Hii yeah i'm looking into buying a Schecter Syn Custom, in my opinion it has quite a good spec on it, and looks absolutely BEAAAAAAAST.

what are your opinions, worth getting?

Cheers.

persoanlly i feel there are WAY better sigs out there.

I mean invaders arent all that great.

Syn has a pro rig, rack etc to get his tone.

plus here him sweep... not to clean, i will give him the benefit of a doubt and blame the invaders.

so IMHO no, not worth getting

My advise, don't buy a signature Guitar. You want versatility incase hypothetically you get tired of playing Shred or fancy a change. Just go to the shop and try out as many different guitars as you can.

ERm, yeah thanks for that.. -.-
I already know this, so... why are you telling me?
It's off topic.


well why spend money on a guitar you dont need and is overpriced for what it is and probably isnt as good as your tokai when you have a rather mediocre amp in need of upgrading, the money would be much better spent on a new amp, to help you find a better tone and more importantly your tone not a guitar that is unnecesary and probably surplus to your requierments

just my .02

Also think you're getting mixed up with the Syn Standard, Teh Custom has Detonators not Invaders.

#13
wait the syn custom haz tha ofr right?

but just one thing

the trem can go insanley high on that thing

also there are indeed better value guitars out there

to stay with a7x
the zacky standard and custom are goosd value
they are s series with jb's added and only 250 more then the s-1 itself
and with the standard you get a kickass graphic too
#15
like in afterlife that new live video

syn does an insane high trem harmonic there

you should wait till the limited white one comes out tough

Detonators are even worse then invaders HAHA

wow i thought they would at least give geniune Duncans in it.

that just adds to my point.


EDIT: this just adds to the point that this sig isnt that good if the artist doesnt use its specs

p.s the custom has HB-102's which is another "duncan designed"

They updated it then because they always were invaders man

well thats what i thought.. if you read the above posts.

i believe they are trying to put the detonators as "special invaders"

tis b.s.

either way a bad pickup, i mean on top of mahogany as well....

i can hear the mud now.

1. I'm gonna buy the white syn custom..
2. I'm gonna put in new Pickups..
3. Make myself a cheese sandwich
4. Pureee POONAGEE.
#24
^you're pretty much sorted then

i've played a squier with detonators ones



also
get JB's
as far as i know zacky uses JB's

so you would atleast get a good A7x tone
#25
Ok i mean you can buy it.

but look at the guitar as an investment...

if you get the Syn Sig.

you will want better pickups.

then a better amp and what not.

and at 999.00 USD

for the Custom (the white one will be more)

there are WAYYYY better guitars at 1000 dollars, which come perfect as is.

i mean i LOVE schecter man (look at my gear) but go with the loomis or maybe another model, for i can almost guarentee it will be the Syn.

hell get a jackson! esp! ibanez! the list goes on
