Now, im no die hard Avenged Sevenfold fan or anything. But i just wanted to ask if anyone knew what kind of scales and/or modes that Synyster Gates uses with his solos and the lead licks.

Bogner Überschall
Marshall 1960A
Mesa Standard Rectifier 4x12
Gibson SG Standard
Schecter Hellraiser C-1FR
Natural and Harmonic Minor scales, probably some pentatonic licks.

I haven't heard their newest record, so I'm just basing that off the first three.
