When people buy the Syn sustaniac guitars, it's for the sustain. When I ordered this thing I was the same. I never really liked neck pickups, they just weren't for me. The sustaniac totally blew me away, not with the sustain, but with how well the pickup actually sounds. It's fat, crunchy and powerful, I actually use it 90% more than the bridge pup. It's two completely different sounds. When flicking on the sustaniac your nice warm PAF turns into an ear splitting lead with an amazing bite. I can't explain well enough how amazing this guitar is. The purple and green are just amazing, the ebony feels very locked on, the Floyd Rose is outstanding, and the knobs don't get in the way when playing. Not just 5 stars because I'm an A7X junkie, this guitar changed my perspective on how I set up my amp, definetely a game changer. For those who say the invaders are too noisy, I don't know what youre talking about, no problems here. The space in between the strings and the sustaniac pup will determine how fast it will morph your notes. It comes with instructions. Get it while you can, only so many made, triple digit like.
