Sustainiac Pickup & Electronics
Synyster’s Signature Custom-S is equipped with an innovative Sustainiac pickup system, allow players to add unique effects and harmonic overtones to their performance. The Sustainiac can prolong the sustain of the guitar by capturing the vibrations and turning them into vibration energy, this is then distributed back to the strings to increase the sustain of a note for as long as required. The Sustainiac also features an on/off switch and a mode switch, with the options between fundamental, harmonic, or a mix between the two. Selecting the fundamental mode will allow the strings to vibrate normally, but with an infinite sustain, while harmonic mode morphs plucked notes into a high harmonic vibration.
Synyster Gates’ Signature Humbucker
Along with the Sustainiac, the Schecter guitar is equipped with a custom humbucker designed by Synyster Gates, delivering clarity and sonic definition injected with raw power. A set of precision milled ceramic-8 magnets provide the humbucker with its incredibly hot output, while its hand wax potting eliminates unwanted feedback and squeal for the ultimate performance.
Stylish Mahogany Body
The signature guitar’s body is constructed from high quality mahogany, producing powerful tones and a sweet sonic punch. The mahogany tonewood offers naturally rich, warm characteristics, with a balance of grind and bite to create tight lows and appealing highs. The wood also delivers an excellent amount of depth, providing the guitar with an incredible sustain and resonance. The body is finished with Synyster’s iconic pinstripe design, featuring a gloss black colour with gold stripes and black hardware to create a visually stunning look.
Mahogany Neck & Ebony Fingerboard
The 3-piece mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard combination provides the Schecter with tight, warm tones and a defined character. The two tonewoods work well together, creating an open midrange with a fast attack, a muscular, controlled bass, and a snappy, sizzling high-end. It also comes with many other features including Grover machine heads, a Floyd Rose locking nut, and gold pearloid 'Syn' inlays with a death bat at the 12th fret.
Fast Performance & Stable Design
The neck and fingerboard offer an incredibly smooth performance, providing a fast playing experience ideal for shredding and soloing. The ultra-thin ‘C’ profile is designed to offer the ultimate comfort for technical players, allowing the fretting hand to naturally cup the neck to ensure comfort across the entire fingerboard. The neck is also designed with carbon fibre reinforcement rods to prevent bowing, no matter how much string tension the neck is under.
Floyd Rose Tremolo System

With a design that has stood strong for over 30 years, the Floyd Rose 1500 series allows you to adjust the string tension and pitch to create unique sounds such as dive bombs. The bridge works in tangent with the locking nut, increasing string stability and preventing the strings from detuning after excessive bending.
