The Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S is the culmination of over a decade of evolution to create the ultimate metal guitar. The Synyster Gates Custom-S is built for dishing out pulverizing sound and notes that sing forever.

Floyd Rose 1500 Bridge Provides Pitch Control and Tuning Stability

The Synyster Gates Custom-S comes equipped with a genuine Floyd Rose 1500 double-locking tremolo bridge for ultimate pitch control and rock-solid tuning stability. This incredible bridge lets you dive and pull up to the extreme while never having to worry about tuning accuracy.

High-Output Pickups Deliver Pummeling Tone

You'll get a searing tone from the high-output Schecter Synyster Gates signature humbucker pickup and Sustainiac humbucker in the neck position. The signature humbucker features ceramic-8 magnets for higher output while retaining harmonic cut. Blend that with the Sustainiac pickup and you are in total control of a crushing sound with infinitely singing notes.

Fast Neck and Fretboard Provide Easy Playability

The Synyster Gates Custom-S has a fast 3-piece mahogany neck and ebony fretboard with 24 frets, letting you grab huge bends and wide vibrato with ease. Its 14" radius and 25.5" scale length are built for down-tuned, high-gain riffing.

Ergonomic Contours and Glow-in-the-Dark Markers

Extreme body contours ensure this guitar is as balanced and comfortable as it is aggressive. Glow-in-the-dark side-dot position markers light your way on even the darkest stages. Upgraded for precision and comfort, the Synyster Gates Custom-S is tailored for unleashing sonic mayhem.
