Metal MonsterWant sustain for weeks? The Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S is your weapon of choice. The Synyster Gates Custom-S solidbody electric guitar is built to shred. Its 3-piece mahogany neck gives you the stability you need to cut loose, while a genuine Floyd Rose bridge lets you really lean into your vibrato. A Duncan Invader at the bridge awaits your command to unleash metal mayhem, while the Sustainiac driver/pickup in the neck position serves up fearsome sustain. If you're on a quest for your ultimate metal guitar, the Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S may just be it.
Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S at a Glance:
The Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S is all about sustain. There's two ways to juice sustain: pedals that modulate your guitar signal (nice try), and amp feedback (gratifying, but hard to control). Then there's Sustainiac, which gives you the best of both worlds by directly vibrating your guitar strings, simulating the effect of amp feedback, but with total control - and much more intensity.
Built to shred
The Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S is a shredder's dream. Its 24 jumbo frets and flatter-than-Kansas ebony fingerboard give you crisp, snappy attack. Dense like maple, but with oilier pores, more brittle grain, and a stronger fundamental, ebony is the tonewood you want under your fretting fingers if you're shredding. Ebony boosts your pick attack with meaty, percussive overtones that mute out quickly, settling back into juicy sustain. Factor in the Floyd Rose, and you can readily see why the Custom-S is metal-monster to the core.
If looks could kill
The Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S looks like a serious weapon, and it is - the name says it all. With its black with silver pin stripes finish, ebony fingerboard with Death Bat inlay, and black hardware, the overall look is stylishly menacing. Shred dangerously, with the Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S.

Synyster Gates made a great choice, with the help of Schecter!
by Matyasl from OHI purchased this item after buying 2 Ibanez guitars and both are not even close to the quality and features this custom guitar has. The sound from the Seymour Duncan Invader is just fantastic. Other m... read more [+]ay say it doesn't sound well in a clean channel, well that's because Syn wanted a pickup that can be passive but yet sound like an active pickup. I would say he made a better choice switching the neck position pickup with the Sustainiac Stealth Pro. Not only do to the features of it, but the tone it has available. The neck has a very D-shaped curve with it, but is not to thick or to cheesy to play on. Overall, this guitar get a 10/10 from me since I have play the regular custom and love it just as much. Great product for the amount you put into it! close [-]

by Kyle from ArizonaI also own the original Synyster Custom, and I have to say that the new Synyster Custom-S is an amazing complimentary guitar to the original. I had considered the Jackson DK2S as an option for a guit... read more [+]ar with the Sustainiac pickup in it before the news of the Custom-S was released by Schecter. I am really glad I held out. This guitar is AMAZING. The new abilities you have with the sustainiac and the fact that you are able to get that very distinct A7X Synyster Gates sound is awesome. I have to say I would not sell my original Synyster Custom though as they really do both work well for different things, they both have completely different sound capabilities, hence the fact that Synyster Gates himself uses both models on stage. If you are familiar with the original Synyster Custom you can expect most of the same great featured with a few minor changes. New features would be the Sustainiac Stealth Pro pickup system, and some minor hardware differences that you may not notice if you don't have an eye for detail. The most significant loss is that the coil tap is not longer available on the bridge pickup. At first I found this to be dissapointing but have grown to find this to be very acceptable, since I do own both custom models and between the 2, I am able to play/record everything I need to. If you are an Avenged Sevenfold fan, Schecter fan, or are just looking for a guitar with amazing versatility, then this is a must buy !! Don't think about it, just do it. close [-]
