Schecter Synyster Gates Standard in Black with White Pinstripes
Synyster Gates is a modern guitar hero, pioneering the aggressive/melodic metal sound that has defined his band Avenged Sevenfold. The Synyster Gates Standard may be one of the more affordable models in the range, but has a raft of premium features to suit the most serious of aspiring shredders.
Equipped with a pair of Gates' signature Schecter Diamond Series pickups, a Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo system and featuring the ultra-modern Avenger body style - this guitar is built for ultimate performance!
A Mahogany body gives this guitar a substantial feel and weight, providing a dark tone with plenty of richness in the mid-range. Finished in Synyster Gates' renowned pinstripe design, this guitar will draw in lots of attention not just for its excellent tones but also for its gorgeous looks.
An 'Ultra Thin C' neck profile provides fantastic comfort and playability, enabling you to play fast Synyster-style scale runs almost effortlessly. A 3-piece Mahogany neck will stay super-solid over time, which is reinforced with carbon fibre rods for extra stability. Fitted with 24 extra-jumbo frets too, your fingers will simply fly up and down the fretboard!
Floyd Rose Special Tremolo
The Schecter Synyster Gates Standard's Floyd Rose Special tremolo will ensure excellent tuning stability, even after the most brutal of divebombs and flutters. This particular 'Hot Rod' version of the Floyd Rose features super-cool chrome accents too - a Schecter exclusive.
Diamond Series Synyster Gates Pickups
A dual-dose of Diamond Series Synyster Gates signature humbuckers will deliver crushing saturated tones when used with high-gain, with exceptional bite and power. But these pickups aren't one-trick ponies, as with clean tones they sound warm and broad; letting softly-picked arpeggios ring out with great clarity. The push/pull tone knob lets you attain sweet single-coil tones!
