Synyster Gates signature Schecters

WebGuy General News

Also known to others as Brian Elwin Haner. The mean fiddler of Avenged Sevenfold is no slack on the guitar. From Waking the Fallen to the latest release, Nightmare (2011), his weapon of choice has predominantly been a Schecter, wielded with masterful technique.


His signature Schecter nowadays consists of an Avenger body shape, stocked up with his custom Seymour Duncan Syn Invaders and a Floyd Rose locking tremolo system. Topped off with a 24X jumbo fretted Ebony fingerboard. For the geekier and more picky, the guitar has a scale length of 25.5″ and grover tuners.


Here at Westside MI, Denmark street, London we have quite a few of Syn’s custom Schecter guitars. We have the Standard and Deluxe models which sport Rosewood fingerboards, a bolt on neck and Duncan Designed pickups, the Custom (mentioned above) and the Custom-S which contains a Sustaniac pickup. Available in a wonderful array of colours including black, white, red, gold and even a green/purple pinstripe suitably named ‘the joker’.

If only he had his own amp to accompany the axe… J
