From the Manufacturer
Presenting the Synyster Gates Standard from Schecter Guitar Research
"Synyster" Looks And Killer Sound
The Synyster Gates Standard is a more affordable version of the Synyster Gates Custom. This features the same wicked looks of the Avenged Sevenfold guitarist's signature model, but with a few different components, such as a bolt-on mahogany neck rather than a set neck, a rosewood fretboard in place of ebony, and Duncan HB-108 humbuckers rather than the custom Invaders on the Custom model. You still get the "SYN" and DeathBat inlays, a Floyd Rose tremolo, and the awesome gloss black finish with silver pinstripes.
The Synyster Gates Standard is based on the Avenger body shape, a long-time winner. The black finish and silver pinstripes are both killer and classy, with black hardware and binding to top it off. Custom "SYN" inlays and the the "Deathbat" at the 12th fret make it even better, for a unique and striking instrument.
ROTOMATICS® WITH 18:1 GEAR RATIO (102-18 SERIES) The original Rotomatic® with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination.
Rosewood Finger Board
The most common fretboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.
Duncan Designed HB-108 Detonater Pickups
The HB-108 is called the Detonator™ and is based on the high-output, Seymour Duncan SH-8 Invader. Ultra high output humbucker built for aggressive playing styles. Recommended for punk, garage, thrash, metal and other heavy rock styles.
Maple has a uniform grain, it's strong and stable, and it has less reaction from environmental changes than other hardwoods. Its tone is highly reflective, and focuses more energy onto the body wood. Maple transfers a bright tone to the body which complements the warm tones of a mahogany body.
Floyd Rose Special Tremolo Bridge
The Floyd Rose Special is the Authentic version of a licensed Floyd Rose tremolo system manufactured in Korea exclusively for Floyd Rose. The Floyd Rose Special maintains the construction parameters and features of an Original Floyd Rose, while utilizing zinc alloy saddles in place of steel and a zinc alloy sustain block in place of brass.

the humbuckers are seymour duncan detonators and perform very well.. the "humbucker/single-coil" switch gives a full change of tone in all three positions.. and the tone controller has a very radical change from high equalization to low equalization for all the six modes in wich you can set the pickups with the "humbucker/single-coil" switch.. even with a very specific equalization in your amp.. you can get a smooth acoustic sound using the "single coil" switch on and the tone controller near to half with the pickup selector in the neck pickup..
the schecter synyster gates standard electric guitar has a great versatility.. given its look you can think that is a heavy metal guitar but given its huge window for sound setting, you can even use it for blues, soft rock, a little jazz, even country music, i have actually done that, ballads and almost every thing you want if you know how to set up your amp as well..
The good - It looks freaking awesome! To me it's shape and paint job combined with the synyster/a7x details are a home run. It is comfortable to hold. It does play and sound very good (I think you would refer to that as it's action).
The bad. If you've never played before and are a complete novice and perhaps idiot like me you may end up breaking some strings in the first hour that you have it. The floyd rose tremolo styled bridge is an awesome feature but can cause the guitar to go out of tune easily. It is also a bit complicated to tune it compared to a more basic guitar because of the "whammy bar" styled bridge. Another problem I have, and it totally might just be user error on my part, is when ever I pick my low e strong it buzzes I suppose because it's hitting the fret board.
But anyway, if you know what you're doing with guitars go for it I say. And if you're a noob still go for it but I'd recommend taking it to someone who can teach you more about tuning it and replacing strings on it, stuff like that
Anyhow, the guitar showed up in great condition! Oh, but I do HIGHLY recommend adding the "this is a gift" option so they cover up the box. Otherwise it's pretty obvious what's in there with the big Schecter logo on the box. Again, if it's left on a porch there's too much risk for theft. But mine was covered in dark plastic which was perfect. The guitar was boxed very well and it was very secure and in perfect condition.
It is gorgeous and sounds great! I'm pretty "new" at guitar since I haven't played in many years but this guitar felt great! Though it's Floyd Rose and a pain to tune, once it is tuned it stays that way quite well!
Overall very pleased and happy with my purchase. Had never purchased a musical instrument through Amazon, but wouldn't hesitate to buy one again in the future! :-)
