Synyster Standard FR

Synyster Gates, guitarist of the metal band Avenged Sevenfold, has been a Schecter artist for years and has had his own Schecter signature models for just as long, which are particularly characterized by the Avenger shape and unusual finishes. Floyd Rose Tremolo, Schecter USA Signature Pickups and the optional Sustainiac are essential for Synyster Gates. 

Available in the finish/color variants:


Schecter Pickups

Schecter produces both time-honored replicas and contemporary single coils and humbucker pickups. All pickups from A for “Apocalypse” to Z for “Z Plus” are produced in the USA. From vintage to ultra-hot sounds, from six to eight strings, Schecter has the right pickup for everyone.

Floyd Rose® Vibrato

The Floyd Rose® vibrato system, developed by Floyd D. Rose in the 1970s, is a widely used, advanced system for electric guitars. Thanks to its double locking system, the guitar remains in tune, even during extreme bends and dives. This flexibility, including pull-up and dive bomb, makes it particularly popular with rock and metal guitarists. Fine adjustment is carried out precisely using micro adjustment screws, some models also offer fine tuning screws on the string riders for precise control of the tuning.

Ebony Fretboard

An ebony fretboard is characterized by a clear and precise tone quality. The dense structure of the wood allows the string vibrations to be efficiently transferred to the body, resulting in a balanced sound spectrum with clear highs and well-defined mids.
