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-S 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 bridge pickup. 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. To top it off, a Sustainiac pickup in the neck position offers mind-melting expressive capabilities, with 3 switchable infinite-sustain options. Complete with Syn’s personal stylistic touches, the end result is an axe tailor-made for unleashing global sonic mayhem. Case sold separately. Get powered by Schecter. Order today.
