Overview

Designed to replicate the guitar Synyster plays onstage, the Schecter Synyster Gates Custom S Electric Guitar boasts outrageously heavy tone and comes hand-signed by Gates himself.

Only 100 of these signed guitars are being made available worldwide exclusively for Guitar Center. Each one features a laser-etched backplate signed by Syn himself.

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.

Grover tuners
The original Rotomatic with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination

Ebony fingerboard
Ebony has a snappy, crisp attack with the density of Maple, but with more brittle grains, oilier pores, and a stronger fundamental tone than Maple. It has a tremendous amount of percussive overtones in the pick attack, that mute out shortly thereafter to foster great, long, sustain

Seymour Duncan Invader/ Sustainiac pickups
Invader- Designed for the heaviest tones a passive pickup can produce. A combination of three ceramic magnets, over-wound coils and twelve cap screws make the Invader an electrifying force of energy. Sustainiac- This Driver/Pickup produces beautiful Humbucker tones when 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. Bridge pickup is selected when Driver is on

3-pc Mahogany neck
Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. 3 piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

Sustainiac Functions
The 'Secret Weapon' for controlled feedback and infinite sustain. First, the pickup signal is processed by the Sustainiac circuit, and then connected to the Sustainiac Driver. The Driver turns the amplified note into vibrational energy. This vibrational energy is then fed back into the strings for infinite sustain. This string vibration is similar to playing in front of a loud Amp.

Sustainiac Mini Switches
On/Off & Normal/Mix/Harmonic Mini Switch Functions
On/Off Switch: This turns on/off the Sustainiac driver. Normal/Mix/Harmonic Switch: Normal Mode- String vibration will continue to ring natural fundamental note. Mix Mode- Some frets yield fundamentals, while others yield harmonics. Notes below the 12th fret will mostly morph into 2nd or 3rd harmonics. Harmonic Mode- Sustained notes morph into a high 5th or 7th harmonic vibration.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Gates Custom S Signed Electric Guitar:

      First time with the sustaniac and it sounds good. I must admit I'm still learning little things here and there but that's what makes it so fun. The neck allows for easy play and access on those harder to reach frets and the tone makes it easy to forget that the guitar looks metal. No flaws on my end. The Floyd rose is also very nice though I do sometimes get annoyed especially when I have to restring one. All and all though I new that going in. If you want a great guitar buy this one. You won't be disappointed

      This product, to be honest not sure what i think of it? my gut has mixed emotions about this guitar!
      My cousin who is a professional player has ridiculed me for buying a foreign model?
      I"m stressed to the max about it.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Synyster Gates Custom S Signed Electric Guitar:

      An absolutely amazing guitar with a huge metal look but that has the sound a playability for everything from jazzy cleans to heavy metal crunch! And let's not forget, it's also signed by Syn which makes it a piece of music/metal history!
