guitar, I was instantly in love. This is the greatest guitar ever, It not only looks amazing but plays amazing. No matter what amp you plug it in you should expect a good sound. This is a very nice looking guitar, the feeling when you're playing it is just so smooth. It's also very versatile. It's an amazing deal for the price as well. Although if you are reading this I would recommend getting the other one with red stripes I think it looks cooler. I wish i got that instead, Don't get me wrong i love this guitar but the red one looks cool. This is a great guitar for any skill level and just how it looks makes you want to play it more.

Nice guitar

By Evan

from Chesterton, Indiana

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Custom Electric Guitar:

I've owned this guitar for about a year. It's really nice!! It looks cool, and hardly ever goes out of tune. at band practice, everyone tunes to my guitar cuz they know it'll be in tune. but the only bad thing is the locking system. it actually is not a bad thing, but becoming more and more experienced and im wanting to experiment with different tuning. So if u like changing tunings, maybe think about something else.
