    Great Guitar

    Very comfortable, sounds great, and the Sustainiac is fantastic. Hard to find a better guitar for the money.

    Basically everything

    Synyster Gates made a great choice, with the help of Schecter!

    I 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 may 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!

    Amazing Guitar

    I 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 guitar 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.
