Schecter has revealed the new 2016 Synyster Gates signature guitars – the Synyster Custom-S has upgraded the Sustainiac pickup & Floyd Rose tremolo & has 2 new finishes Satin Gold Burst & Satin Dark Earth Burst. Designed to replicate the guitar Synyster plays onstage with Avenged Sevenfold, the Schecter Synyster Gates Custom-S electric Guitar boasts outrageously heavy tone…

The Schecter Synyster Custom-S features a Mahogany body and 3-piece Mahogany neck, Ebony fingerboard, the neck pickup has been replaced with the Sustainiac OEM SYN, the Floyd Rose has been upgraded to the 1500 series, it has glow-in-the-dark side dot markers and of course, this signature guitar still features Synyster’s iconic fretboard Deathbat and “SYN” inlays.

Invader pickup – Designed for the heaviest tones a passive pickup can produce. A combination of three ceramic magnets, over-wound coils and twelve cap screws make the Invader an electrifying force of energy. Sustainiac pickup – this Driver/Pickup produces beautiful Humbucker tones when Sustain switch is off, and works as the Sustainiac Driver when switched On. The Sustainiac Driver creates an infinite feedback sustain of string vibrations by electromagnetic feedback. Bridge pickup is selected when Driver is on

The Sustainiac is the ‘secret weapon’ for controlled feedback and infinite sustain. First, the pickup signal is processed by the Sustainiac circuit, and then connected to the Sustainiac Driver. The Driver turns the amplified note into vibrational energy. This vibrational energy is then fed back into the strings for infinite sustain. This string vibration is similar to playing in front of a loud Amp.
