Synyster Gates Guitar Gloss Black with Silver Pinstripes Custom

NOTE: PERSONALLY SIGNED BY SYNYSTER GATES HIMSELF. WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. 

Never one to stand still, after over a decade of playing his Schecter Synyster Custom signature guitar all around the world, Synyster Gates had collected a few ideas about how to make it even better; The new, upgraded Schecter Synyster Custom guitar is the culmination of this effort.  Updated appointments include new ergonomic contours for increased comfort over long sets, glow-in-the-dark side-dot position markers to light your way on the darkest stages, and an upgrade to the Floyd Rose 1500 bridge system for precision dive-bombing pleasure. Not stopping there,  the guitar also comes installed with Synyster’s own signature US-wound Schecter Custom Shop pickup set; Utilizing three precision-milled Ceramic 8 magnets, Syn’s new powerhouse pickup pushes almost 18k DCR while retaining incredible detail and dynamic response, and is hand-potted to eliminate squeal and feedback, even at ungodly volumes. Complete with Syn’s personal stylistic touches, the end result is an axe tailor-made for unleashing global sonic mayhem --- and axe that has been personally signed by Syn himself. 

With a Mahogany body topped off with a stylish black gloss finish, the Synyster Custom is part of Synysters Gates’ personal line of guitars. Crafted with a thoughtful design focused purely on performance, this instrument mirrors the same model Synyster performs with on stage with Avenged Sevenfold. Featuring premium ebony construction, the Synyster Custom’s fretboard boasts a captivating Pearloid 'Syn' signature with gothic Death Bat inlays to give the instrument a completely unique look and feel.

The Custom’s glow-in-the-dark fret markers make for optimal performing conditions while playing on dark stages, while Synyster Gates’ Signature neck and bridge Humbucker pickups give the instrument a vivid sound and impressive look. With pearl pinstripes and a unique body shape, the Synyster Custom electric guitar looks as captivating as it sounds. Built for everyone from seasoned guitarists to beginners, the Synyster Custom is a powerful tool that boasts power, style and a superior design.

NOTE: Guitars can only be shipped within the USA. International orders are not possible at this time. 


Syn's Personal Notes about the Autographed Synyster Gates Guitar Gloss Black with Silver Pinstripes

I love this color scheme! To me, it has a dark, yet sharp visual, and I think that the gloss finish really compliments the look. The high-gloss finish also adds to a bit of brightness to the tone and I love recording heavy rhythms with this one because it gives the track some extra heavy metal edge.

I also love playing these guitars live on songs with lower tunings such as “Hail to the King” and “Paradigm”. They convey a super heavy but articulate sound that really drives and cuts through the mix on or off the stage. My soloing on this guitar tends to be a bit more aggressive as well. I really love playing big fat bends and vibrato in the style of Dimebag Darrell, and this guitar screams for me!

The thing I love most about Schecter is that what they create for me is exactly what they create for you guys. If I break a guitar or need a new one for whatever reason, they don’t have to build one for me. They just swing by the warehouse and overnight one that was on its way to a store. Once upon a time, I was a kid that bought guitars that my idols played and I never knew if I was getting something 100% authentic, and it would drive me nuts. You guys don’t have to worry about that problem when you spend your hard-earned money on one of my guitars. Chances are, I cut in line and got the one coming to you when I needed an extra ;) No worries though, they’re all top notch!
