Synyster Style Meet Infinite Sustain!

There are metal guitars, and then there's the Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S solidbody electric guitar, a metal monster to the core. If you're looking for an axe that can withstand the brutality of metal shredding, this is the guitar for you. A super-hot Seymour Duncan Custom Invader at the Synyster Gates Custom-S's bridge provides a solid base for riffing, and a Sustainiac neck pickup lets you pull off flying solos like nothing else out there. And since the Synyster Gates Custom-S also comes equipped with a genuine Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo bridge, you're all set for wailing solos, too. Get your Synyster Gates Custom-S from Sweetwater!

Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Everything a master shredder could ask for
  • Sustainiac humbucker gives you never-ending tone
  • Floyd Rose 1000 Series bridge lets you carve out hardcore bends
Everything a master shredder could ask for

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. It's 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. It boosts your pick attack with meaty, percussive overtones that mute out quickly and drive your sustain. With the Floyd Rose, you can readily see why the Custom-S is metal monster to the core.

Sustainiac humbucker gives you never-ending tone

You just can't beat the abundant sustain you'll get out of your Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S's Sustainiac humbucking neck pickup, literally! This unique pickup design features a special sustain circuit that's designed to let notes ring on as long as you like. Just kick in the sustain circuit, play a note or chord on your Synyster Gates Custom-S, and let the electromagnetic feedback carry your sound as long as you like. You haven't busted out a solo till you've rocked a Synyster Gates Custom-S!

Floyd Rose 1000 Series bridge lets you carve out hardcore bends

Schecter knows that serious shredders, such as you, demand absolute performance out of their guitars. That's why they loaded the Synyster Gates Custom-S with a real Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo bridge. A remake of the original Floyd Rose blade tremolo, this incredible bridge lets you grab on, rock out, and never worry about pulling your action out of whack. You'll get both the rock-solid reliability and the tight response you need when you rock out with a Synyster Gates Custom-S!

  • Signature guitar of Avenged Sevenfold's phenomenal shredder

Dreams come true

Everything a 15 year old boy once dreamed of is now 22 year olds reality. This guitar is a sign from the gods of rock that dreams come true

Great Guitar All Around

This Synyster Custom S guitar is an amazing instrument all around. You receive amazing tone from the Duncan Invader in the bridge, as well as a warm, rich tone from the sustainiac. Definitely worth the money it costs, and more. I recommend this guitar not only to metal players, but also jazz, rock, and even country! The range of tones available from this guitar is crazy. The only thing which I would possibly do differently is give it coil tapping similar to what the standard model has. Overall, I am 10/10 on this instrument. I would buy it all over again if I had to. Thanks Schecter and Synyster Gates!

Simply Awesome

I placed my order for this guitar Fri May 30th at 1:30 pm and here she is at my door step Saturday the 31st at 10 am. Thats pretty damn impressive. I ordered the demo version because honestly i couldnt wait for them to get more "new" ones in stock. and I am not disappointed. Beautiful guitar, very fast neck, sustainiac pick up is incredible. Ebony fret board is awesome. If i didnt know i ordered a demo version i wouldnt know the difference because this thing is MINT. Awesome job sweetwater. I couldnt be happier.

Wonderfull guitar

I originally was hesitant due to this being made in Korea. Well after recieving it and playing it a bit I am blown away. The fit and finish is amazing. Plays like a dream. The sustain switch adds some real interesting options. This guitar is definatly worth the $$. Buy it, you'll be glad you did....
