When the strings are played hard, the wood adds extra layers of punch to the tone, while light to medium picking offers more clarity. The addition of an ebony fingerboard enhances the Synyster Gates Standard with a beautifully bright, responsive attack, with its natural feel delivering a smooth performance and plenty of overtones. It also comes with many other features including Schecter machine heads which offer smooth, fine tuning and great stability, and a pearloid 'Syn' inlay with a death bat at the 12th fret.
